Pinned topic Creating Hyphen Captions in RPE Word Export

‏2010-09-09T18:58:28Z |
All,

I thought this would be good to share with the group. We were recently trying to make captions for figures and tables read with a hyphened number to include the Section and then a sequential number e.g.

Figure 1-1 Blah Blah Blah
Figure 1-2 Blah Blah Blah
Figure 2-1 Blah Blah Blah

Here's the solution for that little slice of RPE fun time in the attachment :-)

    Oops!!

    Correct Attachment here.

    The trick to this is all in the field codes for each caption number.

    Please note that the table and Figure codes are slightly different for the second number... also, this will only work if you're using headings, otherwise Word is going to tell you there's an error until you add one.

    Cheers,

    Hello,

    I know your Comment is long ago, but can you tell me, which field codes I should insert in the "Field -> field Code" and in the "Table Caption -> field Code", when I want the Captions like

    Table 1-1
    Table 1-2
    Table 2-1

    I cannot open your attachments, I always get an error.

     

    Cheers,
