Howdy,

The {tabular} environment, which builds'' the table is surrounded by a

\begin{table}[htbp]
\centering
...
\end{table}

which make it a float. Remove that and it won't float. But then you'll have
to surround the {tabular} with a {centering} environment to get it centered
(there are other ways to do that but that is the obvious one.

Good Luck,
