Word 2003: Table of Figures

Word 2003: Table of Figures

A Table of Figures is, quite simply, a list of any captions you’ve inserted in your document and their associated page numbers.

Before you can create your Table of Figures, you must enter captions throughout your document that Word can pull from to create your full table. You see, Microsoft Word won’t know what references to place in a Table of Figures unless you mark them throughout your document first by adding captions.
