# footnote, hyperref, tabular

I have many tables with footnotes inside and I need hyperref in my document. Now, the problem is that footnote in my tables does not point to the notes at the end of the page. It points to the first page or doesn't print at all. How I do to correct that ? Thanks for your help.

\documentclass[12pt]{book}
\usepackage{geometry}
\usepackage[latin1]{inputenc}
\usepackage[T1]{fontenc}
\usepackage[french]{babel}
\usepackage{hyperref}
\usepackage{colortbl,hhline} % au lieu de cline
\usepackage{footnote}
\hypersetup{pdfstartview={XYZ null null 0.95}}

\begin{document}
Titre
\newpage
\begin{savenotes}
\begin{table}[h!]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{|>{\raggedright\arraybackslash}m{7cm}|>{\raggedright\arraybackslash}m{8cm}|}
\hline
un\footnote{note1}&deux\footnote{note2}\\
un\footnote{note3}&deux\footnote{note4}\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{Première table}
\end{table}%
\end{savenotes}

\end{document}

You can solve the problem by these three steps:

1. Add \usepackage{tablefootnote} after your last \hypersetup{...} command, see http://www.ctan.org/pkg/tablefootnote.
2. Replace the \footnote commands in the table with \tablefootnote commands.
3. Remove the \begin{savenotes} and \end{savenotes} before/after the table.

Since version 1.1a tablefootnote also supports the optional argument of the \footnote command, for example \tablefootnote[2]{text}. Because version 1.1a has a bug, it is advisable to use a newer version (probably the most recent one).

tablefootnote package does not address the optional argument of \footnote command: \tablefootnote[2]{text} –  Vafa Oct 25 '12 at 0:40
@Vafa: That was the case for older versions indeed. The recent version(s) support the optional argument. –  Stephen Feb 2 at 18:28
