comment Align numbers and separated uncertainties in tables with S columns
But in my case I really have high uncertainties, so this would be 7.5(106) I think. From my experience this is not usual in my scientific field to give the uncertainties in that way. Further more I would like to be able to give uncertainties, which are not symmetric, something like +4/-2 which is not possible with the brackets. But you are right with the table format, something like S[table-format=2.1+-2.1] perhaps would be clearer. Is this an option?

@JosephWright What I would like to have is the ability to write something like S[table-format=2.1(2.1)] in this case. I don't really understand your comment. Is something wrong with is approach?

@ThorstenDonig The numbers are trends and resulting uncertainties of a linear linear regression. They are quite big, but they are uncertainties. However it doesn't help to answer my question. Or do you mean to give the uncertainties in a different way?

@cgnieder thank you. I didn't really understood table-format I think. For my question I would need something like 2.1(2.1) I think, but this doesn't work.
