HOW TO DO CITATIONS, BIBLIOGRAPHIES AND CROSS REFERENCES IN MICROSOFT WORD 2010 – PART 3

Microsoft Word 2010

This is a continuation of PART 2 of the same article.

Now it’s time to look at a different type of reference. What we’re going to go ahead and do is to add a caption to a figure and then we’re going to go ahead in building cross reference to that. So, first of all I want to click on the image I want to add a caption to. Now I’m going to go to my references tab and I’m going to insert a caption.

After the dialog box appears go through all the options and click OK.

Now you can see that underneath the picture is says what you have written in the dialog box previously which is our basic caption. Now I want to build a cross reference in my document. In order to do that I’m going to click after the caption name inside the document and put a print that says: “see” and then a space. Now what I’m going to do is come up to put a cross reference.

I can reference many different things, numbered items, headings, bookmarks, footnotes, endnotes, quotations and way down near the bottom of the list is figure and I could have it put in the entire caption or with only the label and number, but putting the entire caption it was a figure one, but what I want to do is actually want to just put the label so it’s going to put in figure one and click insert. And now it says: “see figure one” and now I want to put the page number, so I changed the insert reference to page number and shoes insert and choose insert and then close it up.
