This question already has an answer here:

I'm trying to add a footnote using \footnote{foobar}. But it won't show up in the footer of the document. I believe this is due to the fact that I manually changed the sizes of the layout of the document. Can anyone suggest a fix without changing the geometry of the layout. Here is the preamble to my .tex code




%the following code I think messes with footer width/height of the document.
\textheight=8.5in \textwidth=6.5in
\topmargin=-1in \oddsidemargin=0in

\begin{tabular}{c c c c c }
Course No. & Course title & Credits & Grade & Institution \\
Math 644    & Real Variables & 5    & A & LLM \footnote{foobar} \\
Math 456    & Algebra I                 & 3 & A & LLM \\
        & Total Transfer Credits     &\fbox{18} &   &   \\


Thanks in advance for all your help.

    There must be something else, because with the code you've provided I'm able to display footnotes. – karlkoeller Sep 7 '13 at 16:34
  • Don't you think that the geometry package is more suited to adjust page size? Anyway, that is not the issue here. I do not see any problem with footnote for the preamble you provided. Please make the file as minimal as possible. Then keep commenting out one package or command at a time. Perhaps you will find the offending one by the process of elimination. – Masroor Sep 7 '13 at 16:38
  • Ok I just realized that. But I am trying to add a footnote inside a tabular environment and the footnote does not show up in that case. I will edit my code to reflect this. – minibuffer Sep 7 '13 at 16:38

    If that is the case, please take a look at this, Footnotes for tables in LaTeX – Masroor Sep 7 '13 at 16:41
