Tabula is doing an amazing job with most of the tables. However, when there are merged cells, tabula is not able to identify them.

Ideally I would need an output with rowspan and colspan details based on how the cells are merged. Any help/direction would be appreciated.

Hey @bragboy,

Thanks for reporting. Yeah, that's a known limitation of the table extraction methods that we implemented. If selecting tables manually, try leaving the header row out of the selection.

Thanks again!
