If the table legs remove from the floor where that bolt is...you can try the 2 following suggestions:
1. Wrap as many layers of WHITE TEFLON TAPE
(the tape to seal threads, like your water heater drain plug) and be liberal enough to make a thick enough 'bandage/gasket the width of how much of the table legs enters the floor mount. That will stop all squeaks, if it is leg/mount generated.
2. for a really pesky squeak, you can try wrapping a tensor bandage around the same (as above, ) try that as a 'stop squeak gasket'.
If the squeak is coming from the legs where they attach to the underside of the table, ...simply add (as laid out above) layers of white Teflon tape, where the table legs insert into the bottom holders of the table. That should do it for any squeaks....Teflon can't be beat as a buffer 'gasket' between two abrading or rubbing (through movement/road travel surfaces...
