I am trying to add a line to the top and bottom of a column in my table. Is there a specific command for that?

I tried using \cline but it only adds one line to the bottom.

  • Use \cline before and after? Please provide a minimal working example showing what you've got. Almost certainly, you should use booktabs rules rather than \cline anyway.

  • For booktabs, there's \toprule and \bottomrule (and \midrule).

See example. Also, use \hline for horizontal lines that span the tabular.




\lipsum[1] & 1 & \lipsum[2] & 2 & \lipsum[3]    \\
