    Figures and Table numbering (Word 2000/2002)

    I have a 300 page document with roughly 40 figures and 25 tables. I have worked on it predominantly in XP, but have made random edits in 2000. I noticed that the table of figures and table of tables are accurate, listing the 1-25 tables and their page refs and 1-40 figures and their page refs.
    When I scroll through the document, figure numbers begin incrementing in 2s (Fig. 37,39,40 (strange) 41, 43,45 etc.
    When I tried updating the fields in the document, the Table of Figures and Tables is still accurate, but now all of the tables have been renamed as figures, so now I have 65 figures. If I look at the field codes, they note {SEQ/figure...} and {SEQ/table...} appropriately.
    Any suggestions? I have no idea how to control SEQ number format when it's random like that.

    You could get similar behaviour if you enable track changes and set the options to view the final version only. Please check that you don't have Track changes enabled.

    We saw this here a while ago, but I don't remember what was causing it. If you view all the field codes, is it possible that there are hidden SEQ fields (h switch) in between the visible ones that are stealing the even numbers? Any other oddities in the codes? I think less is more with SEQ fields...
