I wrote this table in TexShop and all seems to work but, when I try to insert this table in a Tex block in LyX I got some Undefined Control sequences, some Missing $ inserted and some extra}

I used, in the lyx preamble, the following packeges:


Any ideas why Lyx is so fussy?

Your problem is the euro symbol. You should change the preamble entry to: \usepackage[gennarrow]{eurosym}

Have a look at this site. I suggest to replace the \euro\; parts with \officialeuro ~ since you are in text mode.

With this changes your table worked fine for me. The lines of yours should look something like this example one:

\multicolumn{1}{|l|}{Onorario per attività} & \multirow{2}{*}{\officialeuro ~ 3750} & \multicolumn{1}{l|}{Onorario per funzione} & \officialeuro  8000 & \multicolumn{1}{l|}{Onorario per funzione} & \multirow{2}{*}{\officialeuro 11100}

Btw: You should consider using http://tex.stackexchange.com/ for latex related questions the next time.
