I am trying to generate tables similar to the one attached here. Basically, one main caption on the top, and some extra descriptions in the legend below the table.

EDIT: Thank you for the comment. Yes, I am looking for a legend for tables. The font size should be smaller and the width should be the same as the tabular material (similar to the image below).

    What you describe is generally called a legend, not a subcaption, to the tabular material. Please provide more information about how you would like the legend to be formatted. E.g., should it use a small font size than the main part of the table does? Should the width of the legend be the same as that of the tabular material? Any other requirements? Please advise. – Mico Mar 20 at 12:06

    Either use a \multicolumn or the threeparttable environment. – leandriis Mar 20 at 13:03

    With footnotes (tablenotes) definitely use threeparttable. – John Kormylo Mar 20 at 15:12
  • Do you have any news for us? Is the issue solved? How? – Mensch Aug 14 at 22:36
