    Caption numbering (WORD '03)

    I have a 220 page WORD technical document. I am numbering figures and all is going well, until I get to figure 7.2-87 (about mid point of document). That figure is numbered fine. When I go to insert the NEXT caption for the next figure (which happends to be a different kind of graphic and I can't figure out what kind of graphic it is by looking at the properties...) this is what gets inserted for the caption:
    Figure 0 1: Figure 0 1: IVR Call Control and Dialog
    Of course, what I want is
    Figure 7.2-88 IVR Call Control and Dialog.
    Can someone educate me on what I've doing wrong? Thank You.

    Try the following:
    - Select the last correct numbering: Figure 7.2-87
    - Copy it to the clipboard (Ctrl+C)
    - Select the incorrect numbering: Figure 0 1: Figure 0 1:
    - Paste the clipboard (Ctrl+V)
    - Select the numbering you just pasted.
    - Press F9 to update it.

    Select the numbering.
    Press Shift+F9 to show field codes instead of field results.
    What do you see?
    You can press Shift+F9 to hide the field codes again.

    I believe this is the answer:
    (styleREF2s) (SEQ.Figure*ARABICs2)

    There was a block of text that was assigned heading 2 just above this next figure I could not get to number right. I changed it to normal style and voila, the next figure is now numbered right.
    Lesson learned?????
    NEVER HAVE MORE THAN ONE HEADING ASSIGNED BETWEEN CAPTIONED NUMBERING????
