43,69,163,109,77;...
38,64,131,125,83;...
40,67,133,117,75;...
49,64,119,122,80];

You could effectively give a title to a table by nesting the table within another single-column table that contains the title.
Details = [38,71,176,124,93;...
43,69,163,109,77;...
38,64,131,125,83;...
40,67,133,117,75;...
49,64,119,122,80];
T = array2table(Details,...
'VariableNames',{'Age' 'Height' 'Weight' 'BP_High' 'BP_Low'},...
'RowNames',{'Smith';'Johnson';'Williams';'Jones';'Brown'});
T = table(T,'VariableNames',{'My Table'}); % Nested table
disp(T)
My Table Age Height Weight BP_High BP_Low ________________________________________________________ Smith 38 71 176 124 93 Johnson 43 69 163 109 77 Williams 38 64 131 125 83 Jones 40 67 133 117 75 Brown 49 64 119 122 80
However, now you'll have to index the table differently. For example, to access Height,
T.('My Table').Height
Or to access the 3rd row,
T.('My Table')(3,:)
or you could un-nest the table,
T = T.('My Table');

No, table() is designed for programming, not for display purposes.

  1. Don't forget to add a newline (\n) after the fprintf string,
fprintf('your title\n')
2. The table that is printed by the table() command may be truncated if it is too wide or too tall. This is why it's better to use disp
Compare the following outputs:
T = table(rand(500,1), char(randi(26,500,3)+64))
T = 500×2 table
