I'm having issues with this table and can't find the problem. I'm including all the packages I'm using for customizing the table:

\usepackage{spreadtab}
\usepackage{arydshln} % For the dotted line on the table
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5} % Apply vertical padding to table cells
\usepackage{hhline} % For single-cell borders
\newcounter{pos}
\setcounter{pos}{0}

\begin{spreadtab}{{tabular}[t t t]{lp{8.2cm}r}}
  \hdashline[1pt/1pt]
  \STtextcell \textbf{Pos.} & \STtextcell \textbf{Leistung/Beschreibung} & \STtextcell \textbf{Preise in EUR} \\ \hline
  \STtextcell \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & \STtextcell Die erste Leistung  & 750.0 \\
  \STtextcell \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & \STtextcell Die zweite Leistung & 180.0 \\
  \STtextcell \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & \STtextcell Die dritte Leistung & 55.0  \\
  \STtextcell \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & \STtextcell Die fierte Leistung & 55.0 \\ \hline
  \STtextcell & \STtextcell \multicolumn{1}{r}{\textbf{Rechnungsbetrag:}}   & \textbf{sum(c1:c4)} \\ \hhline{~~-}
\end{spreadtab}

I'm getting the following error: Paragraph ended before \ST@left@ii was complete. Can anyone see what I'm doing wrong? Any help would be much appreciated.

    Replace \STtextcell by @ and change \textbf{sum(c1:c4)} into \textbf{:={sum(c1:c4)}}

  • That worked, thanks. If you post your suggestion as an answer I will accept it.

  • Anyway, I thought @ and \STtextcell were equivalent, but it doesn't work using \STtextcell.

Replace \STtextcell by @. By redefining \STtextcell you can change the marker for text cells but you can't use \STtextcell directly.

Also change \textbf{sum(c1:c4)} into \textbf{:={sum(c2:c5)}}. This is explained in the manual in the section about mixed cells where \textbf is actually shown as an example:

Note that ‘:={numeric field}’ may be inside brackets, whatever be the level of nesting. For example, if a cell contains \textbf{:={a1+1}} and if the numeric value of the cell a1 is 5, then finally, the cell will contain \textbf{6}

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}

\usepackage{spreadtab,array}
\usepackage{arydshln}
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}
\usepackage{hhline}
\newcounter{pos}

\begin{document}

\STautoround*{2}
\STsetdecimalsep{,}
\begin{spreadtab}{{tabular}[t t t]{lp{8.2cm}r}}
  \hdashline[1pt/1pt]
  @ \textbf{Pos.} &
  @ \textbf{Leistung/Beschreibung} &
  @ \textbf{Preise in EUR} \\ \hline
  @ \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & @ Die erste Leistung   & 750.0 \\
  @ \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & @ Die zweite Leistung  & 180.0 \\
  @ \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & @ Die dritte Leistung  & 55.0  \\
  @ \refstepcounter{pos} \thepos & @ Die vierte Leistung  & 55.0 \\
  \hline
  @ &
  @ \multicolumn{1}{r}{\textbf{Rechnungsbetrag:}} &
  \textbf{:={sum(c2:c5)}}
  \\ \hhline{~~-}
\end{spreadtab}

\end{document}

  • The \hdashline gives me ! Paragraph ended before \ST@left@ii was complete.. Without the \hdashline, the error is TeX capacity exceeded, sorry [parameter stack size=20000]. I'm freaking out. Spending hours on a stupid table. Commented Dec 8, 2023 at 15:38
