I would like to enclose a table with curly brackets. I photoshopped an example here: Table Curly Brackets

The MWE of the table is here, please feel free to add packages etc.

`

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[]
\centering
\scriptsize
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}
\begin{tabular}{p{3cm} p{0.7cm} p{8cm}}

$D_{1}~Value Proposition$ & D1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
$D_{2}~Value Proposition$ & D1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}

  • Welcome to tex.sx. You don't want to use the table environment here -- that's a "float", and can't be placed inside anything else. Just tabular should work, although to get the braces around it, it will need to be embedded in math (a display as you have shown) with \text{...} around the tabular block. Mar 3 '19 at 23:10
  • texdoc schemata, there are a example of use here

Something like this?

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsmath,array}
\usepackage[a4paper,left=2cm,right=2cm]{geometry}

\newcommand{\verysloppy}{\tolerance=2000 \hbadness=2000 \emergencystretch=\linewidth}

\begin{document}

\begin{equation*}
\mathrm{Taxonomy}_1=
\begin{Bmatrix}
\mbox{%
  \renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.3}%
  \footnotesize
  \begin{tabular}{@{} >{$}l<{$} l >{$}r<{{}$} @{} >{\verysloppy}p{8cm}@{}}
  D_{1} & Value Proposition & D_1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
  D_{2} & Value Proposition & D_2 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
  D_{3} & Value Proposition & D_3 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
  D_{4} & Value Proposition & D_4 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
  D_{5} & Value Proposition & D_5 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
  D_{6} & Value Proposition & D_6 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
  \end{tabular}%
}
\end{Bmatrix}
\end{equation*}

\end{document}

  • Great! Thank you. When I add the table to my document, it fits very nicely. But the right bracket is not aligned with my linewidth, it overshoots. Only the text is aligned correctly

  • @slandolt Reduce the size of the last column

Just place your tabular inside a math environment like \[\] and use \left\{ and \right\}:

\documentclass[11pt]{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}[!htb]
\centering
\scriptsize
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}

\[\left\{\begin{tabular}{p{3cm} p{0.7cm} p{8cm}}

$D_{1}~Value Proposition$ & D1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
$D_{2}~Value Proposition$ & D1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform, C1,9 Decision Support System,,C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database, C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
\end{tabular}\right\}\]
\end{table}

\end{document}

Edit: Added the \text{Taxonomy=} and broken manually the long lines.

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
\usepackage{lipsum}
\usepackage{amsmath}
\begin{document}

\lipsum[1]

\begingroup
\centering
\scriptsize
\renewcommand{\arraystretch}{1.5}

\[\text{Taxonomy=}\left\{\begin{tabular}{p{3cm} p{0.7cm} l}

$D_{1}$~\emph{Value Proposition} & D1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform,\\ &&C1,9 Decision Support System,,\\&&C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database,\\&& C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
$D_{2}$~\emph{Value Proposition} & D1 = & \{C1,7 Blockchain, C1,8 Digital Platform,\\ &&C1,9 Decision Support System,,\\&&C1,10 Marketplace, C1,11 Database,\\&& C1,12 Transaction Processing, System\} \\
\end{tabular}\right\}\]
\endgroup

\end{document}

  • Tank you very much! But am I able to add the "Taxonomy =" in a tabular environment?

  • See my edit but I think there are better ways too have what you want.
