A table is a means of arranging data in rows and columns. The use of tables is pervasive throughout all communication, research and data analysis. Tables appear in print media, handwritten notes, computer software, architectural ornamentation, traffic signs and many other places. The precise conventions and terminology for describing tables varies depending on the context. Further, tables differ significantly in variety, structure, flexibility, notation, representation and use.<ref name="Fink000">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }} </ref><ref name="Mcnabb000">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }} </ref><ref name="Morgan000">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }} </ref><ref name="Robey000">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }} </ref><ref name="Zielinski000">{{#invoke:citation/CS1|citation |CitationClass=book }}</ref> In books and technical articles, tables are typically presented apart from the main text in numbered and captioned floating blocks.
