I draw a table, after the table I have a conclusion to write, but the conclusion comes always before the table while it must appear after it instead.

Here is the code I used for the table:

\begin{table}[!h]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{| l |l |l|}
......
\end{tabular}
\caption{Activity highlights }
\label{internshipheadlines}
\end{table}

For the conclusion:

\section{Conclusion}

How can I resolve this problem ? I even did \newpage after the table but it did not work. UPDATE:

    \begin{table}[H]
    \centering
    \begin{tabular}{| l |l |l|}
    \hline
    \textbf{Date}&\textbf{Main task}&\textbf{Description}\\
    \hline
    \multirow{2}{*}{March 3$^{\hbox{\tiny{rd}}}$ - March 07$^{\hbox{\tiny{th}}}$}&\multirow{2}{*}{Discovering HTTPCS}&I accustomed myself with HTTPCS  \\
    && scanner and what might be its needs.\\ 
    \hline
    \multirow{4}{*}{March 10$^{\hbox{\tiny{rd}}}$ - April 04$^{\hbox{\tiny{th}}}$}&\multirow{4}{*}{CMS security assessment}&Security assessment of various CMS\\
    &&types to track their vulnerabilities \\
    && some of which were published.\\
    \hline

   \end{tabular}
   \caption{Activity highlights }
   \label{internshipheadlines}
   \end{table}

And the conclusion:

\section{Conclusion}
Once activity highlights has been done, the following third and fourth chapters will be fully dedicated to the two major tasks I fulfilled and that I choosed to talk about.

    In order to influence the placement of floats, see How to influence the position of float environments like figure and table in LaTeX? – Werner Aug 5 '14 at 6:09
  • @Werner thank you, I tried the different symbols and their combination (!ht , for instance), but it could not help – user50475 Aug 5 '14 at 6:16

    You can put a \clearpage before \section{Conclusion}. – user11232 Aug 5 '14 at 6:24

    @begueradj: I have no problem with the H specifier and you code. No row is trimmed. As I re-wrote your table using tabularx, but it's a little off-question, is there a link where I could upload it so that you see what happens ? – Bernard Aug 5 '14 at 11:58

A simple way is to put the following (from placeins package) immediately prior to your conclusion section:

\FloatBarrier %keep floats out of the next section
