    How to create a table
    Method 1:

    Write the following code:
    Code:
    [table] Item Code |  Description |  Price
    \ GD01 | Pretty Dress | $20
    \ BS02 |Smart Shirt | $22
    [/table]
    You'll get this:
    Item Code Description Price
    GD01 Pretty Dress $20
    BS02 Smart Shirt $22

    Method 2:

    Use any spreadsheet software that you like. In our example, we are using Google Spreadsheet:
    Code:
    1. On the left corner cell, type in the word [table]
    2. In the next column, type in your text
    3. In the next column, type in |
    4. Repeat
    5. On the first cell of the next roll, type in \
    6. In the next cell of the same roll, type in your text
    7. In the next cell, type in |
    8. Tip: You can drag the | from the top cell and fill the bottom cells
    9. In the first cell of the last roll, type in the word [/table]
    You'll have something like this:

    Select and copy the cells with the contents, like this:

    create-table-select.PNG

    Then paste into your post, you'll get something like this:

    create-table-paste.PNG

    When you post your message, you'll get the table below:

    Item CodeDescriptionPrice
    GD01Pretty Dress$20
    BS02Smart Shirt$22

    Note:
    1. Separate each column with | (pipe key)
    2. Start each row with \

    Method 3:
    • Create your spreadsheet using Google Spreadsheet.
    • From the Google Spreadsheet File menu in the toolbar, select Publish to the Web.
    • You'll see a window like this:
    google-spreadsheet-publish.png
    • In that window, click the Start publishing button and a unique URL will be generated.
    • The unique URL will look like this:
    • Code:
      https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/pub?key=0ArFxn9Pn1PD_dG9kYXlpRm5vSXYxMWNxeGVQam1Yc0E&output=html
    • In SingaporeMotherhood Forum, on the message box toolbar, click on the "Media" button media-button.png
    • Paste your unique Google spreadsheet URL into the pop-up window and you'll get a table that look like this:
