# Problem setting the width of a column with multirow command

I have an issue with the width of a column, I have a long word in a cell which is larger than the column width, I've tried with \parbox, changing the width of the box and the column, but I can't fix it. Here's the code, I wrote the needed packages, multirow and array: (I'm sorry for the rotated image).

  \documentclass{article}
\usepackage{array}
\usepackage{multirow}
\begin{document}
\begin{table}[H]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{|c|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{13mm}|>     {\centering\arraybackslash}m{13mm}|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{13mm}|>          {\centering\arraybackslash}m{13mm}|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{13mm}|>{\centering\arraybackslash}m{30mm}|}
\hline
\multirow{2}{*}{text} & \multicolumn{4}{|c|}{text text text text text text text} & \multirow{2}{*}{thereisalongwordhere}\\
\cline{2-5}
& text & text & text & text &\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}
\end{document}

Please always post complete documents it makes modifying the code much easier. It isn't clear what result you want here, for example does the last column have to be m or can it simply be c and fill to its natural width the same as the * specifier for multirow. –  David Carlisle Jan 2 '13 at 19:03
@DavidCarlisle I've just uploaded with the problem with a long word. –  Isai Jan 2 '13 at 19:08
You added an image but that's what I saw when I ran it locally, that's why I asked in the comment what you want to do, just simply changing the last column to c would make it wider, but perhaps you need it to be an m column for other reasons not shown in this example. –  David Carlisle Jan 2 '13 at 19:10
@DavidCarlisle I appreciate your answer, but changing for 'c', I can't fix it. On the other hand, only with the code of the heading of my table, exists the issue. –  Isai Jan 2 '13 at 19:17
Can you please post a complete MWE? I have trouble guessing which one of the many tabular extension packages you are using. –  Max Jan 2 '13 at 19:33

Your main problem is that you had more column specifiers than columns so the last column specifier was never used.

You're right, I get it, thank you so much. –  Isai Jan 2 '13 at 19:46
