Thanks for the great suggestions. I checked but there are no text boxes
and no unaccepted changes.
Any other ideas?

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.

The problem now is that when I try to define a cross-reference to
certain tables, they don't appear in the Cross Reference dialog list of
tables. I've checked the captions and the caption styles, but I can't
find any difference between the tables that appear in the Xref list and
the ones that don't.
