Mission: Learn and Install Jupyter Notebook 349-7 : fail to markdown a table

Screen Link: https://app.dataquest.io/m/349/project%3A-learn-and-install-jupyter-notebook/7/text-and-markdown-cells

Your Code: ```This is a table explaining what each column in the data set describes:

Column Descritpion
“id” App ID
“track_name” App Name
“size_bytes” Size (in Bytes)
“currency” Currency Type
“price” Price Ammount
“rating_count_tot” User Rating Counts (for all versions)
“rating_count_ver” User Rating Count (for current version)
“user_rating” Average User Rating value (for all versions)
“user_rating_ver” Average User Rating value (for current version)
“ver” Latest version code
“cont_rating” Content rating
“prime_genre” Primary Genre
“sup_device.num” Number of supporting devices
“ipadSc_urls.num” Number of screenshots showed for display
“lang.num” Number of supported languages
“vpp_lic” Vpp Device Based Licensing Enabled

What I expected to happen: I try to create a table, using the guidance provided here: https://www.markdownguide.org/extended-syntax/#tables, run the code, but no table is created after running the code.

Hi @ksenia.kustanovich,

Let’s say, we want to create a table of {'Fruits': ['Apple', 'Orange', 'Banana'], 'Vegetables': ['Spinach', 'Broccoli', 'Beetroot']}.

Step 1
Select Markdown as the cell type

Step 2
In a fresh new line, type:

  • | is used to represent column border
  • The newline is used to represent a new row
  • --- represents that the row above is a header row.

Step 3
Type the column values in the same format as the first row:


That’s it, in the above case the complete markdown code will look like this:


And the table will look like this:

Fruits Vegetables
Apple Spinach
Orange Broccoli
Banana Beetroot

Hope this helps :slightly_smiling_face:.
