# multirow table, error

I'm trying to create a table which some of the cells are multirow and this is my code:

\begin{table}[!htb]
\centering
\caption{""}
\label{table3}
\begin{tabular}{*{7}{|c}|}
\hline
\multirow{2}{*}{H}& \multicolumn{3}{c|}{K@10} & \multicolumn{3}{c|}{K@20}\\\cline{2-7}
& P & R & TFFR &  P & R & TFFR  \\\hline
H\textsubscript{01}  & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*}  \\\hline
H\textsubscript{02} & & & & & &  \\
H\textsubscript{03}  & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*}   \\\hline
H\textsubscript{04} & & & & & &  \\
H\textsubscript{05}  & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*} & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*}  \\\hline
H\textsubscript{06} & & & & & &  \\\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}


I don't know what's wrong with this code. This is the error which I got:

! LaTeX Error: Something's wrong--perhaps a missing \item.

See the LaTeX manual or LaTeX Companion for explanation.
Type  H <return>  for immediate help.

l.487 ... & \multirow{2}{*}  & \multirow{2}{*}  \\

• \multirow takes three mandatory arguments: rows, width, and text. You consistently miss the third argument. – Mike Renfro Feb 4 '14 at 23:16
• thanks, I don't want to have a text in my cell, I just want to have a colored cell, what should I do? – sarah Feb 4 '14 at 23:22
• Use \multirow{2}{*}{\cellcolor{<your color>}} with \usepackage[table]{xcolor} loaded. – Jesse Feb 4 '14 at 23:39

Let us list the errors first.

1. For quotation marks you shouldn't use "..." but ...''
2. \multirow{2}{*}{H} takes three arguments - \multirow{<rows>}{<width>}{<content>}. You have missed the third argument. Even if you don't want to have text, you should have it but without content like \multirow{2}{*}{}.
3. \textsubscript isn't defined by LaTeX. You have to use \usepackage{fixltx2e} in the preamble to make it work. BTW are you trying to write a chemical formula? If so, there are packages meant for that job. Or are those H\textsubscript{02}s mathematical variables? Please elaborate.
4. To make colored cells, load colortbl package or usepackage[table]{xcolor} (Both are equivalent). and the use \cellcolor{<color> inside the cell:

& \cellcolor{green!50!blue} <content> &


or

 & \cellcolor{green!50!blue}\multirow{2}{*}{}  &

5. Do you really want vertical lines? What about reducing the number of some horizontal lines? You may read the documentation of booktabs package to learn how to produce a good table.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multirow,fixltx2e}
\usepackage[table]{xcolor}    %% this in turn loads colortbl
%\usepackage{colortbl}
