Help:Table

A table is an arrangement of columns and rows that organizes and positions data. Tables can be created on Wikipedia pages using special wikitext syntax, and many different styles and tricks can be used to customise them.

Tables can be used as formatting instrument, but consider using a multi column list instead.

Using the toolbar

Vector toolbar – default
Monobook toolbar

To automatically insert a table, click Vector toolbar insert table button.png or Button insert table.png (Insert a table) on the edit toolbar. If "Insert a table" is not on the toolbar follow these directions to add it.

The following text is inserted when Insert a table is clicked:

{| class="wikitable"
|-
! Header 1
! Header 2
! Header 3
|-
| row 1 cell 1
| row 1 cell 2
| row 1 cell 3
|-
| row 2 cell 1
| row 2 cell 2
| row 2 cell 3
|}

This code produces the following table:

Header 1 Header 2 Header 3
row 1 cell 1 row 1 cell 2 row 1 cell 3
row 2 cell 1 row 2 cell 2 row 2 cell 3

The sample text ("Header N" or "row N, cell N") is intended to be replaced with actual data.
