Why overfull in the following code? If I well understood, the tabular has space enough to fit the data.

enter image description here

siunitx expects the last column to contain a number with two digits in front and two after the decimal sign. It cannot know about the % sign.

  • That was fast! :) (and precise, +1) – gusbrs Apr 18 '18 at 13:22
  • @gusbrs With a clear question that includes a MWE it is easy to be fast, as everything was ready to copy and paste :) – user36296 Apr 18 '18 at 13:24
  • How could I discover this by myself? Maybe after reading the whole documentation. So simple solution, from experts. Thanks a lot. – Sigur Apr 18 '18 at 13:26
  • I have to wait 3 min to accept. What a waste of time. – Sigur Apr 18 '18 at 13:27
