Hello,

does anybody have a template for a notation tabel? (see pictures)

Thanks

### template for a notation tabel  Topic is solved

Welcome to the forum!

Here is a quick start:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tabularx}
\usepackage{booktabs}
\usepackage[labelfont=bf,format=plain,justification=raggedright,singlelinecheck=false]{caption}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}
\caption{Notation for\ldots}
\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{@{}XX@{}}
\toprule
Indices \\
$K$ & Number of ... \\
$T$ & Number of ... \\
Parameters \\
c   & something \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}
\end{document}

### template for a notation tabel

Thank you, that helped a lot!
Could you please explain to me how I can adjust the width of each collums? For example the first collum should be 20% of the textwidth...

Adjust the tabularx line to:

\begin{tabularx}{\textwidth}{@{}p{0.2\textwidth}X@{}}

p{0.2\textwidth} is standard tabular syntax and specifies a column with 20% of the text width.

X is tabularx syntax and specifies a column that fills all available space up to the max we set above (\textwidth).

### template for a notation tabel

Hello,
my notationtable is nearly done but now I don't know how I can fix the following problems:
I just want to move all variable descriptions to the left while the topics (like Parameters: or Decision variables:) can fit a whole row. (see screenshot) And why is there so much Space between Random Variables and BL_kt?

Thank you!

### template for a notation tabel

Okay I fixed the layout problems myself. But I don't know why the table moves to the end of my document when I add two more rows. (see pictures) There should be enough space for two more rows but it still is not on the right spot.
Any Ideas what I can do?
Thanks!
