You can add a caption to any picture, table, or equation in your document. You can also have Word automatically insert captions for some items. In addition, you can change the numbering format or change the label title...

Add a caption
Every caption is composed of a label and a number. You can add new labels and change the numbering format. Captions for each kind of object can be numbered sequentially. For example, you can have Figure 1, Table 1, Table 2, Table 3, Figure 2, Table 4, and so on.

In your document, select the item that you want to add a caption to.

On the Insert menu, click Caption.

NOTE: The caption label that you select is automatically inserted into the Caption box. This text can't be edited. To create a new label, click New Label, and then type your label text in the Label box...
