Two things to check:

1. Are any of the tables in text boxes? If they are, they won't show up
in the cross-reference item list. Move the tables to inline or convert the
text boxes to frames.

2. Do you have change tracking on? If any of the tables or their captions
are being change-tracked, they won't show up in the list until you accept
their changes.
