APA requires all reproduced images (including tables) to be accompanied by an APA style copyright permission statement and a reference list entry (Lee, 2016). The copyright permission statement takes the form of a note that's included directly after the table. This will need to be typed in manually, following the examples in section 2.7.12 in the APA Referencing Guidelines.

As an in-text citation is not required for figures and tables but this is needed to generate a reference list entry in EndNote, you will need to edit this. After inserting your in-text citation, use the Edit Citation function and select "Show only in Bibliography" (Southern Cross University, 2017).

However, if your table consists of multiple sources, it may be more appropriate to include in-text citations instead of copyright permission statements. Please see this LibANSWER for more information:
