How to get an extra wide table on the paper?

Problem

Some tables could become very wide, sometimes even wider as the paper width. One solution could be taken the whole tabular in a small environment. But there is a better way.

Solution

An esay way is to change the orientation of the table, by using usepackage lscape, which allows to change the orientation of the page and therefor also the table.

Example

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{lscape}
\begin{document}

% An extra wide table 
\begin{landscape}
After this point, everthing is displayed in landscape format.\\
\ \\
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|}
\hline
Year & 2000 & 2001 & 2002 & 2003 & 2004 & 2005 & 2006 & 2007 & 2008 & 2009 & 2010 \\
\hline 
GPD in billions & 235  &  225 bn & 223 bn & 323 & 423  & 523 & 624 & 725 & 826  & 924  & 1022  \\
\hline 
\end{tabular}
\end{landscape}
After this point, everthing is displayed in portrait format.\\

\end{document}
Output:

Hint

After \begin{landscape} and after \end{landscape} is an automatic page break.
