I want to create a table like this using Latex

      ---------------------------------
      |               sets            |
      ---------------------------------
      | 1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |
---------------------------------------
| I1  | * |   | * | * |   | * |   | * |
---------------------------------------

Here is what I wrote

\begin{table}
\caption{Multiprogram sets}
\label{multiprogram}
 \begin{tabular}{| c | c | c | c | c | c | c | c | c |}
  \cline{3-9}
  \multicolumn{8}{}{}    &   Sets  \\
  \hline
  \multicolumn{1}{}{}   & 1 & 2 &  3 & 4 & 5 &  6 & 7  & 8 \\
  \hline
   astar         &  & * &  & * &  &  & * &   \\
  \hline
 \end{tabular}
\end{table}

But it doesn't work! The output look like

          -----------------------------
                                 sets |
---------------------------------------
        1 | 2 | 3 | 4 | 5 | 6 | 7 | 8 |
---------------------------------------
| I1  | * |   | * | * |   | * |   | * |
---------------------------------------

Any way to fix that?

    It should be \multicolumn{1}{c|}{} & \multicolumn{8}{c|}{Sets} \\ – egreg Sep 6 '13 at 11:13

Code:

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
    \begin{table}
        \centering
        \caption{Multiprogram sets}
        \label{multiprogram}
        \begin{tabular}{c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|c|}
            \cline{2-9}
             & \multicolumn{8}{|c|}{Sets}\\
            \cline{2-9}
             & 1 & 2 & 3 & 4 & 5 & 6 & 7 & 8\\
            \hline
            \multicolumn{1}{|c|}{astar} & & * &  & * &  &  & * &\\
            \hline
        \end{tabular}
    \end{table}
\end{document}

And the result:
