I can't seem to pinpoint the problem with the table below and would appreciate some help. Something simple I am sure, but I can't see it...

\documentclass{article} 
\usepackage{ctable}

\begin{document}

\ctable[
caption = Summary of model characteristics.,
label = tab:modelSummary,
doinside=\scriptsize,
pos=h
]{lllllll}{
\tnote{For UK grid.}
\tnote[b]{ENTEC emissions are used for shipping.}
\tnote[c]{Based on analysis of extracted `baseline' air-masses.}

Gives:

  • The problem is with the \tnote[c] command on the Eulerian Mace Head line. Deleting that command allows compilation. – Steven B. Segletes Apr 9 '13 at 12:34
  • The page tex.stackexchange.com/questions/56683/… indicates that \tnote is defined in a package called threeparttable, which you are not using. Including it allows the table to compile, but it changes the table appearance somewhat. – Steven B. Segletes Apr 9 '13 at 12:41

The problem is the line

name    & Eulerian   & Mace Head\tnote[c] & UM          & STOCHEM      & $\approx$10? & NAEI/EMEP \NN

you need to change \tnote to \tmark:

name    & Eulerian   & Mace Head\tmark[c] & UM          & STOCHEM      & $\approx$10? & NAEI/EMEP \NN
