### Investigate the caption

Investigate the caption package.  If you continue to have difficulties, post a sample document and some suggestion might be found.

Thank you George!

I attach a file here, the table I want to produce looks exactly like this. I still did not find how to create multiple line caption and put the table in line with the text. When I typeset the table is larger than the text.

### Attached is my rendition of

Attached is my rendition of your table.  I just used an empty caption because it looks like the text should be in the body of the table, below the table heading.  I also added a couple of TeX fields (modified the [B] TeX field) to introduce some sizing differences to narrow the table.  I also added the caption package and selected options to turn off the separator after the table number and to change the font used for the caption label.

### Thank you so much George for

Thank you so much George for the effort!!

I went through the "help" on table, and still got the following question mark:

under the title line, there is a texfiled of "4.7in". I dont know how did you insert this here, since it appears to control the width of the table (339 points) when I double click on it and shows the caption content when I right click it on properties.

I appreciate it!!

### ... now i see that 4.7in is

... now i see that 4.7in is the width of that cell.

but is there a command to automatically adjust the size of the table so that the width of the entire table is the same as the text?

many thanks!

### No, that's not available.

No, that's not available.  You could use the layout package to find out the text width and then you can set a column width to match.

### Thanks George. I followed

Thanks George. I followed your advice, add the layout package, enter a TeX field and type \layout and click OK. But nothing happened, there is no immediate draw of the layout of my document. I noticed that the package does not work for shells, so I used a Standard Latex.

I want to know the layout of my text so that I could adjust the table. What do I do next?

Thanks!

### Make sure the \layout TeX

Make sure the \layout TeX field is in a Body Text paragraph and not inside some other object (like a table).  As far as I know, this package would work with any document.

### Dear George, would you please

Dear George, would you please have a look at the .tex file I uploaded? The \layout Tex field is added but I still see nothing. How is it supposed to show my page layout?

Thanks a lot!

### Works for me.  The layout is

Works for me.  The layout is displayed when you typeset the document.
