Multi-Paged Tabulated Material

This code requires country-codes.csv.

\documentclass[captions=tableheading]{scrartcl}

\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}

\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{datatool}

\DTLloaddb{countries}{country-codes.csv}

\begin{document}

If the data is too large to fit on a single page we need to use the
\texttt{longtable} environment instead. See Table~\ref{tab:countries}.

\begin{longtable}{cl}
% Set up headers and footers
 \caption{A Sample Long Table}
 \label{tab:countries}\\
 \bfseries Country Code & \bfseries Country Name\\
 \endfirsthead
 \caption{A Sample Long Table (Continued)}\\
 \bfseries Country Code & \bfseries Country Name\\
 \endhead
 \multicolumn{2}{r}{\emph{Continued on next page}}\\
 \endfoot
 \endlastfoot
 \DTLforeach*{countries}{\Code=code,\Name=name}{\Code&\Name\\}%
\end{longtable}

\end{document}
Download sample-longtable.tex or sample-longtable.pdf.
