    Hi,
    We have a document with many pics, we need to give Figure 1a,Figure 1b ...etc. whats happeining is when we start inserting caption first one shown up as Figure 1 which we modify as Figure 1a further we expect it show Figure 1b but Word97 shows Figure 2.
    Please let us know if the above is possible and steps to do the same

    If you want all the graphics to have the caption Figure 1 plus the letter, you can make a new label that says "Figure 1" rather than just "Figure." Add the numbering you want to that through the numbering button, choose the a, b, c, format. You can change the caption label to read Figure 2, and it won't affect the Figure 1 captions.

    If you are going to want the captions to do a lot of changing to Figure 2a, Figure 2b, Figure3a, etc., then I believe the captions can be based upon changes in heading styles (if you have been using styles consistently throughout). That can also be applied under the numbering choices. This might be the better way to set up a long doc.

    We do this exact thing a lot in our documents. The best approach is to write a specific style, for example Figure 1 "style" and Figure Sub "style". When you "dig to China" to set the numbering, you will need to link the styles to the number level under the "more" button. On the Figure Sub style, insert the level previous and then the "a,b,c" number next to it to auto number.

    If you simply use bullets and numbering to do this, the chances are that the numbering will eventually blow apart on you.

    Unfortunately, we have learned the hard way on this one.
