Defining Reference Targets
Footnote A footnote consists of a footnote reference (a superscript number or
symbol in the document text) and a note at the bottom of a page; footnotes are
typically used to include explanatory notes or bibliographic citations. To use a footnote
as a cross-reference target, you must create it using the Insert Footnote tool, which
you can find in the Footnotes group on the References tab.
Endnote Endnotes are similar in form and function to footnotes, except the notes
appear at the end of the document. To use an endnote as a cross-reference target,
create it with the Insert Endnote tool, also in the Footnotes group on the References
tab.
Equation To refer to a numbered equation, add a caption that includes a {SEQ
Equation} field code, as explained in the following section.
Figure To refer to a numbered figure, add a caption that includes a {SEQ Figure}
field code, as explained in the following section.
Table To refer to a numbered table, add a caption that includes a {SEQ Table} field
code, as explained in the following section.
Creating Captions for Equations, Figures, and Tables
In this topic, figures and tables are identified by a sequential number and caption. This
common arrangement is easy to create in Word. To create a caption, follow these steps:
1. Select the item for which you want a caption—an equation created with Insert
Equation, a picture or graphic, or a table. (In fact, you can apply a caption to anything
in a document; there’s nothing magical about equations, figures, and tables. It’s just
that Word has predeined caption handling for these common document elements.)
2. On the References tab, click Insert Caption (in the Captions group). The Caption
dialog box appears.
Be sure to add a space
after the number before
you begin typing your
caption text
