# Sideways longtables in PDF

Hello,

I'm trying to write a pdf that contains a few longtables that should be
printed sideways. I'm using the pdflscape package. This package does
turn the landscape pages, but it also turns the table. The table is now
standing verticaly (90 degreegs turned) and falling outside of the
page. I can only see the first two collumns, the rest is printed
outside the borders of the page. I hope you get an idea of how this
looks, it's hard to describe.

My code looks as follows:

\begin{landscape}
\begin{longtable}{|l|l|l|l|p{8.7cm}|}
\hline
.....
\caption{caption lines}
\label{tab:tablename}
\end{longtable}
\end{landscape}

I first builded this in postscript and it works very well in there. But
when I'm trying to build the same code in pfd it doesn't work. Can

Kind regards,
Jantien
