How to | Format a Table of Data

Not only can the Wolfram Language perform very complicated data analysis, it can also display these results in a formatted, easy-to-read display that can be used in other documents or presentations. One of the most useful ways to format data is with a table.

Individual items can be made to span multiple rows, columns, or both by using SpanFromLeft, SpanFromAbove, or SpanFromBoth:
