I am very very very new to LaTeX, like I just started understanding what is does yesterday. I am using Stata 15 and wanted to make nice tables.

There is a problem with the code below. I keep getting the error message:

159: Extra alignment tab has been changed to \cr.
<template> \endtemplate 
l.159 \end{tabularx}

Also, How can I get this all on one page? All and any help is much appreicated.

MY CODE:

    I would never use tabularx for tables of figures (and I wrote it) it is designed to control line breaking of paragraphs of text within tables, and you have no such entries. Apr 27 '19 at 20:06
  • Thank you both for your comments. I'm so grateful. I have been looking online and trying to teach myself from examples but its not going so well...I'm using Stata's command tabout to create a tex file which i then typeset in TeXShop. David, if I do not use tabularx to create a table then can you please suggest what I should be doing and maybe an example I can follow?

as i mentioned in my comment, your table has more issues as mentioned error (which is solved by my comment):

  • table is to huge that can be fit on one page, actually it is long two and half page, so you need longtable or ltablex packages for it
  • rows are not consistent typed; also in case if you have except the first column all other empty, you should always typed all ampersands which define columns
  • for numbers in i would use S column type

The first row had a wrong number for one of the \multicolumn. Anyway, you declared 7 coluns and were using 5, so I reduces their number. I set the 1st column as X type, and used the S column type for the 4 last columns, to align the numbers by the decimal dot. Also, I added some vertical padding between groups of rows. Last, as the table cannot fit on one page, I loaded ltables which brings the advantages of longtable to tabularx. Note that we don't need the center environment: by default, longtables are centred.

  • Thank you very much, Bernard! I like this table a lot. Can you please explain, what is the (1) at the top of the table associated with? And is it possible to remove it or replace with different text?
    – BRB
    Apr 27 '19 at 21:21
  • Also, when I try the code on my computer the column headers are centered in the middle of the table instead of over the data. How can I fix this? Thank you
    – BRB
    Apr 27 '19 at 21:30
  • The $(1)$ was in your code. As I didn't know what it corresponded to, I didn't touch it. In \multicolumn{1}{c}{(1)} you can replace it with whatever you want.
    – Bernard
    Apr 27 '19 at 21:32
  • Do you mean you don't obtain the same alignment for the column headers?
    – Bernard
    Apr 27 '19 at 21:34
  • That is correct. The alignment was centered on the entire table. In your helpful example, it was aligned over the 4 columns of the corresponding data.

You have some issues in your given code, for example:

  1. Use longtable instead tabularx here. longtable can span pages, tabularx not.
  2. In your table you are only using 5 columns, so I reduced it to {@{} ldddd @{}}
  3. longtable needs no center, I deleted it.
  4. to format the numbers in the table I used dcolumn with \newcolumntype{d}{D{.}{.}{2}}
  5. I added the missing & to mark the empty columns in your part header lines like \emph{Mott Haven/Hunts Point} & & & & \\.
  6. I deleted the wrong &\multicolumn{4}{c}{(1)} & \multicolumn{4}{c}{} \\ because you have only 5 columns and not 9 as you tried to use in this line ...

Here is my suggestion. I have replaced tabularx by longtable as you a) don't need automatic line breaks of paragraphs and b) have a table that is a lot longer than a single page. Additionally, I have used the caption comand for the caption (and used the caption package in order to control the font of the caption). Lastly, I have also added the missing two columns. If you don't need more columns, you can replace \begin{longtable}{@{} l rrrrrrrr@{}} by \begin{longtable}{@{} l rrrr@{}} and &\multicolumn{4}{c}{(1)} & \multicolumn{4}{c}{} \\ by &\multicolumn{4}{c}{(1)}\\. I have also replaced km2 by \squarekilometre from the siunitx package.

Here is a suggestion on how one could redesign the table. I have removed the repeated information in the first column and combined two rows to one. Additionally, I have used S type columns from the siunitx package in order to align the numbers relative to their decimal separator.

  • Another thought is to change how I'm displaying this information. Following Tufte's suggestion to provide a lot of information I choose this format but maybe you all have another suggestion. I could create 3 separate tables that each show only one type of food chance category. Would that be better?

  • @BRB: How you should present your data heavily depends on how you want to discuss them. I have however edited my answer to also include a suggestion how you could reduce the amount of text in the first column.

  • Thank you for helping rethink the structure. I have been trying to add the header "Food Chances by Neighborhood" above the column of Mott Haven...but keep failing. What am I doing wrong? \multicolumn{8}{@{}l}{Food Chances by Neighborhood} \\ & \multicolumn{2}{c}{Mean} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{Std. Dev.} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{Min} & \multicolumn{2}{c}{Max} \\ \cmidrule(lr){2-3} \cmidrule(lr){4-5} \cmidrule(lr){6-7} \cmidrule(lr){8-9} & {total} & {per \squarekilometre} & {total} & {per \squarekilometre} & {total} & {per \squarekilometre} & {total} & {per \squarekilometre}\\
