I am expected to prepare a time table in the format shown below:1 However, I am only able to generate this:2

Following is the code which I've with me:

\documentclass[a4paper,11pt,landscape]{book}
\usepackage[inner=0.3in,outer=0.3in,tmargin=1in,bmargin=1in]{geometry}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage{lmodern}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage[english]{babel}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{multirow}
\usepackage[table,xcdraw]{xcolor}

%\setlength{\arrayrulewidth}{1mm}
%\setlength{\tabcolsep}{18pt}

\begin{document}

\pagenumbering{gobble}
% Please add the following required packages to your document preamble:
% \usepackage{multirow}
% \usepackage[table,xcdraw]{xcolor}
% If you use beamer only pass "xcolor=table" option, i.e. \documentclass[xcolor=table]{beamer}
\begin{table}[]
\centering
%\caption{My caption}
\label{my-label}
\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|

Please suggest a solution.

  • You can use \arrayrulewidth=1pt (for example), and \rowcolor also affects \hline. Alternatively, you could redo the entire table using a tikz matrix. – John Kormylo Jul 10 '16 at 16:16
  • @JohnKormylo: I tried with \arrayrulewidth=1pt by uncommenting the line in the code given above. It didn't give desired results. – TRK Jul 10 '16 at 17:57

Here is a solution (hopefully). I introduced some shortcut-macros to shorten typing repetitive code.
