Oh and one more thing. I already have tons of bookmarks in the documents so
if I can possibly avoid having to have to make a bookmark for every
caption/table/figure, I'd be thrilled :)

Hi again everyone :)

Ok, so recently I used the helpful tips some of you sent to me about using
SEQ to number my captions for tables and figures. It worked out fabulously
and I am really happy with it! I used SEQ with some switches to reset and
continue my numbering and then saved the configurations as autotext entries.

Now, I am wondering, if there is any way to cross-reference/refer to these
tables/figures without using MS Word built-in version. The reason I ask is
because if you use the built-in version, it cross-references based upon a
"Reference type" which lists other types of info that you built using MS
Word's other built-in captions/headings/etc. So for whatever reason, only
one of my figures (the first one in the whole 100+ page document) is listed.
And I am not even sure why that is. Is there some sort of setting that told
Word that the one particular image happened to be a figure? I have no idea.

In any case, I would like to be able to cross-reference my SEQ-based
captions. Or to be more specific, I would like the places where I refer to
these tables/figures to update themselves whenever I add or remove a table
and update the fields... Usually most of my images/tables are right beneath
the part of the text I reference it.

If anyone has any good ideas, I'm all ears (or eyes in this case :p).

Thanks so much and for those of you taking an early weekend, Cheers and
have a great weekend!
