im trying to create a table with a vertical line at the left and at the right, EXCEPT the top row shouldn't have the vetical lines. something like:

  A  B  C
| a  b  c |
| a  b  c |
| a  b  c |
| a  b  c |
| a  b  c |

I have this code:



& \multicolumn{2}{c}{P} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{E} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{D} \\

pond &10&&8&,9&6&,2\\

euro &11&,3&10&&7&,0\\

dollar&16&,2& 14&,3&10&\\


How to fix it so that it doesnt add a vertical line to the top row? thx in advance!

use \multicolumn{1}{c}{} for the first cell instead of leaving it empty
