I wrote this code in order to have 6 tables. I cannot understand what to do in order to correct the error of misplaced \omit.

Thanks

    \multicolumn should be the first entry in a cell. You commonly have \vline \multicolumn. If your approach is to insert a vertical rule, that should be included inside the \multicolumn macro's 3rd argument. See if that makes a difference to your compilation. – Werner Oct 31 '18 at 18:07
  • @Werner the vertical rule should be in the second argument of \multicolumn: \multicolumn{2}{|l}{...}. – Skillmon Oct 31 '18 at 18:10
  • @Skillmon: ...right. – Werner Oct 31 '18 at 18:13

\multicolumn has to be the first element in a tabular cell. In your case you're using

\vline \multicolumn{2}{l}{...}

If the intent is to produce a vertical rule to the left of the column, rather use

\multicolumn{2}{|l}{...}
