The Table statement as you've written it (ignoring the syntax problem) suggests that you want i <= j <= k. If so, the table can be written in a couple of ways, equivalent except for order:


{3 a[1],2 a[1]+a[2],2 a[1]+a[3],a[1]+2 a[2],a[1]+a[2]+a[3],a[1]+2 a[3],3
     a[2],2 a[2]+a[3],a[2]+2 a[3],3 a[3]}

{3 a[1],2 a[1]+a[2],a[1]+2 a[2],3 a[2],2 a[1]+a[3],a[1]+a[2]+a[3],2 a[2]+a[3],
   a[1]+2 a[3],a[2]+2 a[3],3 a[3]}


If you wanted i < j < k, the table is either of these:





(That's a hard way to do it, of course.)
