# Creating a table in LaTex with the following style

I'm new to LaTex, and would like to create a table that looks as follows:

How can this be done in LaTex?

Thanks.

If you only need a blank table, this can be the code:

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{|p{3cm}|p{1.5cm}|p{1.5cm}|p{1.5cm}|p{1.5cm}|}
\hline
& \multicolumn{2}{l|}{} & \multicolumn{2}{l|}{} \\
\hline
&&&& \\
\hline
&&&& \\
\hline
&&&& \\
\hline
&&&& \\
\hline
&&&& \\
\hline
&&&& \\
\hline
\end{tabular}

\end{document}

You can get cells that span two columns with the \multicolumn command, e.g., \multicolumn{2}{c}{Heading}. Vertical lines you put in the format, horizontal lines in the content:

\begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|l|l|}
\hline
r1c1 & \multicolumn{2}{c}{r1c2-3} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{r1c4-5} \\
\hline
etc.
\end{tabular}


However, before you go any further with this, I strongly advise you to read the introduction to the documentation for the booktabs package. It'll tell you how you should really lay out your table.
