Guys, I am one the process of mastering LaTeX, so that later when times come I shall be fully prepared to typeset almost anything without thinking twice. So during this awesome process, I am now encountering this tables on LaTeX. And they say that tables are the most boring, bad and worst aspect of the modern TeX-LaTeX.To quote-
However, if there is one area about LaTeX that I feel is the least intuitive, then I am afraid that this is tables.
So, after having read this statement from LaTeX wiki books, I stopped learning manually to type codes for LaTeX. I found the automated process of generating table codes for LaTeX from a Excel Add-in(Excel2LaTeX) and especially the LaTable by Alex Denisov are perfect for making tables. I tried some variations of tables and they seems to work perfectly and largely faster than the manual process anyway.
Real Question: Should I learn to manually code any types of tables, that needs to be made OR Should I just skip this part as automated process is perfect and go on to explorer other areas of LaTeX. So all LaTeX Guru's out there, What do you suggest ? I am in an dilemma. Don't know what to do. Suggestion of any kind will be truly appreciated. ;)
