# Error in tables when compiling project using Texstudio/Miktex

I am a beginner with LaTeX. I am using TeX studio with MikTeX, on windows 7 x64.

I am trying to build some tables on my paper. I used existing papers from another paper as a sort of "template". However, when I try to compile the projet, after I edit the template table, I am getting the same set of errors for all the tables in my paper. The 4 errors, as well as my code, are shown in the attachment. Sorry, but I still can't format my posts correctly here.

Do you know the cause of these errors and how to fix them?

I attach a .txt file with a minimal sample of the code, with "something goes here" instead of the original text.

Sorry for uncompliance with the rules. I am very new in the TeX forum of Stackexchange.

Best regards, KingBaboon

Minimal working code:

\documentclass[review]{elsarticle}

\usepackage{lineno.hyperref}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{graphicx}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{inputenc}
\modulolinenumbers[5]

\journal{Something goes here}

• 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}. Don't post an image of your erors / code as this is hard to reproduce (people don't like to retype)/ • Note this is a Q&A site, not a please do this for me service. What do you have so far.

• % has special meaning (for comment) in latex source code. Use \% instead. Dec 11 '18 at 19:11

your mwe has many issue:

• the graphicx package is already load by elsarticle
• the hyperref had to be loaded last in preamble (with rare exception, which is not present)
• \begin{frontmatter} is not closed with end{frontmatter}
• last column type is not properly typed (instead ddd ($%$) had to be ddd ($\%$) or simply ddd (\%))
• in table environment is sufficient to use cantering, so also use\begin{center} ... \end{center} is superfluous

correcting this, the result is as expected:

\documentclass[review,demo]{elsarticle}
\usepackage[utf8]{inputenc}
%\usepackage[demo]{graphicx} % loaded by elsarticle
\usepackage{amsmath}
\usepackage{longtable}
\usepackage{lineno,hyperref}
\modulolinenumbers[5]
\journal{Something goes here}

\bibliographystyle{elsarticle-num}

\begin{document}
%\begin{frontmatter}    % it is not used in mwe
