Create a page reference bookmark for end of a table that will be updated if the table moves onto another page

agwalsh asked
If I want to set up a bookmark cross reference for the end of a table so that if the table moves onto another page, the bookmark will reflect that...what's the best way to do that?

Not quite sure what difficulty you are having. Select the end of the table - say the last cell - and bookmark it. Then insert a cross-reference to that bookmark.

The bookmark will stay with the table even if text is inserted or deleted earlier in the document


I did try that - but what happened when someone added on new cells afterwards is that it stayed with the cell it was inserted with, not the end of the table...and I want it to be linked to the end of the table...
What I came up with in the end was to add a piece of random text at the end of the table, colour it white and link the bookmark to that.
