I am trying to create a template for a table to put 1800/1810 US census data into. I figured it would be easier to add the early census information with headings explaining "males under 10", "10-16", "16-26", etc., These censuses might become more useful to me in this format, since the census records often don't include the headings.
I thought I had achieved my goal, and came up with a pretty good-looking table with a heading and subsequent subheading row, but then I realized that there were columns missing, which LOOK like they're there before I hit PREVIEW.
One is in the "Females" subhead section -- where "under 10" goes missing and throws everything off. Then in the subsequent (third) row for the actual data, the number "2" that I'm trying to insert for "Males under 10" goes missing, and the whole table is thrown off. I put in a couple of extra rows to play around with, but they are just there for experimentation. The third row, for data, started as a copy/paste of the subheading row, and I was going to replace each word with the appropriate data, but that's when I realized things weren't lining up right.
After lots of experimenting, I decided to save my attempts in the profile I was working on, https://www.wikitree.com/wiki/Younker-54 and ask for help in case someone is willing to look and tell me where I went wrong. I am reluctant to give up because I feel I am so close!
Where did my 1800/1810 census table go astray?
