I've been trying to find a satisfying solution to the footnotes-in-tables-problem for hours now. Nothing I come across seems to work the way it should. Still, in the tabularx package documentation it is stated that tabularx supports \footnote.

I've tried using the

\footnote{footnote text}

command in the tabularx environment, and it for sure shows the footnote in the table (hallelujah!), but not the footnote text (not so much hallelujah).

I've also tried

\footnotemark[footnote#]

with

\footnotetext[footnote#]{footnote text}

somewhere underneath the table, which works perfectly fine, except that you have to keep track of the counters yourself, which results in tragedy when you insert a normal \footnote elsewhere in the text on the page.

The best solution would be if one could have lettered footnotes in the table and numbered for the text, but \footnotemark does not support using letters as numbers.

So... does anyone understand how tabularx works with footnotes?

A MWE:

\begin{table}[!h]
\centering
\caption{Characteristics of the most common reactor types}
\label{tab:reactor-properties}
\begin{tabularx}{0.8\textwidth}{*{4}{L}}
\toprule
Type    & Fuel \footnotemark[1] & Moderator  & Coolant  \\
\midrule
LGR \footnotemark[2] & \ce{UO2}, enr. & Graphite, \ce{H2O}  & \ce{H2O}(\emph{l}) \\
\bottomrule
\end{tabularx}
\end{table}

\footnotetext[1]{enr. = enriched in \ce{^{235}U}, nat. = natural}
\footnotetext[2]{There were four such reactors at the Chernobyl plant at the time of the accident \cite{nuclear-energy}}

EDIT: The solution offered by David Carisle worked perfectly for a day or so. I have no idea why it stopped working, but both the footnote-text and references have stopped working in a minipage-tabularx-environment. A MWE:

This question came from our site for professional and enthusiast programmers.

    
You can just use \footnotemark and then \footnotetext{...} - you don't have to specify the footnote number. Moreover, tabularx saves \footnotetext in a token register to be recalled after the environment. A simple example shows that \footnotes in tabularx works. Would you be able to provide a small example that shows your problem (a minimal working example (MWE))? –  Werner Apr 10 '12 at 18:56
    
I ran your MWE unchanged and got footnotes see image in my updated answer –  David Carlisle Apr 13 '12 at 9:51
    
Besides parnotes, you may want to look at ctable or threeparttable. –  rdhs Apr 13 '12 at 17:27

Probably somebody understands tabularx:-)

The footnote in tabularx is designed to enable page footnotes with the text coming at the end of the page. If you are not seeing the text then most likely you have the table in some other box (such as a float) that inhibits footnotes whether or not they are in a table.

If you want table notes the standard latex way is to put the tabular in a minipage then the footnotes come at the end of the minipage.

Or you might prefer the code in this answer

\footnotetext numbering for many \footnotemark - automatic solution

Your edited MWE works for me giving footnotes:

enter image description here

the file list shows that your MWE loads 166 files, approximately all of them are not needed for this example, so it's too much to ask anyone to debug. I attach my list below. I would start by removing everything you are not using in that example the footnote push/pop from the other answer siunits (and all the l3exp code) in fact as far as I can see your MWE only uses tabularx then most likely you will get footnotes, then just put back the packages you think you need. If the footnotes go, it is a problem with that package.

Thanks for your reply! As far as I understand, I'm dependent on the float-environment of \begin{table} to get the table-caption (which is a must). I may be slow, but would the example you provided in the linked post work in a float environment? –  Holene Apr 11 '12 at 10:26
    
the float doesn't help get table notes, it just prevents page notes. So yes the explict footnote saving code in the other question would work, or tabularx as in your MWE if you went \begin{table}\noindent\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}\begin{tabularx.... so that the footntes from tabularx come at the end of the minipage, ie just under the tabularx –  David Carlisle Apr 11 '12 at 10:40
    
Is there any situation your solution wouldn't work? I've added the SIunitX package and now all my table footnotes have disappeared - that is, the footnotes are there but the explaining text is gone. References inside the tabularx-environment shows up as ?'s to. Help, please! Report due to tomorrow evening... :p –  Holene Apr 12 '12 at 17:05
    
Please edit your question to make a complete (small) document that shows the problem, then someone may be able to help –  David Carlisle Apr 12 '12 at 17:52
    
Edited! This one compiles =) –  Holene Apr 13 '12 at 7:28
