i have the following content and my compiler gives me this error messages:

! Missing number, treated as zero.
! Illegal unit of measure (pt inserted). 
! Package calc Error: `c' invalid at this point.
! Package array Error: Illegal pream-token (V): `c' used.
! Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr.

Here is the code:

\usepackage{tabularx}           %for nicer tables


\begin{document}
...

\begin{table}[H]
\caption{Berechnete Konzentrationen der Proteinprobe.}
\label{tab:Protein}
\begin{tabularx}{cccccc}
Verd. & $\upsigma$\textsubscript{korr.} & $\upbeta$ / $\upmu$g/ml & +/- & $\Delta$ $\upbeta$ / $\upmu$g/ml & rel. Fehler / \%\tabularnewline
\hline 
1:20 & 0.0182 & 958.79 & +/- & 113.39 & 11.83\tabularnewline
1:50 & 0.0038 & 1151.56 & +/- & 153.83 & 13.36\tabularnewline
1:100 & 0.0113 & 1405.68 & +/- & 331.68 & 23.60\tabularnewline
1:250 & 0.0581 & 2323.72 & +/- & 2727.75 & 117.39\tabularnewline
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}

\end{document}

The whole thing works with "tabular" but i want the whole bandwidth.

Any ideas?

here are ALL the packages i used

You are missing the information how wide the table should be:

\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{XXXXXX}

I used \textwidth to define the width - you also can use 80mm for example or 0.75\textwidth.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage[showframe=true]{geometry}
\usepackage{float}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[H]
\caption{Some Caption in German}
\label{tab:Protein}
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{XXXXXX}
Verd. & $\sigma$\textsubscript{korr.} & $\beta$ / $\mu$g/ml & +/- & $\Delta$ $\beta$ / $\mu$g/ml & rel. Fehler / \%\tabularnewline
\hline 
1:20 & 0.0182 & 958.79 & +/- & 113.39 & 11.83\tabularnewline
1:50 & 0.0038 & 1151.56 & +/- & 153.83 & 13.36\tabularnewline
1:100 & 0.0113 & 1405.68 & +/- & 331.68 & 23.60\tabularnewline
1:250 & 0.0581 & 2323.72 & +/- & 2727.75 & 117.39\tabularnewline
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}

\end{document}

  • Your code is missing a document class.
  • Your code uses the [H] option but doesn't provide the float package (leads to an error).
  • Your code uses some \up... math commands that are not supported by the packages you use in your code (leads to an error).
  • I added the geometry package with the showframe=true option in order to show that the table uses the whole \textwidth.

  • 1
    At least one column should be based on the X column type, right?
