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

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. – user2312186 Mar 9 '15 at 9:23
  • @user2312186 Can you put a picture of what you mean? – user11232 Mar 9 '15 at 13:28
  • @user2312186 See the update. Is that what you want? – user11232 Mar 10 '15 at 0:24
