Subject:Re: Numbering graphics in Word From:"Zen C" <zenizenc -at- gmail -dot- com> To:"Edgar D' Souza" <edgar -dot- b -dot- dsouza -at- gmail -dot- com> Date:Wed, 8 Aug 2007 08:15:25 -0400
ED, I had looked up the help file before I posted the question and I did
exactly as it said.I was ignoring a very minor detail for headings but
sorted it out. With regards to graphics it was all set up right, but the way
I tested it to make sure it was working was wrong. I know silly me, my
brains were switched off.
Anyways thank you all for your feedback.
Have a great day!
