I'm using mdframed for bordered tables. Additionally I'd like to change the bg-colour of some columns using the package colortbl. However when I try to load colortbl with \usepackage, the document refuses to compile moaning about a runaway argument/forgotten endgroup. When I do not load colortbl, the error disappears. Is this a known bug? How can I avoid it then? The error message in question:

Package mdframed Info: mdframed inside float
mdframed uses option nobreak mdframed on input line 2440.
Package mdframed Info: mdframed inside a box 
mdframed uses option nobreak mdframed on input line 2440.
Runaway argument?
{\textbf {Migräne} 
! Paragraph ended before \multicolumn was complete.

    The info is only a info and no error ;-). Can you provide an example (My Migräne). – Marco Daniel Dec 21 '11 at 9:36
  • I've attached a snapshot: !img. What do you mean by (My Migraine)? – Jan Dec 21 '11 at 9:42

    But you forgot the example. – Marco Daniel Dec 21 '11 at 9:47

I get no errors

  • Thanks for your answer. The code in question is very long so I'm not sure about posting it here (big table). Error doesn't occur when I shorten the table. Has it sth. to do with the table's size? – Jan Dec 21 '11 at 9:51

    @Jan: Can you reduce the code. The size of the table should be independent. – Marco Daniel Dec 21 '11 at 9:56
  • Thank you Marco. The size was the problem. I don't know where the problem came from but placing it on another page mysteriously solved it. Weird. – Jan Dec 21 '11 at 10:46
