I am using the "begin minipage" to put two tables side by side, but the result is not perfect. As you can see from the output below, there are two things that I need to change:

  1. The outline of the table: is it possible to get a better visualization of the table?
  2. The caption: it is possible to get the caption outside the table?

Output:

Code:

\documentclass{beamer}

\mode<presentation> {
\usetheme{Madrid}
}
\usepackage{amsfonts}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage{siunitx}

\usepackage{subcaption}% <-- added
\usepackage[showframe]{geometry}
\usepackage{enumitem}   
\setlist[itemize]{nosep,
             leftmargin=*,
             label=\textbullet,
             after =\vspace{-\baselineskip},
             before=\vspace{-\baselineskip} 
             }
\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Appendix B}\framesubtitle{Tables}

\fboxsep=0pt
\noindent\fbox{%
\begin{minipage}[c]{0.40\linewidth}
        \begin{tabular}{c   c   c}
        \toprule
        \tabhead{Name1} &  \tabhead{Values} \\
        \midrule
         first       &  1 \\
         second      &  2 \\
         third       &  3 \\
         n-th         &  n \\
        \bottomrule
        \end{tabular}
        \captionof{table}{text}
\end{minipage}}%
\hfill%
\fbox{%
\begin{minipage}[c]{0.40\linewidth}
        \begin{tabular}{c   c   c}
        \toprule
        \tabhead{Name1} &  \tabhead{Values} \\
        \midrule
         first       &  1 \\
         second      &  2 \\
         third       &  3 \\
         n-th         &  n \\
        \bottomrule
        \end{tabular}
        \captionof{table}{text}
\end{minipage}
}

\end{frame}

  • ((i) what is purpose of \fbox? (ii) Your captions are outside of table but inside of frame ... (iii) where is defined \tabhead?

It is not clear what is your problem. Also is not defined tabhead, so I guess that you looking for something like this:

MWE, which produce above image is:

\documentclass{beamer}

\mode<presentation> {
\usetheme{Madrid}
}
\usepackage{capt-of}
\usepackage{tabularray}
\UseTblrLibrary{booktabs}

\begin{document}
\begin{frame}{Appendix B}\framesubtitle{Tables}
    \begin{center}
\begin{minipage}{0.30\linewidth}\centering
    \begin{tblr}{vline{1,Z},
                 cells={c},
                 row{1}={font=\bfseries}
                 }
    \toprule
Name1   &   Values  \\
    \midrule
first   &  1        \\
second  &  2        \\
third   &  3        \\
n-th    &  n        \\
    \bottomrule
    \end{tblr}
\captionof{table}{text}
\end{minipage}
    \hfil
\begin{minipage}{0.30\linewidth}\centering
    \begin{tblr}{vline{1,Z}, 
                 cells={c},
                 row{1}={font=\bfseries}
                 }
    \toprule
Name1   &   Values  \\
    \midrule
first   &  1        \\
second  &  2        \\
third   &  3        \\
n-th    &  n        \\
    \bottomrule
    \end{tblr}
\captionof{table}{text}
\end{minipage}
    \end{center}
\end{frame}

\end{document}

or maybe this:

for which in table specifications (tblr options) in above MWE you only need to replace vline{1,Z} by vlines.
