I am trying to place a Table caption above a table in Word 2010. It shows correctly in the insert caption box, but when it appears on the screen there is no number and no hyperlink colour. The word Table and the caption text appears, but no number? Why? How can I get my numbers to appear?

Try updating the labels by pressing CTRL+A and then F9. If that does not work, show field codes by pressing ALT+F9 and see if the field structure is there. It should look something like this: Table { SEQ Table \* ARABIC }

I Have the same problem as the above. Showing field code does not work as caption is not being inserted as a field that can be updated... –  BiGXERO Mar 19 at 22:44
