# How can I draw this table 1?

How can I draw the following table in LaTeX?

Can I add the itemize inside the table like the image below?

I tried this code:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{ | m{5em} | m{1cm}|  }
\hline
\rowcolor{gray!40}
\multicolumn{2}
{|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{\dimexpr5em+1cm+1cm+6\tabcolsep\relax}|}
{Very Long text here and centred}\\
\hline
\noalign{\vspace{1ex}}
\hline
Description & ong text bla bla bla bla bla bla   \\
\hline
Adition & long text bla bla bla bla bla bla bla bla  \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}

Your code example is not even close to what you like to obtain...

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\setlist[itemize]{nosep,
topsep= 0pt,
partopsep=0pt,
leftmargin= *,
label=\textendash,
before=\vspace{-0.6\baselineskip},
after=\vspace{-\baselineskip}
}
\bfseries
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{ | l | X | }
\hline
\multicolumn{2}{|>{\centering\arraybackslash}p{\dimexpr\linewidth-2\tabcolsep}|}{\cellcolor{gray!30}
Very long text here and centered
Very long text here and centered
Very long text here and centered}    \\
\hline
\multicolumn{2}{c}{}                    \\
\hline
Description &   \begin{itemize}
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\end{itemize}          \\
\hline
Addition    & long text bla bla bla bla long text bla bla bla bla\\
\hline
\end{tabularx}
\end{center}
\end{document}


In the case that there will be only one line text in the first table row, then you can do this row write as:

\multicolumn{2}{|c|}{\cellcolor{gray!30} Very long text here and centered}    \\


Edit: in the cases when you have more tables with lists in the cells, you can use macro \AtBeginEnvironment from the package etoolbox and move list setup from center or table float environment to document preamble:

\usepackage{etoolbox}
\AtBeginEnvironment{table}{%
\setlist[itemize,1]{nosep,
topsep     = 0pt,
partopsep  = 0pt,
leftmargin = *,
label      = \textendash,
before     = \vspace{-0.6\baselineskip},
after      = \vspace{-\baselineskip}
}  }


Addendum:

I would never get such a table for myself. I prefer something like this:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{booktabs, tabularx}
\usepackage[skip=1ex,labelfont=bf,justification=centerlast]{caption}
\usepackage{enumitem}
\usepackage{etoolbox}
\AtBeginEnvironment{table}{%
\setlist[itemize,1]{nosep,
topsep     = 0pt,
partopsep  = 0pt,
leftmargin = *,
label      = \textendash,
before     = \vspace{-0.6\baselineskip},
after      = \vspace{-\baselineskip}
}  }

\begin{document}
\begin{table}[htb]
\caption{Very long text here and centered
Very long text here and centered
Very long text here and centered}
\label{tab: my table}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{ l X }
\toprule
Description &   \begin{itemize}
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\item   long text bla bla bla bla
\end{itemize}          \\
\addlinespace
Addition    & long text bla bla bla bla long text bla bla bla bla\\
\bottomrule
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}
\end{document}

• one question please I already use itemize and when i add this code its disorder the itemize for my other work in document Apr 17, 2018 at 7:24
• @Jabir, corrected. its definition had to be "local", in the environment where the table is placed. Apr 17, 2018 at 7:26
• @Zarko: you should use a \textendash as a label for itemize, not a hyphen. Apr 17, 2018 at 10:41
• @Bernard, thank you for pointing this. i will correct asap. Apr 17, 2018 at 11:22
• @tex.stackexchange.com/questions/427064/… I'm interested of your answer would you see my question

The following reproduces the look of your table. You'll have to adjust the \dimexpr5em+1cm+1cm+6\tabcolsep\relax to match the width of your table. You'll need two \tabcolsep per column plus the width of each column.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
\begin{document}
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}{ | m{5em} | m{1cm}| m{1cm} | }
\hline
\rowcolor{gray!40}
\multicolumn{3}
{|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{\dimexpr5em+1cm+1cm+6\tabcolsep\relax}|}
{Very Long text here and centred}\\
\hline
\noalign{\vspace{1ex}}
\hline
cell1 dummy text dummy text dummy text& cell2 & cell3 \\
\hline
cell1 dummy text dummy text dummy text & cell5 & cell6 \\
\hline
cell7 & cell8 & cell9 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{center}
\end{document}


• yes but I would like to create the exact table in image thanks Apr 17, 2018 at 7:10
• @Jabir why do you give us an MWE with so little in common then? Your column counts don't match and the text is different, too. Apr 17, 2018 at 7:12
• I really appreciated your help Apr 17, 2018 at 7:20
• @Jabir if so say it with votes. Apr 17, 2018 at 7:22
• @Skillmon, so far op haven't rights to vote. instead of him/her i will do this :-) Apr 17, 2018 at 7:24
