Microsoft Word/Unwanted text in a table
I'm sorry I may be repeating a question.
I've created a two-column, two-row table rows with a picture in each cell. After I pasted each picture into the table, I inserted a caption under each picture. So the computer copied part of a paragraph into the table of figures when I need it to put only captions there. Since seem to remember that someone told me that, to solve the problem, I needed to insert a carriage return after each caption in the table. But those CRs didn't help. What mistake did I make? Thanks.
Bill, I am unable to duplicate what you are experiencing.
I see that you are copying and pasting images, not inserting them
So, I would ask where are you copying them from
Is there any data attached to the image when you copy
You are pasting in a table
You insert a caption for each photo
At this point you create a Table of Figures which results in unwanted text within the caption
You have hit a "hard return' or Enter after the caption
Have you "Updated" the table of figures? (Right Click, Update Field, Entire Table)
Not sure if there is a clue here that might help.
