    By default, a table of contents lists the paragraphs formatted with the Heading 1, Heading 2 and Heading 3 styles. If you apply a specific style to the table and figure captions, you can include that style in the table of contents: click in the TOC, then select Insert | Reference | Index and Tables. Activate the Table of Contents tab and click Options... Scroll down the list of styles until you see the style used for captions, and enter the level you want - 1 for top level, etc. Click OK twice.
    You can also create a separate list of figures or tables, in the Table of Figures tab of the same dialog.

    Hi Hans- I went to Insert-Reference-Index and Tables-Table of Contents-Options and the available styles (Balloon text, Comment subject, Comment text, Document map, Footer, Header, heading 1-9, List bullet 2, Normal +14 pt) does not contain Captions as an option on the list. Thank you.

    Click in the caption for one of your tables or figures. Which paragraph style does it use?

    You will have to apply the Caption style to each and every one of your table and figure captions.
    The Caption style is usually not displayed until you have used it. To apply it the first time:
    - Click in a caption.
    - Hold down the Shift key and click the dropdown arrow in the Style dropdown on the Formatting toolbar. (You can release Shift when the list is displayed)
    - Scroll up until you see Caption and select it.
    - Hopefully, you'll see Caption from now on in the Style dropdown and in the Styles and Formatting task pane.
    When you have applied the Caption style, you should be able to select it in the options for the TOC.

    Re: Table of Content (2003)

    I tested your suggestion and it does accept as a caption but the font changes from Arial to Times New Roman, the font size went from 12 to 10, and the caption aligned from center to left?? Is that correct??

    TIA

    Apparently, that is the definition of the Caption style. You can change it as follows:
    - Activate the Styles and Formatting task pane.
    - Right-click the Caption style.
    - Select Modify from the popup menu.
    - Simple modifications can be applied in the Modify dialog.
    - For more advanced tweaking, click the Format dropdown and select the item that you want to modify (Font, Paragraph, ...)
    - When done, click OK. The changes should be applied to all paragraphs formatted with the Caption style.
