Using table in latex

Tue Jul 31, 2012 12:01 pm

Add tables using latex is done using table tags, is very easy , following is a simple example for adding a table:


Code:
\begin{table}
\centering

\begin{tabular}{lcccc}
\hline
\textbf{Type} & \textbf{Prop1} & \textbf{Prop2} & \textbf{Prop3} \\
\hline
\textbf{class1} & X &  Y & Z \\
\textbf{class2} & X &  Y & Z    \\
\textbf{class3} & X &  Y &  Z    \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{Add your table caption here }
\label{tab:LabelRef}
\end{table}



To add border to this table you will change the following part:

Code:
\begin{tabular}{lcccc}


into this part :

Code:
\begin{tabular}{|l|c|c|c|c|}


There are some cases you may need to change the size of the table while keeping the number of columns and rows as it is, in such case you use the \resizebox tag which takes one parameter:
Code:
\begin{table}
\centering
\resizebox{14cm}{!}{
\begin{tabular}{|l|c|c|c|c|}
\hline
\textbf{class1} & X &  Y & Z \\
\textbf{class2} & X &  Y & Z    \\
\textbf{class3} & X &  Y &  Z    \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
}
\caption{Add your table caption here }
\label{tab:tableRef}
\end{table}
