# [Tex/LaTex] How to make a table on more than one page by using the table environment

ltablextablestabularx

EDIT Like some comments below are remarking the table environment doesn't allow tables over more than one page. However the solution works fine

I need to make a table over more than one page. The standard approach seems to be to use the ltablex environment. However, it doesn't work; also I assume that the table environment may also be required for the thesis template I work on (e.g. suppose for the capture).

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{ltablex}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}
\caption{Example of an table}
\label{tab:daypack}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{@{}cX@{}}
\toprule
\textbf{Column 1} & \textbf{Column 2} \\[6pt]
\midrule
$R$ & 1This is an example sentence \\[6pt]
$R$ & 2As well as the line before \\[6pt]
$A$ & 3Also this is an example \\[6pt]
$R$ & 4This is an example sentence \\[6pt]
$R$ & 5As well as the line before \\[6pt]
$A$ & 6Also this is an example \\[6pt]
$R$ & 7This is an example sentence \\[6pt]

If you must combine tabularx and longtable, I prefer ltxtable to ltablex:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{ltxtable}
\begin{document}

\LTXtable{\textwidth}{t1.tex}

\end{document}


where t1.tex is

\begin{longtable}{@{}cX@{}}
\toprule
\textbf{Column 1} & \textbf{Column 2} \\[6pt]
\midrule
$R$ & 1This is an example sentence \\[6pt]
$R$ & 2As well as the line before \\[6pt]
$A$ & 3Also this is an example \\[6pt]
$R$ & 4This is an example sentence \\[6pt]
$R$ & 5As well as the line before \\[6pt]
