Perhaps you could try the "dirty" way: to brake your expressions into
the appropriate parts by hand and then place them in the consecutive
lines. Something like that:

\begin{tabular}{|c|c|c|c|}
\hline
A.1 & B.1 & C.1 & D.1 \\
A.2 & B.2 & C.2 & D.2 \\
\hline
\end{tabular}

Or maybe the '\multirow' could be of some use.
