# Math Help - Aligning text in tables

1. ## Aligning text in tables

How do you align text in individual cells?
I'm trying to centre everything in the first row but everything else will be aligned to the right.

2. I was wondering about that myself.

How do you align text in individual cells?
I'm trying to centre everything in the first row but everything else will be aligned to the right.
Do you mean something like this?

$\begin{array}{|r|r|r|}
\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{\text{Jan.}}&\multicolumn{1}{ c|}{\text{Feb.}}&\multicolumn{1}{c|}{\text{Mar.}} \\ \hline
1234567890&1&2 \\
0&1234567890&1 \\
0&0&1234567890
\end{array}$

You can override the format in an individual cell by using the \multicolumn command.
