This question already has an answer here:

Can someone help me out please? I am writing my cv, and I need a normal, standard footnote. Here is the heading:

\documentclass[a4paper,10pt]{article}
\usepackage{eurosym}


\usepackage[bookmarks=false]{hyperref} %make sure it comes last of your loaded packages
%\usepackage[dvips,bookmarks=false]{hyperref} %make sure it comes last of your loaded packages
\hypersetup{pdfstartview=FitH,pdfhighlight=/O,colorlinks=true,urlcolor=red,linkcolor=red}

\oddsidemargin = 21 pt
\evensidemargin = 21pt
\textwidth = 410 pt

\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\usepackage{lastpage}
\lhead{Henrique GOMES\hspace{.5em}}
\chead{}
\rhead{Curriculum \hspace{.5em}   -- \hspace{.5em} Sep 2013}
\lfoot{}
\cfoot{}
\rfoot{{Page \thepage ~of \pageref{LastPage}}}
\renewcommand{\headrulewidth}{0.5pt}
\renewcommand{\footrulewidth}{0pt}



\setlength\parindent{0in}

And the footnote is in a tabular environment:

\begin{tabular}{ll}
aaaa\footnote{aaaa}
\end{tabular}

    Please post something compilable instead of just sniplet. – daleif Oct 16 '13 at 14:48
  • Besides, footnotes does not belong inside tables. That is table notes, see threeparttable and the extension threeparttablex. – daleif Oct 16 '13 at 14:50
  • As Lars (aka. daleif) says, please provide a minimal working example. – Svend Tveskæg Oct 16 '13 at 14:57

    Are you really sure you want to use footnotes in a CV? I wouldn't. – egreg Oct 16 '13 at 15:03
  • @egreg It depends on the footnote. A short one (a website URL for example, when it's relevant) is fine. Long ones, better not. :P – Alenanno Oct 16 '13 at 15:21

It is quite difficult to use \footnote inside a floating environment, such as {figure} or {table}, because LaTeX can’t know where the float goes early enough to find out the right page for the footnotes. There are some ways to add a footnote, however.

use a {minipage}

The {minipage} has it’s own footnotes an then the footnotes will flow together with you figure/table.

minipage footnotes

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
document text
\begin{figure}
    \begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
        \begin{tabular}{ll}
            A & B\footnote{Text} \\
        \end{tabular}
    \end{minipage}
\end{figure}
document text
\end{document}

help LaTeX by separating footnote number and text

You can set the footnote number with \footnotemark and then outside of the float the text with \footnotetext{<Text>}. In this case you must care thet the float environment and \footnotetext appear on the same page.

\documentclass{article}

\begin{document}
document text
\begin{figure}
    \begin{tabular}{ll}
        A & B\footnotemark \\
    \end{tabular}
\end{figure}
\footnotetext{Text for the last footnote}
document text
\end{document}

But this will only work for a single pair of mark and text, i.e. you cant use two \footnotemarks without the \footnotetext for the first note between them.
