How can I make a table without borders?

The default table doesn’t have any borders (see the LaTeX wikibook for a good introduction to tables). What exactly do you want to do? – Caramdir Oct 21 '10 at 20:23
I know the question is very, very basic. But please do not downvote just for that. (Or if you do please leave a reason for doing so) – Juan A. Navarro Oct 21 '10 at 20:34
I edited your question title to better reflect the question. Feel free to revert it if you wish. – TH. Oct 21 '10 at 21:47
It is worth your time to read the documentation for the booktabs package. It explains both the principles and practice behind making a good looking table. – TH. Oct 23 '10 at 2:59

A table without borders:

first row & & \\
second row & & \\
and & so & on \\

Thanks, very concise! I've understood that "{ccc}" means "center center center", and so i did a better "{ r c l }" – Abramo Oct 21 '10 at 22:17
"better" in this case is a matter of taste, I like {l l l } since it looks better... – Johan Oct 22 '10 at 5:29
