Is there a way to make the cell containing "This is a really long sentence sentence sentence" into 2 lines? enter image description here

  • Use a paradox` \multirow{2}{*}{\parbox{4cm}{This is a really long sentence sentence sentence}} & 0 & 6 & 230 \\ `

You can define your own command and give it width and the text \breakText{5cm}{text}, like so :

Output

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{multirow}

\newcommand{\breakText}[2]{%
  \noindent \parbox{#1}{%
    #2
  }%
}
\begin{document}

  \begin{table}[htbp]
    \centering
    \begin{tabular}{ccccp{1cm}p{1cm}p{1cm}p{1cm}p{1cm}p{1cm}p{1cm}}
      \hline
      & A & B & C  \\
      & & &  &\\
      \hline
      \multirow{2}{*}{\breakText{5cm}{This is a really long sentence sentence sentence}} & 0 & 6 & 230 \\
      & 1 & 5 & 195  \\ \hline
    \end{tabular}
    \label{table2}
  \end{table}
\end{document}
