Grid[{ {ptedgeL , ptfaceL, ptsphrL, ttencl}, {10, 10, 5, 3}, {"ptvertS3=", {{-75, -51, -45}, {27, 30, -9}}, SpanFromLeft, SpanFromLeft}, {"ptvertS4=", {{-32, -69, -57}, {-31, -31, 59}, {-21, 56, -46}}, SpanFromLeft, SpanFromLeft} }, Dividers -> All, Alignment -> Left ] I find it very useful to include the Dividers->All option to better understand what Grid does, even if I might decide to remove it in the end for aesthetic reasons... hth, albert
