I want my table to have separated cells. Basically double lines but I can't figure how to have horizontal lines disconnected. I tried \hline and \cline but those connect too.

This is best I can do:

This is how I want my table to look: enter image description here

\begin{tabular}{|c||c||c||c|}
  \hline
  \multicolumn{2}{|c||}{First Cell}&
  Second Cell&
  Third Cell\\
  \hline
  \hline
  \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}} Data\\ Data\\ Data\\
  \end{tabular}&
  \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}}
    Data\\
    Data\\
    Data\\
  \end{tabular}&
  \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}}
    Data\\
    Data\\
    Data\\
  \end{tabular}&
  \begin{tabular}{@{}l@{}}
    Data\\
    Data\\
    Data\\
  \end{tabular}\\

  \hline

\end{tabular}

  • I also tried putting every cell in its nested tabular environement but that way it messes up spaceing between cells of primary table – ssekav Mar 2 '16 at 13:10

You can achieve this with the hhline package:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{hhline}
