3. Formatting, Printing, and Table Hacks > 19. Put Footnotes in Tables

Put Footnotes in Tables

This hack shows you how to implement this sorely needed feature in a table.

There’s no simple way to create a separate set of footnotes just for a table, but with a few well-placed section breaks, it’s at least possible.

Here’s how to create a footnote that appears right below the table, as shown in Figure 3-21.

First, while in Normal view (ViewNormal), select InsertBreak and insert continuous section breaks directly above and below the table, as shown in Figure 3-22.

Next, put your cursor where the first footnote reference should appear and select InsertReferenceFootnote to display the Footnote and Endnote dialog, shown in Figure 3-23. Select the Endnotes radio button and choose “End of section” for the location. Choose “A, B, C, ...” as the number format, select “Restart each section” from the Numbering drop-down list, and click the Apply button.
