#### 12.6.4 Tables in LaTeX export

For LaTeX export of a table, you can specify a label, a caption and placement options (see Images and tables). You can also use the `ATTR_LaTeX` line to request a `longtable` environment for the table, so that it may span several pages, or to change the default table environment from `table` to `table*` or to change the default inner tabular environment to `tabularx` or `tabulary`. Finally, you can set the alignment string, and (with `tabularx` or `tabulary`) the width:

```     #+CAPTION: A long table
#+LABEL: tbl:long
#+ATTR_LaTeX: longtable align=l|lp{3cm}r|l
| ..... | ..... |
| ..... | ..... |
```

or to specify a multicolumn table with `tabulary`

```     #+CAPTION: A wide table with tabulary
#+LABEL: tbl:wide
#+ATTR_LaTeX: table* tabulary width=\textwidth
| ..... | ..... |
| ..... | ..... |
```
