How can I connect three tables just like on the picture below. What I have at this point is:

\begin{center}
    \begin{tabular}{ r | c | c | c | c | c | }
        \multicolumn{6}{ c }{Reduced data set D} \\
        \cline{2-6}
        & $A_{1}$ & $A_{2}$ & $\cdots$ & $A_{m}$ & Class \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $x_{1}$ & $a_{11}$ & $a_{12}$ & & $a_{1m}$ & $c_{1}$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $x_{2}$ & $a_{21}$ & $a_{22}$ & & $a_{2m}$ & $c_{2}$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $x_{n}$ & $a_{n1}$ & $a_{n2}$ & & $a_{nm}$ & $c_{n}$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
    \end{tabular}
    \begin{tabular}{ r | c | c | c | c | c | }
        \cline{2-6}
        & $A_{1}$ & $A_{2}$ & $\cdots$ & $A_{m}$ & Class \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $p_{1}$ & $a'_{11}$ & $a'_{12}$ & & $a'_{1m}$ & $c'_{1}$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $p_{2}$ & $a'_{21}$ & $a'_{22}$ & & $a'_{2m}$ & $c'_{2}$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        $p_{r}$ & $a'_{r1}$ & $a'_{r2}$ & & $a'_{rm}$ & $c'_{r}$ \\
        \cline{2-6}
        \multicolumn{6}{ c }{Prototype set P}
    \end{tabular}
\end{center}

  • You should consider using \tikzmark. That was you can separate the drawing elements from the tabualar content. Bascially, complete the tables and use \tikzmark to makr points in the table and then use an overlay to do the drawing compoent. Numerous examples on this site. Sep 10 '16 at 13:15

You can put your tables in tikz nodes, and then draw the lines, like this for example :

\documentclass[tikz,border=7mm]{standalone}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usetikzlibrary{calc, matrix, positioning}
\begin{document}

\begin{tikzpicture}
  \path
    (0,1) coordinate (A) node[above, inner sep=0] {
    \begin{tabular}{ r | c | c | c | c | c | }
          \multicolumn{6}{ c }{Reduced data set $D$} \\
          \cline{2-6}
          & $A_{1}$ & $A_{2}$ & $\cdots$ & $A_{m}$ & Class \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $x_{1}$ & $a_{11}$ & $a_{12}$ & & $a_{1m}$ & $c_{1}$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $x_{2}$ & $a_{21}$ & $a_{22}$ & & $a_{2m}$ & $c_{2}$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $x_{n}$ & $a_{n1}$ & $a_{n2}$ & & $a_{nm}$ & $c_{n}$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
      \end{tabular}
    }
    (0,-1) coordinate (B) node[below, inner sep=0] {
    \begin{tabular}{ r | c | c | c | c | c | }
          \cline{2-6}
          & $A_{1}$ & $A_{2}$ & $\cdots$ & $A_{m}$ & Class \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $p_{1}$ & $a'_{11}$ & $a'_{12}$ & & $a'_{1m}$ & $c'_{1}$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $p_{2}$ & $a'_{21}$ & $a'_{22}$ & & $a'_{2m}$ & $c'_{2}$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ & & $\vdots$ & $\vdots$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          $p_{r}$ & $a'_{r1}$ & $a'_{r2}$ & & $a'_{rm}$ & $c'_{r}$ \\
          \cline{2-6}
          \multicolumn{6}{ c }{Prototype set $P$}
      \end{tabular}
    }
    (5,0) coordinate (C) node[right, inner sep=0] {Put here the 3rd table};
  \draw[->] (A)--(B) (0,0) -- node[above]{$\hat{a}_{ij}=\operatorname{dist}(x_i,p_j)$}(C);
\end{tikzpicture}
\end{document}

  • I get an error: ! Undefined control sequence. \tikz@temp ...above]{$\hat {a}_{ij}=\operatorname {dist}(x_i,p_j)$} l.301 ...a}_{ij}=\operatorname{dist}(x_i,p_j)$}(C) ;

  • Nevermind, forgot to usepackage{amsmath}. Thanks for help
