  • You may provide an image about your table. I guess the package you need is makecell, in which \multirowcell may help.

There are two syntax errors:


The second argument "c" causes your error message, because this should not a column specifier as in \multicolumn but a width, see the documentation of multirow.

Then a \\ (\tabularnewline) is missing before \hline.

    @DcHua It would be easier to help, if you could simplify the example and use standard fonts, which are installed by default in TeX Live and MiKTeX. The layout problems do not seem to depend on Chinese fonts or XeTeX. Commented Sep 14, 2014 at 0:55
