# Posting a table

## Recommended Posts

Searching doesn't find any useful help on this so how do I post a table here please?

##### Share on other sites

Unsure what type of table you mean.

If I cannot attach something within the "more reply options" from my files/pictures, I WILL CUT AND PASTE IT TO THE FREE PAINT NET V3.5.11 , save then attach this in more reply options.

There are BB codes for tables, though I haven't used them and can't say if they meet your needs. Scroll down at this link: >> Science Forums BB codes

Thank you Acme I see them, can someone tell my how to post a 2 column x 6 row table and how to enter the data?

You're welcome. I'll try a little experimenting here if it's OK and maybe we can get it fingered out. Will start by posting the examples given and see what that gets us.

This:

[ta=left]
[tr]
[td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td]
[/tr]
[/ta]
Gives this:

Hithere

This:

 [ta=left][tr][td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td] [/tr]
[tr][td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]Hi[/td][td]there[/td][/tr][/ta]
Gives this:

 Hi there

Hithere

Hithere

Hithere

Hithere

Hithere

I get a scrambled page when I open it. ?? Try copying the last code I gave and replace the 'Hi' & 'There' in each column and row with your data.

[tr][td]100[/td][td]1.01010[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]1000[/td][td]1.00100[/td][/tr][/ta]

Well thanks for trying anyway.

I haven't tried figuring out the Table Heading code, but here is what I get substituting your data.

[ta=left][tr][td]n/(n-1)[/td][td]-[/td] [/tr]
[tr][td]2[/td][td]2.0[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]5[/td][td]1.25[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]10[/td][td]1.11111[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]100[/td][td]1.01010[/td][/tr]
[tr][td]1000[/td][td]1.00100[/td][/tr][/ta]

So what did you do that I didn't?

I didn't include the table titles 'Number in sample,' and 'Bessel’s Correction' inside the BB code tags.

Odd. Copying and pasting your post gives me:

1001.01010

10001.00100

Perhaps you need to flick the toggle switch upper-left of the edit box before you paste?

Test2 flick toggle switch before posting.
This time I copied the table in white under your code box.
Last time I copied the code box.

I suppose you could use matrices:

$\begin{matrix} \alpha & \beta & \gamma & \delta\\ \epsilon & \zeta & \eta & \theta\\ \iota & \kappa & \lambda & \mu\\ \nu & \xi & \pi & \rho \end{matrix}$

I'm sure I remember seeing a thread somewhen that someone posted how to do it.

But I couldn't find it.

You can use Snipping Tool in W7, or other third-party app, after opening the doc and save it as an image file. You could use PRT SCN as well, paste it into an image editor then crop it. Click or right-click on the image to save it if you want to use this.

Thank you , SJ, That is what I usually do.

But someone told me that this is the 21st century, and I naively thought that computers might have advanced at least to the stage of pencil and paper so I really ought to be able to type it straight in by now.

Oh well, back to the chalk and slate.

After some testing...

Change the 'table' tag to: ta='ditto'.

Paste the code into your search bar, copy it from your search bar.

Remove all unnecessary spaces. Paste here.
