When you create a document with figures and tables in Word, do you write it like this?
See the diagram above.
It is written in the following table.
The table on the next page shows the total results.
Although the preceding and following context will tell you which figure or table is being referred to, the following sentence would be more professional.
See Figure 2.
It is written in Table 1.
See Table 2 Results.
Using figure and table numbers in this way uniquely determines which figure or table is being referred to.
This article describes Microsoft Word’s ability to insert chart numbers.
insert a table or figure number
Draw it in a position that allows about four lines of text to be written on top.
If the “Figure” is not available in the Label, you can add the new label, click “New Label…” button, enter the label text and click “OK” button.
Refer to Figure Number
When referring to a figure number, use the cross-reference function instead of directly typing “Figure 1” or similar.
Create a table of contents for figures and tables
The Insert Table of Figures function can be used to create a table of contents for figures and tables.
In this article we inserted a figure number. The same procedure can also be used to insert table numbers and equation numbers. Also, when you use the cross reference function of a figure number, it is not simply inserted as a string, but is also a hyperlink, so you can jump to the referenced figure or table when you output it as a PDF.
In addition, when items are added in the middle of the document and their numbers are changed, they are also changed accordingly, thus preventing omissions when changes are made.
