LaTeX for CoAD: Tables


Tables are handled like figures in that they are inserted within a specific environment {tabular}

A lot can be done with tables.  For more extensive documentation see: 

The basics:

\begin{tabular}{column specification}
Table Content

Column specification is how you want the content to be justified.

c = centered

r = right aligned

l = left aligned

So \begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|} would contain four columns of centered content.  

Rows are separated by & and end with \\.  First cell & Second cell & Third cell & Fourth cell \\

First cell & Second cell & Third cell & Fourth cell \\

Or you can use the LaTeX Table Generator, which will automatically produce that LaTeX code.
