I am new to Latex and I have tried to create a table but it seems not to work correctly - the vertical line is missed. Here is the code:

\begin{table*}[t]
  \centering
  \begin{center}
   \begin{tabular}{|r|l|c|c|c|}
    \hline &&\multicolumn{3}{c}{\bf Results}\\
    \hline\bf Nr.& \bf Features&\bf Strict &\bf Outer &\bf Inner\\ \hline
    1&Morphological F.&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    2&1 + Bla &100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    3&2 + Blabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    4&3 + blablabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    5&4 + blablablabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    \hline
   \end{tabular}
  \end{center}
  \caption{\label{font-table} Results. }
  \label{tab:1}
\end{table*}

Here is the output that I become :(

I think that something is wrong with the 5 line, but it seems I have tried everything :(

  • Have you tried to write your 5th line like this: `\hline &&\multicolumn{3}{|c|}{\bf Results}\`

  • unrelated to the lines you just want \centering not \centering\begin{center} and also \bfseries not \bf Jul 31, 2014 at 22:14
  • Use `\hline &&\multicolumn{3}{c|}{\bfseries Results}\`

  • Welcome to TeX.SX! Please make your code compilable (if possible), or at least complete it with \documentclass{...}, the required \usepackage's, \begin{document}, and \end{document}. That may seem tedious to you, but think of the extra work it represents for TeX.SX users willing to give you a hand. Help them help you: remove that one hurdle between you and a solution to your problem.

You forgot a | in your \multicolumn (first row). Delete the center environment: it only adds spurious vertical spacing:

\begin{table*}[t]
  \centering
   \begin{tabular}{|r|l|c|c|c|}
    \hline &&\multicolumn{3}{c|}{\bf Results}\\
    \hline\bf Nr.& \bf Features&\bf Strict &\bf Outer &\bf Inner\\ \hline
    1&Morphological F.&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    2&1 + Bla &100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    3&2 + Blabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    4&3 + blablabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    5&4 + blablablabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    \hline
   \end{tabular}
  \caption{\label{font-table} Results. }
  \label{tab:1}
\end{table*}

Look, I've add something and worked for me:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{amsthm}
\usepackage{enumitem}

\begin{document}

\begin{table*}[t]
  \centering
  \begin{center}
   \begin{tabular}{|r|l|c|c|c|}
    \hline &&\multicolumn{3}{|c|}{\bf Results}\\
    \hline\bf Nr.& \bf Features&\bf Strict &\bf Outer &\bf Inner\\ \hline
    1&Morphological F.&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    2&1 + Bla &100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    3&2 + Blabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    4&3 + blablabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    5&4 + blablablabla&100.00&100.00&100.00\\
    \hline
   \end{tabular}
  \end{center}
  \caption{\label{font-table} Results. }
  \label{tab:1}
\end{table*}

\end{document}

I changed \hline &&\multicolumn{3}{c}{\bf Results}\\ for \hline &&\multicolumn{3}{|c|}{\bf Results}\\

  • \multicolumn{3}{c|} is enough. You were posting your answer while I finished mine. Sorry for the (almost) duplicate. If you want, I withdraw my answer.

  • I saw it with your answer, just {c|} is enough. Is mandatory to erase one of the answers?

  • I guess not. It's just they're almost the same (anyway, there weren't many choices to answer…).
