Finally, I add footnote in a table. But it does not locate in the bottom of the page. It is below the table. And, \usepackage[bottom]{footmisc} does not work in my case. How could I make the footnote at the bottom of the page.

1   &   2\footnote{I am a footnote. But I am in wrong place.}   \\\bottomrule

Remember, that the footnote has to be moved with the floating environment (table) to another page if there is the need. – Johannes_B Mar 13 '14 at 12:20
@Johannes_B an H table isn't a float. – David Carlisle Mar 13 '14 at 12:21
@DavidCarlisle O right, but then again, H isn't a good idea (IMHO). – Johannes_B Mar 13 '14 at 12:26
@Johannes_B it's a bad idea (and it's my idea:-) – David Carlisle Mar 13 '14 at 12:27

Please always include a complete small document not just a fragment. Within a minpage footnotes are for that mini page and come at the bottom of there. That is the only function minipage is serving there.

Get rid of \begin{table}[H] and \begin{minipage} and just have the \tabularx then the footnote will work as intended,

Thank you for your answer. But I need the caption. So I cannot get rid of table – Vivian Mar 13 '14 at 12:23
@Vivian If you had posted an example with a caption I would have mentioned the (one line) capt-of package which would allow you to use \captionof{table}{my caption} – David Carlisle Mar 13 '14 at 12:33
Thanks. It works. – Vivian Mar 13 '14 at 12:37
You also have the tablefootnote package: it is intended to work in case the \footnotemark/\footnotetextpair doesn't, and it cooperates with hyperref. – Bernard Mar 13 '14 at 16:13
