This line after the table is showing up on the previous page. How to display it after the table in a new line

-
A table is a floating object. It does not appear at the exact place you put it in the source code but rather at the next best position. This does not have any impact on the surrounding text. –  Carsten Thiel Jan 2 '11 at 19:13

try it this way.

\begin{table}[!htb]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{l l c l | l l c c}
One & Two  &  Three  &  Four  &  Five  &  Six  &  Seven  &  Eight\\
One & Two  &  Three  &  Four  &  Five  &  Six  &  Seven  &  Eight\\
One & Two  &  Three  &  Four  &  Five  &  Six  &  Seven  &  Eight\\
\hline
\end{tabular}
\caption{Derivation Table}
\end{table}


and by the way: The minipage is not needed.

Tried by taking the minipage out but still the last line shows up on the previous page rather than below the table –  Aku Jan 2 '11 at 20:08
then replace the figure environment with a minipage one and use captionof{figure}{...}, which needs package caption or capt-of –  Herbert Jan 2 '11 at 20:29
