Jim, I had an instance where I had to replicate a published report, and that report had Tables with footnotes as part of the regular footnote sequence. In FM this was not possible so I faked it as follows. I created a real footnote in the anchor paragraph for the table, and coloured the in-text footnote number white so it wouldn't show. Then I added a superscript number (same as the footnote number) in the table to make the reader think this was the real reference.
