I am so close to having this aligned properly, but the right-most cell is flush against the top rule whereas the left-most and center cells have a small amount of vertical space. I am trying to make the alignment uniform (either remove vertical space, or have it consistent across the row).

I've used \parbox{} to allow the multiline expression to be contained within, and horizontally aligned within, the table.

\begin{table}[h]
\caption{Title of Table.}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{p{1.4cm} p{6.9cm} p{6.8cm}} 
\toprule
Head1 & Head2 & Head3 \\
\midrule
text   & text text text text &  \parbox{6.8cm}{$BZ, CY, CX, BZ, BX, AY, AZ, \\ CY, CZ, \ldots$ } \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}

Also, in case this is important, I have the following in my preamble for APA-formatted tables.

\DeclareCaptionLabelSeparator*{spaced}{\\[2ex]}
\captionsetup[table]{textfont=it,format=plain,justification=justified,
  singlelinecheck=false,labelsep=spaced,skip=0pt}
\captionsetup[figure]{labelsep=period,labelfont=it,justification=justified,
  singlelinecheck=false,font=doublespacing}

  • Hi @jsbibra. Sorry, I should have tagged you in my previous comment. I should have included more text in the middle column, as the amount I need (pasted into your example) makes it run wider than the page. I tried using p{width} instead of l, c, h, but this seems to produce the undesired vertical space. – Guest1729 Sep 22 '20 at 1:06
  • I just did it the "hard way," without using mathematical expressions. – Guest1729 Sep 23 '20 at 20:13
  • ...care to share this "hard way" with others? – Werner Sep 23 '20 at 20:18

Note that a tabularx environment requires the use of an X-column in order to work properly. Without one, you might as well just use a regular tabular. Secondly, and what you're looking to change, a list of inline math elements are not breakable around ,. You'll have to change how that is managed by using content from (say) “Allowing line break at ',' in inline math mode” breaks citations:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{tabularx,booktabs}

% https://tex.stackexchange.com/a/19100/5764
\mathchardef\breakingcomma\mathcode`\,
{\catcode`,=\active
  \gdef,{\breakingcomma\discretionary{}{}{}}
}
\newcommand{\mathlist}[1]{\mathcode`\,=\string"8000 #1}

\begin{document}

\begin{table}
  \caption{Table caption}
  \begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{ p{14mm} p{69mm} X } 
    \toprule
    Head1 & Head2 & Head3 \\
    \midrule
    text & text text text text & $\mathlist{BZ, CY, CX, BZ, BX, AY, AZ, CY, CZ, \ldots}$ \\
    \bottomrule
  \end{tabularx}
\end{table}

\end{document}
