# Two tables in two columns

I have following problem:

I have two tables..... Table one:

\begin{table}[h]
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
\hline
\textbf{A} & \textbf{B} \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}


Table two:

\begin{table}[h]
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
\hline
\textbf{C} & \textbf{D} \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}


How can I make two columns for this table (on my page)? Like this:

there is some text....
TABLE ONE | TABLE TWO
there is some text...


• Have you read of subcaption package and nested tabulars? Apr 14 '15 at 13:52
• Welcome to TeX.SX! You can have a look at our starter guide to familiarize yourself further with our format. As an aside, really consider not using so many lines and rules. Your data/ink ratio is suffering for it – it's visually cluttered. Apr 14 '15 at 13:53
• Could not agree more with @SeanAllred; tables should have at most one hline separating column headings from the contents. Whitespace does a fine job of separating the information, it looks more attractive, and saves that precious toner cartridge Apr 14 '15 at 13:57

You can put both the tabulars inside the same table environment:

\documentclass{Article}
\begin{document}
Some text here Some text here Some text here Some text here Some text here Some text here
\begin{table}[htb]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
\hline
\textbf{A} & \textbf{B} \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\vrule
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|}
\hline
\textbf{C} & \textbf{D} \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

Some more text to follow
\end{document}


The page can be split into minipages, for the lazy:

some text...

\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{tabular}{ c c }
...
\end{tabular}
\end{minipage}

\begin{minipage}{0.5\textwidth}
\begin{tabular}{ c c }
...
\end{tabular}
\end{minipage}

some more text...
