SWOT-analysis

Hello LaTex community
I do not hope that this post has been here before and is already answered, but I have not been able to find a solution to my problem anywhere on the internet.

I'm trying to make a SWOT table in latex, and here is what I got:
1. \begin{table*}[h]
2. \begin{tabular}{|p{195pt}|p{195pt}|}
3. \hline \bfseries Strengths &\bfseries Weaknesses \\\hline
4. {\parbox{0.2\textwidth}{
5. \begin{itemize}
6. \item Key \\
7. \item Key \\
8. \item Key \\
9. \end{itemize} }}
10. \\\hline
11. \end{tabular}
12. \end{table*}

My problem is that I can not get items in the cell under weaknesses.
I hope you can help me!

Welcome to the forum!

No problem, just ask, sometimes it's hard to search for an existing solution. In this case, it's even hard to think of good keywords to search for.

For placing the additional text, end the column by & and insert it before \\\hline, here I did it:

1. \begin{table*}[h]
2. \begin{tabular}{|p{195pt}|p{195pt}|}
3. \hline \bfseries Strengths &\bfseries Weaknesses \\\hline
4. {\parbox{0.2\textwidth}{
5. \begin{itemize}
6. \item Key \\
7. \item Key \\
8. \item Key \\
9. \end{itemize} }}
10. & text \\\hline
11. \end{tabular}
12. \end{table*}

I just would not design a table this way with all cells separated by lines. Modern tables use very few lines, rather horizontal. If you like, post your complete table, somebody may answer with a redesign suggestion. You may be amazed.
