Latex note#4 table formatting!

3 Jan

If you’re in need for really hardcore table formating, here’s one of the best guides (pdf).

The general stuff is failry easy and its been covered in the tutorial I’ve posted previously (of Andrew Robert’s page), but if you need:

  • rotating tables (use graphicx package)
  • placing footnotes in a table (beware! because \footnote does not comply in tabular enrironment until you use \makesavenoteenv{tabular})
  • adding colors to your rows/collums or single cells (see here in the Wiki Latex)
  • if you want to center the contents of a cell use \centering (sugested by this excelent guide (pdf))
  • and the ultimate… slashed boxes (which I needed desperatly! use \backslashbox inside \tabular,)

Hope it helps…
