Hi all,

How can I vertically align these text to the top for these nested

tabulars?

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{multirow}

\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{ll}\hline

qwer&\multirow{4}{*}{\begin{tabular}{p{4cm}@{}}asdf sa asdsadff

sadfsadf asfds adsadf sdaasasdf\vfill\end{tabular}}\\

qwer&\\

qwer&\\

qwer&\\\hline

\end{tabular}

\end{document}

Thanks,

Pander

And though my recommandations, you continue. May be I was not clear :

* NEVER NEVER NEVER USE MULTIROW *

Solution: divide you cells according to what a tabular is:

\begin{tabular}{ll} \hline

\begin{tabular}[t]{c}

qwer \\

qwer \\

qwer \\

qwer

\end{tabular}

&

\begin{tabular}[t]{p{4cm}@{}} asdf sa asdsadff

sadfsadf asfds adsadf sdaasasdf

\end{tabular}

\end{tabular}

and what exactly should people who insist on writing entries similar to

HTML rowspan do instead?

\halign is not the same as <table>...</table> and not designed to span

rows. And pdf is not html. Hopefully! However, it is *always* possible

to get a tabular where rows look like if they were spanned, by dividing

the cells correctly.

|---------------------------------------------------|

| | |

| |-------------------------|

| | |

|-------------------------|-------------------------|

This is absolutely not a multirow in the sense of \halign, because

\halign does not know what multirow is, and multirow package provides

a (possibly tempting) "fake" code based on the idea that the

height/depth of the rows are multiple of the \@arstrutbox dimensions.

For \halign:

.this is a table that contains one row that contains 2 cells.

.The first cell contains whatever you want

.The second contains a \halign that contains two rows, each one

has 1 cell.

A bit more complex :

|---------------------------------------------------|

| | |

| |-------------------------|

| | |

| |-------------------------|

| | |

|-------------------------| |

| | |

|-------------------------|-------------------------|

. this is a table that contains one row that contains 2 cells.

. the first cell contains a \halign that contains two rows, each

one has 1 cell

. the second cell contains \halign that contains 3 rows, each one

has 1 cell

Step by step it is always possible to divide each rectangle.

To control the height/depths, tabu will be more powerfull than

tabular, but even with tabular you can make such a table easily

provided you don't change the font size too much:

Here is how \halign works:

% ------------------------------------------------------

\documentclass [a4paper]{article}

\usepackage {array}

\begin{document}

\tabcolsep =0pt

\begin{tabular}{|*2{>{\tabcolsep=12pt}c|}} \hline

\begin{tabular}{c}

\rlap{\begin{tabular}{c} \\ \\ \\ \end{tabular}}%

One \\ \hline

two

\end{tabular}

&

\begin{tabular}{c}

One \\

Two \\ \hline

{\large Three} \rlap{\begin{tabular}{c}\\ \\\end{tabular}}%

\end{tabular} \\ \hline

\end{tabular}

\end{document}\endinput

% -----------------------------------------------------

no measure, perfect alignment,

even if you change the margin, the font, \mag, whatever you

want to change...

Regards.

Use ConTeXt? (SCNR)

If he wants to make "non regular" tabulars: yes.

I fear there is no other solution with \halign.

It's not difficult to provide a \reserveheight command

with \erows from makecell, which is buggy by the way

(does not work with one column tabulars - but no matter):

% ----------------------------------------------------

\documentclass [a4paper]{article}

\usepackage {array,makecell}

\begin{document}

\def\reserveheight #1{%

\rlap{\begin{tabular}{ll} \erows [\\]1{#1}\end{tabular}}}

\tabcolsep =0pt

\begin{tabular}{|*2{>{\tabcolsep=12pt}c|}} \hline

\begin{tabular}{c}

\reserveheight{3} One \\ \hline

two

\end{tabular}

&

\begin{tabular}{c}

One \\

Two \\ \hline

\reserveheight{2} {\large Three}

\end{tabular} \\ \hline

\end{tabular}

\end{document}\endinput

% --------------------------------------------------------

Otherwise, you can keep cooking with \multirow, obwohl das ist

kein TeX tabelle ...

Regards.
