I am trying to create a table using LaTeX, but it is not working properly. Some problems are: It is overflowing on the next page, the text is scattered and the alignment is bad. I also want to add more text in the column name idea.

Please find the code given below.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}

\begin{tabular}{|p{0.4cm}||p{2cm}|p{2cm}|p{2cm}| p{2cm}|p{2cm}|p{2cm}|}

 \hline

 \multicolumn{7}{|c|}{\textbf{Data Structures}} \\

 \hline

 \textbf{No} & \textbf{Sigma name and all}  & \textbf{Idea}& \textbf{Construct Time(Runtime Time)} & \textbf{Construct Time (Space)} & \textbf{Searching data (Query)} & \textbf{Search head (Space)}\\
 \hline

 1  & ABCD    &  These algorithms achieve performance better than the classic &   O(NLkt) & O(nL)&O(L(kt + dnp)&O(1)\\ \hline

 2&   FGH  & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces & $O(dn \log n)$ & $O(dn)$ &222& $O(1)$\\ \hline

 3&LMPQ & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces &  008 & 666 & 242&333\\ \hline

 4    & RSTV & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces &  012 & 888 & 333&55\\ \hline

 5&   ZMNQ & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces &016 & 888 & 444&343\\ \hline

 6& WORP  & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces and MBR   &020 &555 & 444&333\\ \hline

 7& MNPO  & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces. Search based on data pruning and the radius of nodes.&024 & 888 &224&342\\ \hline
 \hline

\end{tabular}

\end{center}

    Not everything that fits in software tables (like excel, where sliders etc. are) will fit on the paper.

  • See tex.stackexchange.com/questions/332902/… (your question is duplicate to it). You should tell us, if you can change page layout, can table be rotated to landscape , minimal allowed font size, can column headers be shortened, etc.

One possible solution:

  • wider \textwidth determined by use of the geometry package
  • footnotesize font size
  • different widths of columns
  • use of the tabularray package
\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{tabularray}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
    \footnotesize
\begin{tblr}{hlines, vlines,
             colspec = {c X[0.5, c] X[2.2, j] *{4}{X[0.7, c]}},
             colsep = 3pt,
             row{1,2} = {font=\bfseries, c, m}
             } 
\SetCell[c=7]{c}    Data Structures
        &       &       &       &       &       &                       \\

                                & Construct Time (Space)
                                        & Searching data (Query)
                                                & Search head (Space)   \\
 1  & ABCD      &  These algorithms achieve performance better than the classic 
                        & O(NLkt) 
                                & O(nL) & O(L(kt + dnp)
                                                & O(1)                   \\ 
 2  & FGH       & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces 
                        & $O(dn \log n)$
                                & $O(dn)$
                                        & 222   & $O(1)$                \\

 3  & LMPQ      & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces
                        & 008   & 666   & 242   & 333                   \\  
 4    & RSTV    & is an algorithm for solving the approximate or exact Near Neighbor Search in high dimensional spaces 
                        &  012  & 888   & 333   & 55                    \\

                        & 016   & 888   & 444   & 343                   \\

Addendum: Yes, this table can be set on classical way, which can be compiled also on Overleaf. Code as well result are lef elegant, but solution works:


\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage{microtype}
\usepackage{ragged2e}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\newcolumntype{C}[1]{>{\hsize=#1\hsize\linewidth=\hsize%
                       \Centering}X}
\newcolumntype{L}[1]{>{\hsize=#1\hsize\linewidth=\hsize%
                       \RaggedRight\hspace{0pt}}X}

\begin{document}

\begin{center}
    \footnotesize

  • Thanks Zarko! The content in the idea column is covered by black strip. How to remove it?

  • @Shi, in my answer hasn't black strip ;-). How you compile my MWE? Do you use Overleaf? Overleaf has installed (to) old tabularray version which may make troubles.

  • @Shi do you mean a black strip to the right of that column? Might be an overfull-rule, do you compile using the draft option, or with \overfullrule > 0pt?

  • I am using overleaf

  • @Skillmon Yes black strip
