# Help for complicated table [closed]

Dear all, I badly need a help with this table. This is my first table in LaTeX and I sat about one day to manage it but now at the point I cant cope with it in a short time. Here's what i tried to do

\begin{table}
\centering\tlstyle
\begin{threeparttable}
\begin{tabular}{ |l|cc|cc|cc|cc|r| }
\hline
Metal&\multicolumn{4}{|c|}{Voltage, experiment   (V)} & Voltage, calculated (V)\\ \hline
Cu & 0.64-0.68 & (1,5,f) & 0.44 & (1,6,f) & 0.8 & (2,4,b) & 0.8 & (1,4,7,d) & 0.81\\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\begin{tablenotes}
\item\label{tnote:bridge-1}That is, $360^\circ$ vision, as proposed by Noddy Norris.
\item\label{tnote:bridge-2}As recommended by \emph{Robot Review}.
\item\label{tnote:bridge-3}That is, X-Ray vision, as proposed by \emph{Mechanical Maniacs}.
\end{tablenotes}
\end{threeparttable}
\caption{\label{tab:bridge}Total values of Jim's technological options for robot projects he thinks possible.}
\end{table}
\begin{tabular}{ |l|l|l| }

• Welcome to TeX.Stackexchange! If you show us what you managed to put together in this one day you worked on it, I'm sure we will be able to complete it. – user36296 Jul 17 '17 at 15:59
• Welcome to TeX.SX! We are not a do-it-for-me-service. If it's that urgent you can also try to make it in Word/LibreOffice/OpenOffice and use an online converter or try an online LaTeX table editor. – TeXnician Jul 17 '17 at 16:00
• Welcome to TeX.SX! Please help us help you and add a minimal working example (MWE) that illustrates your problem. Reproducing the problem and finding out what the issue is will be much easier when we see compilable code, starting with \documentclass{...} and ending with \end{document}. – CarLaTeX Jul 17 '17 at 16:29
• If you are in such a hurry, then I would recommend that you generate the table using Microsoft Excel or any similar software. Export it as a PDF or any other appropriate format (PNG for example) and then include it with \includegraphics and so on. – Dr. Manuel Kuehner Jul 17 '17 at 17:41
• We don't want your whole document, no. But nobody can compile your code as is. They have to add a class and then figure out which packages you might be using. A lot of the commands in your code are not part of standard LaTeX. Without their definitions (or the packages which define them) nobody can reproduce the problem. – cfr Jul 17 '17 at 18:58

Not the best looking table, but changing \multicolumn{4}{|c|}{Voltage, experiment (V)} to \multicolumn{8}{|c|}{Voltage, experiment (V)} solved most of the problems in your code.

Furthermore, to get linebreaks in Voltage, calculated (V), you could use a column of fixed with.

If you have some time, please have a look at https://www.inf.ethz.ch/personal/markusp/teaching/guides/guide-tables.pdf

• My heartfull thnx. – Make Jul 17 '17 at 18:04
• @Make You're welcome! Can you please undo your last edit to your question? if you suddenly start talking about goalkeepers nobody will ever be able to understand it. – user36296 Jul 17 '17 at 18:06
• :)) OK. Thnk u for the link – Make Jul 17 '17 at 18:07
• @Make As you can see from my screenshot, I get connected lines. If you get another result, please make a questions with a MWE that demonstrates the problem. We cannot read minds! – user36296 Jul 17 '17 at 19:30
• @Make You should always have enough reputation to edit YOUR own questions. – user36296 Jul 18 '17 at 8:20
