I want to make the table fit into one column in a two column page.

Also, I need it to look like this:

Here’s my code

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{adjustbox}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}[t]

The tabularx package is good to fit a tabular to a specified width. Here it’s the current \linewidth (→ Difference between \textwidth, \linewidth and \hsize).

I guessed that the two most left columns should be twice as wide as the other ones. According to this I have set \hsize. (The sum of all \hsize still have to be the number of X columns.)

I have also reduced the horizontal space between columns:

\setlength{\tabcolsep}{.3\tabcolsep}

With the \cline{2-10} you can specify a \hline that only goes from the second to the tenth column.

Code

\documentclass[twocolumn]{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\newcolumntype{F}{>{\bfseries}c}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}[t]

  • The tabularx documentation states: “Do not use \multicolumn entries which cross any X column.” Huh … Commented Mar 12, 2013 at 7:15
  • can this be done? As I need it urgently please? dropbox.com/s/you1jfe9qmj01wa/RULAv04%20Revised.xls ???

  • @Qrrbrbirlbel Following the rules ensures nothing bad happens and tabularx always converges to a more or less reasonable width, if you break the rules then usually you are OK, but documenting exactly when things might go wrong is too hard. Commented Apr 8, 2013 at 16:01
  • @DavidCarlisle Thanks for your late comment. I guess, I am going to cross my fingers when working with tables … Commented Apr 8, 2013 at 21:54
