I want my texts to continue in the next line instead of continuing in the other column. How can I manage this? My code is : ![enter image description here][1]

\begin{tabular}{|p{2,8cm}|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|}
  \hline
  \textbf{Architecture }& \textbf{Sharing }& \textbf{TrustSetting} & \multicolumn{2}{l|}{\textbf{Access Control}}\\ \hline
  Distributed:\cite{ 40crossdomain},\cite{51cassandra},\cite{53oasis},\cite{54huDynamic},\cite{79searchengine},\cite{19paas} &    & Trusted: & \textbf{Cryptographic }& \textbf{Non-cryptographic} \\ \cline{4-5}
    &   &  &  &  \\ 
   &    &  &  & \\\cline{1-1}\cline{3-4}
  Centralized: &    & Semi-trusted: &  &  \\\cline{2-2}
   &    &  & &  \\ 
   &   &  &  &  \\\cline{1-1}\cline{3-4}
  Cloud: &    & Untrusted: &  & \\
   &   & &   &   \\ \hline

\end{tabular}

    you can use the {} button in the editor to mark code sections (see my edit) generally we prefer complete documents so people can test answers. You may find it sufficient to put a space after the , which is the common practice and allows some flexibility and line breaking – David Carlisle Jun 21 '14 at 18:13
  • What happens if you insert a space between Distributed: and \cite{ 40crossdomain}? – Mico Jun 21 '14 at 18:36
  • Shouldn't 2,8cm be 2.8cm (decimal vs comma)? – John Kormylo Jun 21 '14 at 19:08
  • @DavidCarlisle did this post look like that when you commented? It looks mighty weird to me like most of the code is missing. Has the last edit done something odd to the question? – FionaSmith Jun 21 '14 at 19:16
  • @Mico see above to David – FionaSmith Jun 21 '14 at 19:17

If you insert a space between Distributed: and the series of \cite commands, you'll allow LaTeX to insert a line break. The ? marks in the screenshot below arise because I can't resolve the \cite instructions. If need be, insert another space between some of the \cite commands in order to allow still another line break.

![enter image description here][1]

\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
\noindent
\begin{tabular}{|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|p{2.8cm}|}
\hline
\textbf{Architecture }& \textbf{Sharing }& \textbf{TrustSetting} & 
\multicolumn{2}{l|}{\textbf{Access Control}}\\ 
\hline % Observe the space after "Distributed" in the next line
Distributed:,\cite{19paas} &    
& Trusted: & \textbf{Cryptographic }& \textbf{Non-cryptographic} \\ 
\cline{4-5}
    &   &  &  &  \\ 
    &   &  &  & \\
\cline{1-1}\cline{3-4}
Centralized: &    & Semi-trusted: &  &  \\
\cline{2-2}
   &    &  & &  \\ 
   &   &  &  &  \\
\cline{1-1}\cline{3-4}
Cloud: &    & Untrusted: &  & \\
   &   & &   &   \\ 
\hline
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

Incidentally, instead of six separate \cite instructions, you could provide a single \cite command that takes six arguments:

\cite{40crossdomain,51cassandra,53oasis,54huDynamic,79searchengine,19paas}

This will allow LaTeX to insert a line break automatically.


Addendum: The OP has deleted some of the LaTeX code as well as the screeshot I posted.
