Please see attached MWE and pdf. The problem seems to be with the column 'Test 1'? Any suggestions would be very much appreciated, I have tried altering each variable but I cannot work out where the problem is. Many thanks in advance.

The result with S[table-format = 2.1(2)] as column specification for the third columm:

  • I am still confused as to why in column 3 entitled 'test 1' the inputs read 2.3 (20) instead of 2.3 ± 2.0 for example? these inputs should look the same as for columns 4 and 5 – referencingstressesmeout Apr 11 '16 at 8:21
  • @referencingstressesmeout The options for the S column of the third column differs from the options of the S columns of the next four columns. BTW, there are seven column specifications, but only six columns are used. Maybe the third column specification is a left-over from previous trials and should be removed. – Heiko Oberdiek Apr 11 '16 at 15:51
