Pandas DataFrame: to_latex() function

DataFrame - to_latex() function

The to_latex() function is used to render an object to a LaTeX tabular environment table.

Syntax:

DataFrame.to_latex(self, buf=None, columns=None, col_space=None, header=True, index=True, na_rep='NaN', formatters=None, float_format=None, sparsify=None, index_names=True, bold_rows=False, column_format=None, longtable=None, escape=None, encoding=None, decimal='.', multicolumn=None, multicolumn_format=None, multirow=None)

Parameters:

Name Description Type/Default Value Required / Optional
buf  Buffer to write to. If None, the output is returned as a string. file descriptor or None Required
columns   The subset of columns to write. Writes all columns by default. list of label Optional
col_space The minimum width of each column. int Optional
header Write out the column names. If a list of strings is given, it is assumed to be aliases for the column names. bool or list of str
Default Value: True
Required
index  Write row names (index). bool
Default Value: True
Required
na_rep  Missing data representation. str
Default Value: ‘NaN’
Required
formatters  Formatter functions to apply to columns’ elements by position or name. The result of each function must be a unicode string. List must be of length equal to the number of columns. list of functions or dict of {str: function} Optional
float_format  Formatter for floating point numbers. For example float_format="%%.2f" and float_format="{:0.2f}".format will both result in 0.1234 being formatted as 0.12. one-parameter function or str,
Default Value: None
Optional
sparsify  Set to False for a DataFrame with a hierarchical index to print every multiindex key at each row. By default, the value will be read from the config module. bool Optional
index_names  Prints the names of the indexes. bool
Default Value: True
Required
bold_rows  Make the row labels bold in the output. bool
Default Value: False
Required
column_format  The columns format as specified in LaTeX table format e.g. 'rcl' for 3 columns. By default, 'l' will be used for all columns except columns of numbers, which default to 'r'. str Optional
longtable  By default, the value will be read from the pandas config module. Use a longtable environment instead of tabular. Requires adding a usepackage{longtable} to your LaTeX preamble. bool
Optional
escape  By default, the value will be read from the pandas config module. When set to False prevents from escaping latex special characters in column names. bool
Optional
encoding  A string representing the encoding to use in the output file, defaults to 'utf-8’. str
Required
decimal  Character recognized as decimal separator, e.g. ',' in Europe. str
Default Value: '.'
Required
multicolumn  Use multicolumn to enhance MultiIndex columns. The default will be read from the config module. bool
Default Value: True
Required
multicolumn_format  The alignment for multicolumns, similar to column_format The default will be read from the config module. str
Default Value: 'l'
Required
multirow  Use multirow to enhance MultiIndex rows. Requires adding a usepackage{multirow} to your LaTeX preamble. Will print centered labels (instead of top-aligned) across the contained rows, separating groups via clines. The default will be read from the pandas config module. bool
Default Value: False
Required

Returns: str or None
If buf is None, returns the resulting LateX format as a string. Otherwise returns None.
