Very useful, but I have one more question, I have text that is vertically aligned (using \rotatebox) in a \multirow statement. Is it possible to let the row height adjust automatically so that the vertically aligned text doe not extend beyond the cell? Thanks a lot.

Probably safier : add \rule[-2.5cm]{0cm}{5cm} in one cell. Play with values, the first one is optional, here it is set to minus half the wanted height in order to center vertically text in the cell.
