About where to leave a footnot in a table

Hi,
By default, the footnote will appear in the page buttom, when an ODS RTF procedure is used. How can I make the footnote appeared right beneath a table? Many Thanks.

Hi:
By definition, a footnote goes at the bottom of the page.

If you need something like a "caption" under a table, if you're using PROC REPORT, you can write the text with a LINE statement in a COMPUTE AFTER code block. Or, for other procedures, you can investigate the use of ODS TEXT= in order to place text under your table, but not at the bottom of the page.

If using one of the Markup, Printer or RTF outputs the style attribute of POSTTEXT works in some procedures.

My experience with ODS TEXT is that the text usually has two blank lines before the text but POSTTEXT is immediately after the table.
