# Import and scale LaTeX table data from file (only ampersand stuff) [duplicate]

Is it possible to create a table and include only the pure data from an external file (only ampersand delimited stuff). Is it also possible to scale a table because data is vast and I don't want to keep on messing with table width and heights??

\begin{table}[H!]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{llllllll}
\input{stuff};
\end{tabular}
\caption{This is a caption}
\label{xxxx}
\end{table}


I want to import the data on the \input{stuff} part

• Use braces not parentheses. That is \input{stuff}. Aug 6 '14 at 15:25
• This question tex.stackexchange.com/questions/163246/… addresses the issue of rescaling tabular material to \textwidth. Aug 6 '14 at 15:26
• With braces (as edited), it should work just fine. Aug 6 '14 at 15:28
• Since the import problem is evidently solved, I vote to close as a duplicate of the scaling question linked above. Apr 19 '15 at 17:57
