This might be a proper question for community wiki. How can various text processor (like Word or Writer) table capabilities be achieved using LaTeX? I need to copy a table from a pdf file to my LaTeX document. I know I have to do it by hand but still don’t understand how to create a table with LaTeX. The TeX macro for horizontal alignment (ie, tables) is less easy to use than the LaTeX tabular environment, but it is correspondingly more powerful. It can also save you a lot of work because things that have to be put into every cell of a given table column (eg font settings or mathematical mode) need to be specified only once.
The examples provided are very basic. Drop me a comment below in case you are having problems with a more complex table. Also, the color is just for illustration purposes and for simplicity reasons not part of the minimal working examples above. The following symbols are available to describe the table columns:. So instead of reproducing it within the page, go directly to the example LaTeX file, wrapped.tex and then view the output. This mode is based on Michael Wichura’s TaBlE package for PlainTeX.
I was asked to give an introduction to tables in LaTeX. Even though there are plenty of tutorials and pieces of LaTeX-code out there in the internet, it might still be useful to somebody who just started using Latex or has never used tables before. Tex-Mex gets a bad rap from certain self-described purists. It’s blamed for all the lousy Mexican fast food chains. People say that it’s just bastardized northern Mexico food with too much of everything from sour cream and cheese to chiles and tomatoes. Tables should be prepared using the table environment, following the examples given below. Detailed examples of TEX code for tables are provided here for simple A&A tables and here for tables longer than one page.

You can also specify which ranges of your Excel workbook you want to convert into LaTeX, and convert them all at once as individual.tex files.
