flextable R package
The flextable package provides a framework for easily create tables for reporting and publications. Tables can be embedded within:
- R Markdown documents with support for HTML, Word and PowerPoint documents.
- Microsoft Word or PowerPoint documents.
- PDF documents with package
pagedown(it’s only HTML)
Tables can also be rendered as R plots or graphic files (png, pdf and jpeg).
An API is available to let R users create tables for reporting and
control their formatting properties and their layout. A
object is a data.frame representation, it can be manipulated with
functions that give control over:
- header, body and footer content
- text, paragraphs, cells and border formatting of any element
- displayed values
There are articles on the flextable website that will help you get you to start quickly:
The help pages can be read here.
You can get the development version from GitHub:

This project is developed and maintained on my own time. If you have
questions about how to use the package, visit Stackoverflow and use tags
usually read them and answer when possible.
