The code below gives me the following error: ! Paragraph ended before \multicolumn was complete.

I tried several times but I cannot find what I did wrong. The exact same table works perfectly fine in MikTeX, but I am using TeXmaker now and it does not work. Is there a special package that I should import?

First of all, welcome to TeX.SE!! I would, as an aside, take a look at this popular question and become familiar with the difference between your editor and your compiler. Very, very rarely does your choice of editor make a difference in how your code compiles. –  Sean Allred Jun 22 '13 at 19:37

While blank lines are generally allowed in a tabular environment, they aren't inside a \multicolumn.

You also have some spurious spaces, I marked them with <-- here and protected the end-of-lines with a %

\small{(d) J48 pruned} & \small{(e) PART pruned} & \small{(f) MLP} \\
\includegraphics[scale=.2]{NBCM.eps}& \multicolumn{2}{c}{% <-- here

The following line

\includegraphics[scale=.2]{NBCM.eps}& \multicolumn{2}{c}{

produces an error, because is followed by an empty line, which means a new paragraph for TeX.

Thanks, it works perfectly fine now. –  Goce Anastasovski Jun 22 '13 at 19:03
