How do I add a legend for columns in a table?


I created a table with columns and rows, but I have been asked to add a legend for columns to provide additional clarity. How do I go about this?

@gabriel omotosho Welcome to the Atlassian Community and Confluence Cloud. 

Can you elaborate on what the intention of this legend is? Do the columns in this table have headers, or is it just data in a table? You can insert headers in edit mode by selecting the table and clicking on the table options. This will allow you to add header row above your columns, a header column in front of your rows, and auto numbered rows.
