I am trying to include two landscape tables on one page, with the first one being in the left column and the other placed in the right one. I have tried several solutions including the minipage solution. I could not 'force' the second one into the right column with minipage, any suggestions?

I have the following code:

```
\begin{landscape}
\begin{table}[ht]
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.5\linewidth}\centering
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|}
\hline
1&1&1\\
\hline
2&2&2\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{minipage}
\hspace{0.5cm}
\begin{minipage}[b]{0.5\linewidth}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|}
\hline
1&1&1\\
\hline
2&2&2\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{minipage}
\end{table}
\end{landscape}
```

This is the standard twocolumn-setup in landscape mode, I am trying to rotate the tables (landscape) but displayed horizontally in a minipage setup. I dont know if this is the correct approach, but its the closest I've got.

The problem is clearly that you've got too much text on the line:

is off by more than 0.5cm.

You should try loading the

`caption`

or`captionof`

package and write
