    Caption numbering format

    Hello,

    How you guys? hope all great.

    I have question relate to caption numbering format, hope anyone can help.

    I have table/figure in word, and trying to set the caption, so i can create list of tables.

    Current table format numbering is 1.1 , i am trying change the number format with leading zero 1.1 to 1.01, 1.02, 1.03..etc.

    When i format do alt+F9 and change the format to : SEQ Figure \* ARABIC \s 1 \# "00"

    it show : ERROR! PICTURE SWITCH MUST BE FIRST FORMATTING SWITCH.

    Would be appreciate for any help.

    Thank you.

    Re: Caption numbering format

    When I change it to

    SEQ Figure \# "00" \* ARABIC \s 1

    it gets rid of the error, but it still doesn't give the formatting you want. I suspect that it is ignored and what you want to do isn't supported.

    What you want is not the convention used throughout the publishing industry. That is more like a convention for software version numbers. Why do you need that format?

    Re: Caption numbering format

    Hi,

    Thank you for your respond.

    Previously i have word document with table with two digits format, just curious to know if i can automatically set the number.

    I got reference on Google.

    But not sure how to do it.

    update:
    I tried: SEQ Figure \# "00"

    it works. however when i start new caption, it's not automatically update to SEQ Figure \# "00".
    I have to replace the code manually.

    Any advise?

    Thank you.
