# In table, how to make one column has different font size for different line?

I use longtabu to create a table, below is the realted code

\begin{longtabu} to \textwidth {|>{\footnotesize}X[1 , p ] |>{\footnotesize}X[1 , p ] | >{\footnotesize}X[1 , p ]|}


I want the first line of the table (table head) to be footnotesize, and I need one column with tiny font size, but if i change footnotesize to tiny, all lines in that column become tiny, the first line should be footnotesize. How to do it?

• you can just start your heading cells with \footnotesize – David Carlisle Aug 25 '14 at 15:15
• Please always post the code for a complete, small document demonstrating your issue (Minimum Working Example). This is much more useful than mere fragments of code! – cfr Aug 25 '14 at 15:19
• @DavidCarlisle, THANKS! what a small change but big difference – postit Aug 26 '14 at 8:24

As noted in comments you can specify the default font for a column using the > syntax but override the font for heading or any other cells by starting the cell with a command such as \footnotesize.
