entry1 & entry2 & entry3 \\[-1in]

Do you know how to adjust the spacing between rows, but for all the tabular?

Hi,

you can write something like that :

\begin{center}
\label{ResumeContact}
\begin{tabularx}{\linewidth}{cccc}

etc

and how about the space between the columns? I mean, is it possible to adjust the minimal distance between a cell’s content and its left and right edge?

Pas,

\setlength{\tabcolsep}{5pt}

When I do this :

\begin{table}[!h]
\begin{center}
\begin{tabular}
{c|c|c c}
\hline \hline \\
entry1&entry2\$entry3&entry4 \\
etc..

Only the first vertical line is complete, the others start at second line.
How should I do?
Thank you.

add \\[5pt] to the end of each row would increase the height of each row
