Hello All,

I have an over wide table, and would like to know if it is possible to move
the margin or "centre" it, just for the one table individually.

\documentclass[a4paper, 11pt, mainfile, MScProj]{article}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}
\begin{center}
% 5 columns
\begin{tabular}{|p{2cm}|p{2cm}|p{2cm}|p{2cm}|c|}
\hline
\bf{Frequency: 1st Born of 3 Girls} & \bf{Frequency: 2nd Born of 3
Girls} & \bf{Frequency: 3rd Born of 3 Girls} & \bf{Achieved Percentile
Range} & \bf{Range Achievement Description} \\
\hline
2   & 1   & 3 &  95\%-100\%    &Intellectually superior \\
2   & 1   & 2 &  90\%-94\% &Above average in intellectual capacity
\\
0   & 4   & 4 &  75\%-89\% &Above average in intellectual
capacity\\
5   & 1   & 2 &  51\%-74\% &Intellectually average \\
0   & 0   & 0 &  50\% &Intellectually average \\
1   & 3   & 0 &  26\%-50\% &Intellectually average \\
1   & 1   & 0 &  11\%-25\% &Below average \\
0   & 0   & 0 &  6\%-10\%  &Below average \\
0   & 0   & 0 &  0\%-5\%  & Intellectually impaired \\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{Collated number of participants from 3 daughter families
scoring per percentile range}

\label{tab:Collated-number-of-participants-from-3-daughter-families-scoring-

\end{center}
\end{table}
