Subject:Yet another Word question From:"Kahn, Stacey" <skahn -at- WB -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 26 Dec 1995 15:05:01 U
I'm using Word for a long document. Instead of the so-called Master Document
feature, I'm using RD (reference document) fields, so far without problem.
I've got ten chapters, each of which is page-numbered separately in
chapter-page format. Figure and table numbers are also supposed to be resetting
for each chapter.
Problem is, some chapters correctly reset the figure numbers (e.g., 3-37,
3-38; 4-1, 4-2, etc) while others increment the chapter number correctly but
don't reset the sequence number (e.g., 3-37, 3-38, 4-39, 4-40).
