Dear All,

As it in the title, this problem drive me crazy.
Latex: in text, the table label is mixed with section label.  e.g. "please see Table ", actaully is the section where the table is.

Why there is no latex Question Area in experts-exchange??

could you post the code?
normally i would say you put the label not in the Tabular:
would give you the right thing. you are writing now, probably:

so your  \ref{label} is in the \section enviroment and not in the tabular.

to iskywalker: You are not correct: \label{text} should be always out side of "tabular" body while inside "table" body.   :(

Here is the code: (the problem should be some where else.)
"please see Table~\ref{table:t1}
\begin{table} [htp]
      \textbf{Terminal class} & \textbf{Wrapper cell type}\\
      SDI, SDO, RSDI, RSDO, DI, DO, FI, FO, CI & WC\_SD1\_COI\\
      CO & WC\_SD1\_COI\_G\\
      SI, SO & NONE\\
