Financial table is a type of tables that can be created in SMASHDOCs editor, which contains additional functions for delivering financial reports. Financial tables in SMASHDOCs provide a possibility to record detailed accounting information within a single table and highlight important parts of it.

Further the main peculiarities of financial tables are described.

2Displaying financial tables in the document

The main difference between the layout of a common table and financial table in SMASHDOCs editor is availability of currency cells and set script in headers as bold by default. Supported currencies in financial tables are dollar with the corresponding $-symbol and euro with the €-symbol. Currency symbol is displayed on the left side of a cell to indicate which currency is applied in this case. You do not need to insert a currency symbol in the content of the cell, as far as it will not be displayed after saving. However, the percentage symbol is a part of content and will be displayed in the cell after inserting and saving.
