\starttable ... \stoptable


The environment \starttable ... \stoptable is an old and nearly obsolete way to handle tabular material


\starttable[|...|][...=...,...] ... \stoptable
...=...,...inherits from \setuptables

Settings name

\starttable[...][...=...,...] ... \stoptable
...=...,...inherits from \setuptables


The table entries are placed between the \starttable ... \stoptable pair. Between the bracket pair your can specify the table format template using column separators | and format keys, or using the name of a defined table template (see \definetabletemplate).

There is a long wiki page about Table macros, and the macros have been superseded by different macros sets, so this page is intentionally kept short. The Tables Overview page contains a quick overview of all the tabular macro environments and their pros and cons.


Example 1

The command \placetable on the first line has the same function as \placefigure. It takes care of spacing before and after the table and numbering. Furthermore the floating mechanism is initialised so the table will be placed at the most optimal location on the page.

\placetable[here][tab:ships]{Ships that moored at Hasselt.}
\NC \bf Year \NC \bf Number of ships \NC\SR
