Word starts off with three basic captions that can be referred to using the
crossreference function: Equation, Figure, and Table. These captions are
identified by Word as "labels".

To create a new kind of label that can be referred to as a crossreference,
used for a table of contents, etc, you go to the Caption option on the
Insert menu, and click on the New Label button. Enter the name for your new
label, click OK, click OK. (You can delete labels as well from this window.)

Now when you go to the Crossreference option on the Insert menu, you will
see the name you entered in the New Label window. You can use your new label
just as you can use Figure, Table, or Equation.

Hope this helps! For detailed queries on how to use Word, I recommend the
