tables - typesetting

conrad's picture

Hi all,

I am new to SW and I have a problem concerning the typesetting of tables. Usually they do not typeset in the location i place them in my .tex document. Just to mention an example : I start an Appendix, where first comes a section Header followed by a table. When i Typeset .tex document, the table appears before the Section Header. Any idea what i am doing wrong?

Thanks in Advance,
