@HarishKumar +1 for the example. It does almost all of the things I wanted to do, and I can probably work from what you have provided. BTW rgb.tex is a file which contains color definitions using the RGB pallete.

please ignore question about the Lorem Ipsum text. I just noticed the \lipsum control sequences.

I forgot to ask you about what I found most bewildering - where is the lorem Ipsum text coming from? (its not in the snippet you pasted) - how do I replace that with my own text?. Last but not the least, I would like to stick a little 'Report generated on YYYYMMDD' on the bottom right handside in the footer of the report. Could you please modify the snipet to show how this can be done?. BTW, thanks (again) for the comments in your snippet. I am learning and understanding a great deal from your snippet. +1 from me.

Mike: I have installed the complete tex package for Ubuntu, and I am now able to create the document - I am elated!. I have a few further quick questions: 1. If I want to bolden the numbers in the 'Power' column, how do I do that? 2. After some deliberation, I think its better to create an image from the pdf, so that I can be sure that the report fits into an A4 page in the publication. Do I replace the article class as suggested here: [tex.stackexchange.com/questions/11866/…?

Thank you, thank you, thank you!. This is EXACTLY the kind of table I am trying to create. It even looks better than the one in the image I attached. I am going to study your snippet and use it as a starting point. I tried creating a pdf friom the snippet, but run into some probs with packages I dont have. I will read up on the links you provided and try to see if I can get it to work. Thanks once again.

comment Getting started with TeX - my first table (a nested table)
@rdhs: What are the alternatives for creating a table? (like I said, I'm new to this - so this may indeed, not be the best approach, although my preliminary research seems to indicate otherwise). I need to dynamically generate this table for a publication. I saw Sweave some time back, but it was not intuitive. I am working with Python mostly (as far as scripting languages go), and I wanted to dynamically generate the LaTeX string for the document (populated with the data). It will be a lot faster for me to do this than to learn Sweave.
