Thanks Samuel, but that is not what i want. I will try to elaborate.

They are 4 separate tables, but i want them to be numbered as say
table(1a), table(1b), table(1c), table(1d). So i want each of them as
a subtable in table 1. The subtable package does this, but it tries to
squeeze all 4 subtables into a single page. \pagebreak does not work
within a table. Nor do i see any option to have \subtable and/or
\pagebreak within a \longtable.

To summarize, i want 4 subtables of a single table on 4 successive
pages of the manuscript. But \subtable[] squeezes all of them on a
single page. Please provide a solution.

Thanks.

Arvind
