In my tablularx environment I have a footnote that I'd like to have placed at the bottom of the page. Using both the tabularx and tablefootnote packages all is well. However I get served a bit too much. Please find the code I use attached aswell as the result

As I can see the problem is tabularx because it tries to find out the best width for the table. That's the reason you get 3 different footnotes instead the wanted one.

I do not know package tabularx well so it could be, that there is a solution described in it's documentation.

As an workaround change tabularx to tabular and everything is working as wanted, see following MWE. BTW I did a little bit pretty printing with your table and changed the order calling your packages. As far as I know is package a4wide obsolet (see l2tabu, texdoc l2tabu).

MWE deleted, see MWE2 below.

EDIT:

With you new description added to your question it seems you will have long tables. So consider using package longtable. I changed my MWE and added a table version with tabular and longtable. Package longtable does not need package `` tablefootnote`.
