I tried that, using the following code:


story = []
doc = SimpleDocTemplate('myDoc.pdf', pagesize=(8.5*inch, 11*inch))

data = [['', 'Hours', 'Amount'],
['ct', '24.00', '456.84'],
['h', '16.00', '310.56'],
['r', '32.00', '621.12'],
['v', '8.00', '155.28']]
tbl = Table(data, hAlign=TA_LEFT)



This creates an pdf with the table centered. I take it that there's a
different way to enable this?
