 [MiKTeX] Table \ref problem From: Doran, Harold - 2009-01-26 15:17:31 I am having some trouble properly referencing tables when I introduce subsections. A minimal example is below that illustrates the problem. I think the issue is setting the counter, but I am having some difficulties understanding how it might work in this instance. \documentclass{article} \begin{document} \section{First Section} Table~\ref{tab:1} is properly referenced below \begin{table}[htb!] \label{tab:1} \begin{center} \begin{tabular}{cccc} \hline Grade & M1 & M2 & M3 \\ \hline 3 & -5457242.1 (48) & -5403792.1 (96) & -5384273.8 (144) \\ 4 & -5329033.6 (48) & -5291898.8 (96) & -5273390.8 (144) \\ 5 & -6839010.4 (73) & -6785206.2 (124)& -6763920.8 (175) \\ \hline \end{tabular} \caption{log-likelihoods} \end{center} \end{table} \subsection{Problem is here} Table~\ref{tab:2} is not properly referenced below, but the table is numbered properly \begin{table}[htb!] \label{tab:2} \begin{center} \begin{tabular}{cccc} \hline Grade & M1 & M2 & M3 \\ \hline 3 & -5457242.1 (48) & -5403792.1 (96) & -5384273.8 (144) \\ 4 & -5329033.6 (48) & -5291898.8 (96) & -5273390.8 (144) \\ 5 & -6839010.4 (73) & -6785206.2 (124)& -6763920.8 (175) \\ \hline \end{tabular} \caption{log-likelihoods} \end{center} \end{table} \section{And the problem propogates} The table number is correct, but the reference is not Table~\ref{tab:3} \begin{table}[htb!] \label{tab:3} \begin{center} \begin{tabular}{cccc} \hline Grade & M1 & M2 & M3 \\ \hline 3 & -5457242.1 (48) & -5403792.1 (96) & -5384273.8 (144) \\ 4 & -5329033.6 (48) & -5291898.8 (96) & -5273390.8 (144) \\ 5 & -6839010.4 (73) & -6785206.2 (124)& -6763920.8 (175) \\ \hline \end{tabular} \caption{log-likelihoods} \end{center} \end{table} \end{document}

The \caption command should always be put *before* the \label command. Best regards, Jose Carlos Santos 
 Re: [MiKTeX] Table \ref problem From: Lothar Birk - 2009-01-26 16:09:11 Dear Harold, as a general rule place \label commands immediately AFTER the \caption command. If I am not mistaken, the numbering is created with the \caption command. Thus if you add the \label command before the \caption it will refer to the current set object which in your case is the \subsection.

You need to place the \label command AFTER the \caption command, but inside the environment of course. Cheers, Phil
