Tables not appearing in cross-reference dialog box

I have a Word document created in Word 2007.  This document contains 40 tables.  Several of these tables do not appear in the Insert Cross-reference dialog box and several appear more than once. All of the table captions were created in References>Insert Caption.  The captions appear above each table but never in the Insert Cross-reference dialog.   The captions are not in text boxes but in text. The document also contains headings. The table captions do appear when I create a List of Tables.

I am working in Track Changes mode, but the captions that are not appearing are not marked as changes. I have also saved the document, exited and reopened the document. In addition I opened it on another machine. I also deleted and reinserted the captions. None of these actions corrected the problem.

Is there a way to force the list that appears in the Insert Cross-reference dialog to refresh?

You could try copying the open document (Ctrl+A, Ctrl+C) and pasting it to a new blank document. That can force Word to rebuild the document.

I merged the document into a new document and that worked. Thanks.

Word documents can get corrupted. That is my favourite way of sorting them out.
