# Re: [NTG-context] tabulate inside itemize

I would normally use tab stops and line breaks to achieve the following in a numbered list:
```
1. DC=3.20 bbl =420 ft
HWDP= 3.90 bbl =450 ft
DP= 34.63 bbl = 2,037 ft
Totals = 41.73 bbl = 2,907 ft

2. [next step …]

```
This is what I tried, but the output has a blank line at the number.I can’t find anything about tabulate inside itemize.
```
\starttext

\startitemize[n]
\startitem \starttabulate[|l|l|r|l|r|]
\NC DC \NC = \NC 3.20 bbl \NC = \NC 420 ft \NC \NR
\NC HWDP \NC = \NC 3.90 bbl \NC = \NC 450 ft \NC \NR
\NC DP \NC = \NC 34.63 bbl \NC =\NC 2,037 ft \NC \NR
\NC DC \NC = \NC 41.73 bbl \NC =\NC 2,907 ft \NC \NR
\stoptabulate \stopitem
```
\startitem Convert 2,907 to TVD: \\TVD = 2,907 × cosine 45° = 2,907 × 0.707 = 2,056 ft \stopitem
```\startitem ΔP = 2,056 ft × 0.052 × (15 – 7.2) = 834 psi
\stopitemize

\stoptext

```
Is there some way to stop the blank line or should I use an entirely different approach?
```
1. Use \blank[overlay] to continue on the first line of the item entry

2. Disable the blank line at the start of the table with "before="

\starttext

\startitemize[n]
\startitem \blank[overlay]
\starttabulate[|l|c|r|c|r|][before=,after=]
\NC DC   \NC = \NC  3.20 bbl \NC = \NC   420 ft \NC\NR
\NC HWDP \NC = \NC  3.90 bbl \NC = \NC   450 ft \NC\NR
\NC DP   \NC = \NC 34.63 bbl \NC = \NC 2,037 ft \NC\NR
\NC DC   \NC = \NC 41.73 bbl \NC = \NC 2,907 ft \NC\NR
\stoptabulate
\stopitem
\startitem
Convert 2,907 to TVD:\crlf
TVD = 2,907 × cosine 45° = 2,907 × 0.707 = 2,056 ft
\stopitem
\startitem
ΔP = 2,056 ft × 0.052 × (15 – 7.2) = 834 psi
\stopitem
\stopitemize

You can also get rid of the = in your table when you use the \EQ column separator and set the sign for the separator to =.
```
\starttext

\starttabulate[|l|r|r|][EQ={=}]
\NC DC   \EQ  3.20 bbl \EQ   420 ft \NC\NR
\NC HWDP \EQ  3.90 bbl \EQ   450 ft \NC\NR
\NC DP   \EQ 34.63 bbl \EQ 2,037 ft \NC\NR
\NC DC   \EQ 41.73 bbl \EQ 2,907 ft \NC\NR
\stoptabulate

\stoptext
