# Putting footnotes on same page as table that references them

I've got a `\tabularx` with two `\footnote` marks immediately followed by two `\footnotetext`. I would like them to show up on the same page, but tex is pushing the table to the following page making relating the footnotes to the table difficult. I tried `\samepage,` but that doesn't seem to keep them together. Thoughts?

Welcome to TeX.sx! A tip: You can use backticks ``` to mark your inline code as I did in my edit. Also, please, check if this question: Footnotes in tables? helps –  henrique Sep 27 '12 at 22:49
LaTeX really wants you to use a style such that the footnote text comes at the bottom of the table rather than the bottom of the page. The easiest way to get that is to put a minipage around the tabularx (but inside the floating table environment) to get the footnote text on the page of a float would require some serious hacking of the output routine. –  David Carlisle Sep 27 '12 at 22:57
