Basic Tables

To create a basic table in LateX, use the following code:


\begin{tabular}{ l c r }
  1 & 2 & 3 \\
  4 & 5 & 6 \\
  7 & 8 & 9 \\

\end{tabular}

 
 \begin{tabular}{ l | c | r | }
  1 & 2 & 3 \\
  4 & 5 & 6 \\
  7 & 8 & 9 \\

\end{tabular}

 

\begin{tabular}{ | l | c | r | }
  \hline                       
  1 & 2 & 3 \\ \hline
  4 & 5 & 6 \\ \hline
  7 & 8 & 9 \\
  \hline  
\end{tabular
}

 

 

Note how you can add horizontal or vertical lines wherever you please, using the "|" character or using the "\hline" command.

  • You can add a column by changing "{l c r}" to "{l c c r}" at the beginning of your table.
  • You can add a row by simply entering another line of data below with the appropriate formatting.
