Posting a Table

  1. Nov 13, 2006 #1
    Is there better way of building tables in a post.
    Even If you use Courier New font
    the spacing still compresses unless you insert White dots
    as shown here in Red.

    Row name......Col 1......Col 2....Column 3
    . Row 1... ... ..1 ..... ...2........ 3
    . Row 2.... ....A1........B 1..........C
    ...Row 3 .......X.........Y.......... Z

    [edit nov 14] Thanks for the heads-up on using an attachment
    and for the tip on using "code" - works much better

    I don't know of any easy way to put one into the body of the post, but you might find it faster to just upload an attachment if having a properly formatted table is that important to what you need to post. (In most of the forums here, attachments need moderator approval, so if you do that and we're really slow to notice it, send a PM to the mentor for the forum you're posting in to point it out.)

    Use [ code ] [ \code ] tags

    Code (Text):

    [u]Row name       Col 1       Col 2       Col 3[/u]
      Row 1          1           2           3
      Row 2          A1          B1          C1
      Row 3          X           Y           Z

    Thanks Gokul!

    I knew there had to be some pages missing from that used mentor's manual they gave me. :grumpy: Oh well, I've managed to sell it to berkman now. :biggrin:
