# Tables in latex?

I used a table generator site http://www.tablesgenerator.com/ to create this latex code, but it doesn't work in a thread when I paste it in between dollar dollar delimiters.

$$\begin{table}[] \centering \caption{My caption} \label{my-label} \begin{tabular}{ll} 1 & TW base \\ 1 & TW reserves \\ 2 & TW total \\ 3 & \/watt utility \\ 6 & \/watt rooftop \\ 6.5 & \trillion storage \\ \14 & \trillion total \end{tabular} \end{table}$$

Have you tried two hashes instead of two dollars?

Here it is with hashes.

$\begin{table}[] \centering \caption{My caption} \label{my-label} \begin{tabular}{ll} 1 & TW base \\ 1 & TW reserves \\ 2 & TW total \\ 3 & \/watt utility \\ 6 & \/watt rooftop \\ 6.5 & \trillion storage \\ \14 & \trillion total \end{tabular} \end{table}$

apparently, Tabular is not implemented in Mathjax.

Darn. Is there any way to get tables into a PF post?

Maybe html?

Use
Code (Text):

\ begin{array}{ll}

\ end{array}

(With no space after \, I put it their because it becomes invisible when I write it the correct way!)

Yes, thank you @Shyan That got me closer, now I'll try to get rid of centering the cells.

$\begin{array}{7} 1 & TW base \\ 1 & TW reserves \\ 2 & TW total \\ 3 & \/watt utility \\ 6 & \/watt rooftop \\ 6.5 & \trillion storage \\ \14 & \trillion total \end{array}$

\begin{array}{ll} 1 & TWbase \\ 1 & TWreserves \\ 2 & TWtotal \\ 3 & \$wattutility \\ 6 & \$wattrooftop \\ 6.5 & \$trillionstorage \\ 14 & \$trilliontotal \end{array}

Do you exactly write \ begin{array}{ll} ? The second l is supposed to align the text to the left!

P.S.
