View Full Version : OpenOffice table and figure numberer issue

Hey all,
I'm writing a report with tables and figures numbered via the Insert>Fields>Other option. I am referencing tables and figures in the text using the same fields. This requires editing the default field, which might be "Table +1", to simply "Table", so that every reference doesn't knock up the Table tally by one. This is handy because when I add tables and figures, all subsequent pre-existing tables and figures get knocked up a number.

My issue is:
When I Save As a .doc, every field, say the Table field, goes to Table +1, so that every reference is one higher than the previous.

Is there a way to work around this? I'm sharing the work with Windoze users, or it wouldn't be an issue.

Thanks in advance,

--Jared

Hi there ;)

Odds are you'll find better information on the OpenOffice.org forums:
