    Please help!

    When I select Insert Caption from the toolbar, or right click Insert Caption, that field inserts a figure number, but the caption field (at the top) does not let me populate a figure title. I cannot enter data as I usually do. And, the figure number does not populate in this field as it normally does. This is an important document, and there are many users. We are all frustrated!

    Thank you for your expertise.

    In the caption dialogue box click the New Label... button and create your label, but don't include the numbering. The numbering ( or lettering if you choose that ) is automatically added to your "label" to create the "caption". That's why you can't directly edit the Caption text box. Word keeps track of the numbering for you.
