Equation Caption label includes equation (97 SR2)
I want my equations to be numbered so I can crossreference 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 crossreference (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 crossreference also works. But if I try moving the caption back into the paragraph, then the problem comes back.
Hope this makes sense.

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?
