Annotation on complex tables


Hello everyone,

I am fairly new to GATE, and I would like to know if anyone of you has already worked with complex table, meaning merged cells.
I have a table looking like this :

I would like to annotate the cells under the 'ID' column with the value in 'Material' column, so I know that the pipe '3' is made of iron and the pipe '4' is made of copper.
Do you have any idea or tips on how to do that?

Thank you for your help.


Hello all, 
I have the same problem, have you been able to find a solution for annotating tables with Gate ? 


Hello bem85,
I haven't been able to find a way to work this around with GATE, so I simply worked on my input file and reconstructed a table with simple cells.
My table now looks like this :

Hope it helps!



Thank you for your answer, so you generate/create your tables/files ? 
I have thousands of pdfs with a lot of tables inside. I cannot modify them I need to extract information from these files and I'm trying to find a solution for this problem :( 

I hope I can find some solution
