Repairing a Warped Table

I just bought a wood table a couple months ago and the middle of the table where it opens is warping. What can I do to fix it?
Thanks.

According to my dad, an old carpenter: if the wood has a wow or is becoming concave, turn the dipped side to the sun. Leave until the sun has drawn it out flush. Other problems can sometimes be fixed with steam and weights.

Is this a new table? If so, contact the store where you purchased it. They should replace it. If they won't do so, contact the manufacturer.

If it is an old table, siris has a good suggestion.
