Hi Sampath,
To customize the horizontal rule in the table header, use the HeaderRule property of the DOM MATLABTable class. This property is an object of mlreportgen.dom.HorizontalRule class.
For example, to remove this horizontal rule, you can either unset this property or set the horizontal rule border style to be none.
% Create DOM MATLABTable object
mlTbl = mlreportgen.dom.MATLABTable(table);
Unset the header rule as shown below:
mlTbl.HeaderRule = [];
OR set the horizontal rule border to be none as shown below:
mlTbl.HeaderRule.Border = 'none';

You can first create an array of structs 's' with Age and 'Gender' as fields,
s(1).Age = 38;
s(1).Gender = 'Male';
s(2).Age = 43;
s(2).Gender = 'Male';
s(3).Age = 38;
s(3).Gender = 'Female';
Visit the following to see, how it is done:
and use
T = struct2table(s);
If T is a table and D is your document, you can append your table by
MT = MATLABTable(T);
append(D, MATLABTable(T));

The poster already has a table. The problem is that inside Report Generator, the name of the variables are being underlined, and they do not want the variable names to be underlined. This has nothing to do with how the table object was generated, and has to do with how table objects are formatted for Report Generator.

Hi Walter,is it possible to format the table so that variables are not underlined?

Sorry, I do not know that. I have never used Report Generator.
I have encounted the fact that Report Generator supports Style Sheets, but I do not know how to get from that fact to specific representation of table objects.
