For explaining an example in my paper, I need to have 6 tables and I need to make them as a package. I tried to make a table with small tabled indide in excel and then convert it with a tool to latex but output is not desirable.

Could you help me to maybe edit this and get my desirable output. I need to pack 6 5*5 tables so that the first row of each table includes two cells (last 4 cells are merged).

\begin{tabular}{ | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | l | }
\hline
     &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     & node's id & node's list &  &  &  &  & node's id & node's list &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 &  & 1 & 2 & 2 & 2 & 2 &  \\ \hline
     & 2 & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 &  & 3 & 2 & 2 & 2 & 2 &  \\ \hline
     & 3 & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 &  & 4 & 2 & 2 & 2 & 2 &  \\ \hline
     & 4 & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 &  & 5 & 2 & 2 & 2 & 2 &  \\ \hline
     & 5 & 1 & 1 & 1 & 1 &  &  &  &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     & node's id & node's list &  &  &  &  & node's id & node's list &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     & 2 & 3 & 3 & 3 & 3 &  & 1 & 4 & 4 & 4 & 4 &  \\ \hline
     & 3 & 3 & 3 & 3 & 3 &  & 2 & 4 & 4 & 4 & 4 &  \\ \hline
     & 4 & 3 & 3 & 3 & 3 &  & 3 & 4 & 4 & 4 & 4 &  \\ \hline
     & 5 & 3 & 3 & 3 & 3 &  & 5 & 4 & 4 & 4 & 4 &  \\ \hline
     &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     & node's id & node's list &  &  &  &  & node's id & node's list &  &  &  &  \\ \hline
     & 1 & 5 & 5 & 5 & 5 &  & 1 & 6 & 6 & 6 & 6 &  \\ \hline
     & 3 & 5 & 5 & 5 & 5 &  & 3 & 6 & 6 & 6 & 6 &  \\ \hline
     & 4 & 5 & 5 & 5 & 5 &  & 4 & 6 & 6 & 6 & 6 &  \\ \hline
     & 5 & 5 & 5 & 5 & 5 &  & 5 & 6 & 6 & 6 & 6 &  \\ \hline
\end{tabular}

  • You should read the booktabs manual for some advice on laying out professional quality tables. Or see LaRiFaRi's answer below.

You can put several tabulars in one table. For the line break just insert a blank line.

% arara: pdflatex

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{caption}

\begin{document}
\begin{table}
    \caption{6 tables}

        2.1 & 2.2 & 2.3 & 2.4 & 2.5\\

        4.1 & 4.2 & 4.3 & 4.4 & 4.5\\
        5.1 & 5.2 & 5.3 & 5.4 & 5.5\\

If you need captions for each tabular, please have a look on the package subcaption. You will have to wrap every tabular in a subfigure-environment then.

  • thanks but i am looking for 6 tables in 2 columns and each table with 5 columns and 5 rows. Also, in the first row of each table, I need to merge the last 4 cells. So that when you see it seems like 6 distinctive 5*5 tables. Commented Mar 9, 2015 at 9:23
