I am trying to properly align to the left a few variables names in a latex table. These variables names are within a multirowcell as the table is big (16 columns+).

I have tried with \shortstack[l] which works very well for the first variable (the one in bold). However this works less well for the second variable "VARIABLE LA DEUXIEME IMPORTANTE". Same for "Variable Deux" and "Variable Trois". Does anyone have a fix?

Thank you!

The documentation tells you that there are two optional arguments for \multirowcell. Since the alignment is specified in the second optional argument, you will need to specify both:

\multirowcell{2}[0pt][l]{Variable\\Deux}
