Make an entry that will span multiple rows of a table.


vpos is the vertical positioning: t. c. or b.

nrows is the number of rows to span.  It's up to you to leave the other
      rows empty, or the stuff created by \multirow will over-write it.
      With a positive value of nrows the spanned colomns are this row and
      (nrows-1) rows below it. With a negative value of nrows they are
      this row and (1-nrows) above it.

bigstruts is mainly used if you've used bigstrut.sty.  In that case it
      is the total number of uses of \bigstrut within the rows being
      spanned.  Count 2 uses for each \bigstrut, 1 for each \bigstrut[x]
      where x is either t or b.  The default is 0.

width is the width to which the text is to be set, or * to indicate that
      the text argument's natural width is to be used.
text is the actual text.  If the width was set explicitly, the text will
      be set in a parbox of that width; you can use \\ to force linebreaks
      where you like.

      If the width was given as * the text will be set in LR mode.  If you
      want a multiline entry in this case you should use a tabular or array
      in the text parameter.

	  If the width is given as = the width will be taken from the
	  tabular column in which it appears. This only works for p{}
	  columns and similar, for example X columns in tabularx, and LCRJ
	  columns in tabulary.

      The text is centered vertically within the range spanned by nrows,
	  unless a vpos argument is given.

vmove is a length used for fine tuning:  The text will be raised (or
      lowered, if vmove is negative) by that length above (below) wherever
       it would otherwise have gone.

For example (using both multirow and bigstrut)

\multirow{4}{1in}{Common g text} & Column g2a\\
      & Column g2b \\
      & Column g2c \\
      & Column g2d \\
\multirow{3}[6]*{Common g text} & Column g2a\bigstrut\\\cline{2-2}
      & Column g2b \bigstrut\\\cline{2-2}
      & Column g2c \bigstrut\\
\multirow{4}[8]{1in}{Common g text} & Column g2a\bigstrut\\\cline{2-2}
      & Column g2b \bigstrut\\\cline{2-2}
      & Column g2c \bigstrut\\\cline{2-2}
      & Column g2d \bigstrut\\
\multirow{4}*{\minitab[c]{Common \\ g text}} & Column g2a\\
      & Column g2b \\
      & Column g2c \\
      & Column g2d \\

If any of the spanned rows are unusually large, or if you're using
bigstrut.sty and \bigstrut's are used assymetrically about the centerline of
the spanned rows, the vertical centering may not come out right.  Use the
vmove argument in this case.

Just before "text" is expanded, the \multirowsetup macro is expanded to      
set up any special environment.  Initially, \multirowsetup contains just
\raggedright.  It can be redefined with \renewcommand.

\bigstrut[pos] where pos is t or b

    Add a bit of space above, below, or both a tabular row. The amount
	is determined by \bigstrutjot.



Put a big delimiter over n rows in a tabular, optionally preceded
(\ldelim) or followed (rdelim) by text.

multirow – Create tabular cells spanning multiple rows

The package has a lot of flexibility, including an option for specifying an entry at the “natural” width of its text.

The package is distributed with the bigdelim and bigstrut packages, which can be used to advantage with \multirow cells.
