I don't have Track Changes turned on. I cannot accept all changes
because we have to retain the change tracking info to show what's been
done to the document. I work with Track Changes off, and use the Final
version so I don't have to deal with all the distractions of the
previous changes. But I've looked at them and there's nothing I can see
in those changes that would affect these tables.
I tried copying/pasting a working caption and that didn't help either.
Previously I tried moving the table to a new position, which did help
with a few of the tables earlier but this time, no joy. I even recreated
the table on the previous page and that didn't fix the problem either.
I'm completely stumped how THAT didn't work!

If all changes have been accepted, try turning tracking off and then
trying the cross referencing again.
Another thing you can try is deleting the caption from one of the items
that are missing, copy/pasting in the caption from one that is working
and then renaming it. I don't know exactly why this works, but
sometimes it does.

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