I define a new command like this:

\newcommand{\rowcol}[4]{ %
    \multicolumn{#1}{#3}{\multirow{#2}{*}{#4}} %

I then use it inside the column as,

\rowcol{2}{2}{|c|}{Factor}}&\multicolumn{2}{c|}{Replication}&Total \\ \cline{3-4}

Is there any mistake in doing this, I'm getting error.

There's a redundant closing brace after Factor. The following works:





\rowcol{2}{2}{|c|}{Factor}&\multicolumn{2}{c|}{Replication}&Total \\ \cline{3-4}


Note that if you put spaces before comment signs, you might as well omit those signs altogether.
