Quite simply, the line that reads

\vspace{2cm}

should be changed to

\hspace{2cm}

Note that \vspace is inoperative inside paragraphs and in any case "v"
stands for vertical while "h" for horizontal.

Putting \hspace*{2cm} before the first table will indent it by 2cm (the *
forces LaTeX not to ignore the space, as it would normally at the start or
end of a line).

Have a look at

...\doc\latex\help\latex2e.chm

and choose \vspace, \hspace.

Or try Sec 6.3.3 in lshort.dvi (The not so short....).

Cordialmente,  Philip G. Ratcliffe
