# [Tugindia] Footnote in Table

Hi,

I am trying to insert a footnote in a table and I want footnote to appear at
the bottom of the same page. I also want footnote marker to be of symbol
(\fnsymbol).

But I am unable to get it.

I tried minipage command and it is giving me footnote at the end of the
table, but I want it to be at end of the page.

Also I am getting alpha numeric digits (a,b,c,d..) as footnote marker using
\begin{minipage} command, instead of *. I tried two different ways to get
\fnsymbol, but in vain.

\renewcommand{\thefootnote}{\fnsymbol{footnote}}

\setcounter{\fnsymbol{\value{footnote}}}

Please let me know how to define footnote in a table, which will appear at
the bottom of the page. I have two different tables in the same page and I
need one common footnote for both of them.

I have spent too much time browsing web to find the solution. But it seems
there is no such solution.

Sincerely,
