### table in a paper

Hi. I am fairly confused about putting a table in a paper (article). I have followed the usual instructions but the table seems to be always centered vertically on the page

How should be answer this? We do not know, what you are thinking which are the usual instructions. We do not know, what you are doing. We even do not know, if you are talking just about a table in the LaTeX sense of a tabular:
\documentclass{article}\usepackage{mwe}\begin{document}\blindtext \begin{tabular}{lcr}this & is & an \\example & of & a \\tabular & without & sense\end{tabular} \blindtext\end{document}

\documentclass{article}\usepackage{mwe}\begin{document}\blindtext \begin{table}\centering\begin{tabular}{lcr}this & is & an \\example & of & a \\tabular & without & sense\end{tabular}\caption{An example}\label{tab:extab}\end{table} \blindtext\end{document}
