Just like the table of contents, Microsoft Word can be used to automatically generate both a list of tables and a list of figures. Automatic generation of these lists has the same advantages as automatically generating the table of contents:
- You don't have to manually type the list of tables or the list of figures
- You don't have to go back and edit the lists if any of the figures or tables changes pages. A couple of clicks and Word will automatically update the list of tables or the list of figures for you.
Below is a tutorial demonstrating how to create the list of tables and the list of figures.
