automatically number images in word

(1/3) > >>


I have a word text document and have inserted various images in it

now I would like to add a caption to each image like Figure 1, 2, 3, etc

is it possible to do it automatically?


your best bet with all these automation requests in office is to spend a little bit of time learning VBA.

It really isn't that hard and MS include a handy macro recorder to get you started

VBA might be able to do that, but it won't be easy

first, it needs to go through all the document and scan for images (I need to know the command to identify images and go to through the whole document)
then I need it to insert after every image an incremental text (like Figure 1,2,3,etc) which is not easy too

I am not saying it's difficult, but for someone who doesn't know it's not straightforward

In Word 2010 you can find that option under "References" - "Insert caption".

I played alot with that, but couldn't figure out how to do it
please note I want to number the images of a document AFTER I have inserted them all
