for instance, to compress rows by 1 inch:

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

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

    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?

    Thanks a lot in advance!

    When I do this :

    \caption{Resultados dos testes de hipótese}\label{tab:fremantle_modelos}
    {c|c|c c}
    \hline \hline \\
    entry1&entry2$entry3&entry4 \\

    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

Did I get this wrong? Let me know!
