How to print two Different Tables using jspdf-autotable

I want to print these two tables as pdf using jspdf autotable plugin. But the script that I wrote prints only second table. I think the problem lies in writing script. Will someone guide me how to print these two tables using jspdf-autotable.

<button onclick="generate()">Print</button>

<table id="tbl1" border="2">
<thead>
<tr>
<th>ID</th>
<th>Name</th>
<th>Address</th>
<th>Marks</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>01</td>
<td>Johnson</td>
<td>UK</td>
<td>112</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>02</td>
<td>Jim</td>
<td>US</td>
<td>142</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>03</td>
<td>Johnson</td>
<td>UK</td>
<td>112</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>04</td>
<td>Jim</td>
<td>US</td>
<td>142</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>
<table id="tbl2" border="2">
<thead>
<tr>
<th>First Name</th>
<th>Last Name</th>
<th>Phone</th>
<th>Remarks</th>
</tr>
</thead>
<tbody>
<tr>
<td>Julia</td>
<td>Anderson</td>
<td>2312144</td>
<td>Good</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Emma</td>
<td>Watson</td>
<td>24564456</td>
<td>Excellent</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Jim</td>
<td>Carry</td>
<td>5645648</td>
<td>Seperb</td>
</tr>
<tr>
<td>Harry</td>
<td>Potter</td>
<td>544562310</td>
<td>Ridiculous</td>
</tr>
</tbody>
</table>


this is script:

<script>
function generate() {
var doc = new jsPDF('p', 'pt', 'A4');

var res = doc.autoTableHtmlToJson(document.getElementById("tbl1"), true);
doc.autoTable(res.columns, res.data, {margin: {top: 80}});

var res2 = doc.autoTableHtmlToJson(document.getElementById("tbl2"), true);
doc.autoTable(res2.columns, res2.data, {margin: {top: 80}});

doc.save("test.pdf");

}
</script>

Answer

The second table is most likely printed on top of the first one. You would have to specify the start position of the second table like so:

var res = doc.autoTableHtmlToJson(document.getElementById('tbl1'));
doc.autoTable(res.columns, res.data);
var res2 = doc.autoTableHtmlToJson(document.getElementById('tbl2'));
doc.autoTable(res2.columns, res2.data, {
    startY: doc.autoTableEndPosY() + 50
});
