multirow in a table

I have the follwing table

\begin{table}[t]
\center
\footnotesize
\caption{the capt}
\label{thelabel}
\begin{tabular}{ | c | c | } \hline
%\multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Name}} & \multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Value}} \\ \hline
\textbf{Name} & \textbf{Value} \\ \hline
\textbf{-} & \textbf{-} \\ \hline
\textit{CoCo} & 23 \\ \hline
\textit{KiKi} & 49 \\ \hline
\end{tabular}

\end{table}


How can I have the cells "Name" and "Value" on two rows by removing the cells containing "-", when I use 1\multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Name}} & \multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Value}} it doesnt work

The question is not very clear: \multirow is intended for having a cell vertically centered with respect to several cells next to it. Are you perhaps asking how to get more vertical space above and below "Name" and "Value"? –  egreg Jul 11 '12 at 9:08
@egreg no, what I want is to merge the cell Name with the cell bellow it, using \multirow –  user995434 Jul 11 '12 at 9:39

I suppose that you only want some more vertical space in the header which can be done with a vertical invisible rule:

\documentclass{scrartcl}
\begin{document}

\begin{tabular}{ | c | c | } \hline
\textbf{Name} & \textbf{Value}\\
\textbf{-} & \textbf{-} \\ \hline
\textit{CoCo} & 23 \\ \hline
\textit{KiKi} & 49 \\ \hline
\end{tabular}

\end{document}

then simply do not use \hline at the end –  Herbert Jul 11 '12 at 9:41
can you modify your example so that I can see the result ?! –  user995434 Jul 11 '12 at 9:48
well ok, remove \hline at the multirow line and adding an empty line "& \\ \hline" works, thanks –  user995434 Jul 11 '12 at 9:52
see my edit, but I cannot believe that it is what you want?? –  Herbert Jul 11 '12 at 9:52
