Hello, 

 

I editing some word documents made by some coworkers and they have a series of tables and figures that are all named "Table XX:" or "Figure XX:" were the XX are actually two "X" characters. I need to go through and renumber them so that the first table will become "Table 1:" and the second table will be "Table 2:". I would also need to change all the figure names too. Is there a way of doing this in word? 

 

Thanks in Advance,

Ryan Kung
