    Equation Caption label includes equation (97 SR2)

    I want my equations to be numbered so I can cross-reference them. The equation itself is left aligned, followed by a tab, then the Equation Number is right aligned. eg
    D=2 Eq. 1
    I used Insert Caption Equation to insert the caption "Equation" after the tab. (I also tried creating a new caption Eq. 1. Neither work)
    When I try to insert a cross-reference (or when I create a table of contents for the equations), instead of getting just Eq. 1 or Equation 1, I get the whole equation eg D=2 Eq.1
    If I select the whole paragraph that is the equation, and insert a caption below, then the words "Eq. 1" appear in the following paragraph, and the cross-reference also works. But if I try moving the caption back into the paragraph, then the problem comes back.
    Hope this makes sense.

    Re: Equation Caption label includes equation (97 SR2)

    Word expects the caption to be a whole paragraph, all by itself. Try creating the caption in a separate paragraph and then selecting the paragraph mark from the previous paragraph (the one with the actual equation in) and setting it to be Hidden in Format > Font.

    If you then turn off display of hidden text this should do what you want.

    Works beautifully, thanks.
    Is there an alternate way to create a sequential field that isn't a caption?

    There are many ways, easiest is probably to use a SEQ field.
