    guys i have been using word for mac 2011 for a couple of months but hit a real issue. I have automatically made my table of contents and that works fine but i can't insert a table of figures. I have the figures numberd correctly but when i go to inset ->table of figure and then i say insert then it says do you want to update the entire field or cancel. If i hit cancel nothing happens. if i hit update contents then my table of contents gets replaced with the table of figures !!!! i need both! can anyone help?

    Sounds like the position of the cursor where you want to insert your table of figures is inside the table of contents. You can't do that. Move it out of the toc and it will work properly.
