@Jossie Your actual problem isn't clear though; for all we know, you could have wanted vertical dots, dots that slanted, any number of things. Next time, you really need to be specific about the problem you're having. – Sean Allred Nov 27 '13 at 23:17
Sorry @Sean. I'll keep that in mind; I however wonder if that is a red herring in regards to this problem...:) – Jossie Nov 27 '13 at 23:17

Your issue is you haven't defined all the columns you want in the tabular environment. \begin{tabular}{ccc} only defines a table with 3 columns; add another c.
