I am attempting to add a caption to a non-float environment.

The following is a MWE of how I'm trying to do it:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{caption}
\begin{document}
\begin{tabular}{l|l}
     hello & world
\captionof{table}{my table}
\end{tabular}
\end{document}

However, this is not working for me.

What am I doing wrong?

The \captionof command must go outside the tabular environment. You may put tabular plus \captionof inside a minipage environment to avoid a page break between the table and its caption.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{caption}
\begin{document}
\begin{minipage}{\textwidth}
\centering
\begin{tabular}{l|l}
     hello & world
\end{tabular}
\captionof{table}{my table}
\end{minipage}
\end{document}
