I have a table and I would like to move the notes to the table right?

Is this possible?

Tex Code:

\begin{table}[htbp]

\vspace*{-1in}\caption{Don't ask}
\begin{threeparttable}
  \centering
    \hspace*{-1in}\begin{tabular}{p{4.145em}p{4.145em}lp{4.145em}llp{4.145em}ll}

  • \begin{tablenotes}[flushleft] \setlength\labelsep{0pt} \item[]Note:...should work. (See also: tex.stackexchange.com/a/539880/134144)

  • Why is there an \hspace*{-1in} right before \begin{tabular}?

  • @leandriis thanks but this did not seem to work

  • @leandriis to move the table into the margin

    Please make your example code compilable. Also, why do you need to shift the table into the margin in the first place? The contents are most likely small enough that the table should fit into the margins. If you whish to have quite wide cells, why don' your entirely remove column 4 and 7? They seem to be identical to column 1.

As far as I can tell, you're abusing and misusing the threeparttable machinery. For one, you're not actually including the \caption directive -- one of the three formal parts of a threepartable -- in the threeparttable environment. Second, if your objective is to typeset a table that's considerably wider than the text block, you should go about this quite differently from what you show in your posting. Third, the primary purpose of the tablenotes environment is to typeset footnote text associated with \tnote directives; however, your code doesn't include any \tnotes.

I also don't understand why you employ fixed-width p-type columns instead of X-type columns (provided by the tabularx package).

The following screenshot shows two separate solutions that employ tabularx environments. The first uses a threeparttable environment (with \begin{tablenotes}[flushleft]); the second does not -- and thereby demonstrates that it's not necessary to deploy the threeparttable machinery in order to achieve your formatting objective.
