    text boxes and table of figures (word 97)

    I'm putting together a table of figures... I started with the Insert /Index and Tables option and it gave me
    {TOC t "Caption" c}
    I had specified that the table of figures be generated from the style Caption and, when generated, all is right with the world... except....

    I have two figures that I had to change the pagination to landscape with the use of dreaded section breaks... For those captions I inserted a text box about where the caption should go (as the graphic is the only thing on the page) typed the caption text, changed the style in the text box to Caption and everything looked great...

    But... it won't show up in the table of figures. I gather that it's because those two captions are in text boxes but I can't figure out a way to make it read the text box.

    I've looked for special switches or something but came up empty. I suppose I could take out the text boxes and hit ENTER until I get to the line I want on the two landscape pages and type in the caption there but I was wondering if there was a way to get the TOF to acknowledge that there is a Caption style in a text box...
    is there?

    thanks
    have fun

    I believe that, if you convert the text box to a frame (right-click has it, I think), that they will then show in the TOC.

    <img src=/S/joy.gif border=0 alt=joy width=23 height=23> You're awesome! It worked! Silly thing.

    FYI it is accessed by right-click choose Format Text Box and it's on the Text Box tab.

    Thanks Dreamboat... you're dreamy.... <img src=/S/starstruck.gif border=0 alt=starstruck width=15 height=15>
