Hi,
As far as I know, longtable provides headers and footers for tables
spanning multiple pages, For eg:

\begin{longtable}{llr}
...
...

\multicolumn{3}{c}%
{{\bfseries \tablename\ \thetable{} -- continued from previous page}} \\
...
...
\end{longtable}

I really don't know what it has to do with the question raised here on
