Tables are objects that are not part of the normal text, and are usually "floated" to a convenient place, like the top of a page. Tables will not be split between two pages.

The optional argument [placement] determines where LaTeX will try to place your table. There are four places where LaTeX can possibly put a float:

• h : Here - at the position in the text where the table environment appears.
• t : Top - at the top of a text page.
• b : Bottom - at the bottom of a text page.
• p : Page of floats - on a separate float page, which is a page containing no text, only floats.

The standard report and article styles use the default placement [tbp].

The body of the table is made up of whatever text, LaTeX commands, etc., you wish. The \caption command allows you to title your table.
