The number of parts depends mostly on the nature of the data. However, a table should have the following parts. 

(i) Table No. : Each table should be numbered so that the table may be referred with that number. 

(ii) Title : Every table must be given a suitable title which should be short, clear and complete. 

(iii) Captions : Caption refers to the column heading which explains what the column represents. 

(iv) Stubs : Stubs are the designations of the rows or row headings. (v) Body : It is the heart of the table. The body of the table contains the numerical information. 

(vi) Ruling and Spacing : Ruling and leaving the space depends on the needs of the topic and makes the table attractive and beautiful. 

(vii) Footnotes : In order to explain the figures shown in the table, explanatory notes may be given at the end of the table. 

(viii) Source : At the end of the table, the source or origin of given data is mentioned.
