# Introducing a controllable space in a table

How can I introduce some vertical spaces in the table before the headers in Latex. The method I use below has introduced a gap, but the gap is too big. How can I have a more controllable vertical gap?

\begin{table}
\begin{tabular*}{0.95\columnwidth}{l|l}
\hline
Parameters & ~ \\ \hline
\rule{0pt}{3pt} & ~ \\

~ & ~ \\
\hline
\end{tabular*}
\caption{}
\label{Tbl:X}
\end{table}

See the answer to Column padding in tables for different ways of padding rows/columns with whitespace. –  Werner May 29 '12 at 16:00
