\end{document}

The resulting table is as follows:

Since I wanted the column 7 to be wider, I used p{<width>} argument. However, all the text in rest of the cells are now vertically top-aligned now.

So,

  1. Is it possible to vertically center-align them?

  2. The column header "Column 7" should be horizontally center-aligned. Is there a way to apply only to that cell?

  1. using m{...} instead of p{} will centre align your cells

  2. to center align the last column header: \multicolumn{1}{c|}{\multirow{2}{*}{\textbf{Column 7}}}

  • m{...} didn't center align the column one and column2 I believe. They should be close to 2nd row if I am right. Oct 23, 2017 at 12:03
  • @kingmakerking Please have a look at my edited answer - column one and two are not perfectly centred but a bit better then previously. Oct 23, 2017 at 12:17
  • @kingmakerking that is because multirow is guessing the row heights of the rows which should be covered (and let's just say the guessing isn't innovative)

Just use m instead of p:
