    caption numbering

    Is there any way to have Word number a multi-part figure as Figure 1 (part 1 of 2) - Figure 1 (part 2 of 2)? I have many multi-part figures and tables and have a real need to have the ability to have caption number in this way ...

    Re: caption numbering

    This is such a labour intensive task that I don't see any value in trying to do it with tricky SEQ fields. Sometimes it is just quicker to do it the old fashioned way and this is definitely the case here.

    Use the usual SEQ field for the Figure number and in the repeated figure field add a c switch to repeat the previous figure number. This will allow for automatic renumbering of the Figure number.

    Just type in the (Part x of x). This is never going to need to be automatic so don't bother.
