    Caption numbering (WORD '03)

    I have a document that starts with section 5 (outline number) that is heading 1 and continues down into heading 3. It has figures throughout.
    Document caption numbering was fine last time I was in the docuemnt! Then, developer came along and added content.
    NOW, captioning numbering is all fouled up!
    1. What is the likely culprit that has caused the captioning numbering to be screwed up? Learning how to rescue myself from these instances is key here : )
    2. What is the most efficient method to fix it, or do I have to go to each caption and fix them one by one?
    When I go to the first one it is not inserting properly what it should be numbered!! It is inserting 0.1 instead of 5.1-1 (first figure needing to be captioned is in section 5.1 (heading 2).
    Styles are applied to all heading correctly.
    Thanks,

    What field code do you see if you right-click the incorrect caption number and select Togle Field Codes from the popup menu?

    Figure 0 1: {StyleRef2s} {SEQ Figure*ARABICS2}
    Interestingly, only the FIRST caption is fouled up, rest are OK!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Apparently, the first field has become converted to fixed text - there are no field brackets any more. You will have to create the first field anew, or copy and paste it from another location.

    Why then, when I go and do a toggle field codes on a caption that IS numbered correctly, it is the same
    {STYLEREF2s} {SEQ Figure*ARABICS2}

    I have now fixed the fouled up one...Thanks! for all the help : )

    The field codes are OK, but the text "Figure 0 1" is not a field. How it got there, I can't tell you.
