I have a couple of tables in excel that i would put in my thesis. From this forum I learnt I could use excel2latex to export them into latex. Unfortunately when i tried, it is not working out as it should. The table goes over the page. I tried using p{with} but then latex complains with lot of errors. I have also tried save as Latex in Gnumeric with little success.

Am I missing something? Here is an example of the table in excel and the resulting output from excel2latxexcel table

excel2latex is afaik only able to use the standard column types like l,c,r you can manually modify the column type afterwards to p{length} columns or you can use tabularx and X columns that allow limiting of the table width to the available textwidth.
