The fancyhdr package provides tools for solving this problem and the
documentation comes with many examples. Below is a short demonstration:

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fancyhdr}
\pagestyle{fancy}
\cfoot{\iffloatpage{}{\thepage}}
\begin{document}
Here's a little text before we get to the table. The table is
forced on a page of its own with the \texttt{p} specifier.

\begin{table}[p]
\centering
\rule{5cm}{10cm}
\caption{Rules rule!}
\end{table}
\end{document}
