# Chapter table numbering for chapters with numberless headings [closed]

I have a chapter heading Annex without numbering.

I want to number tables with A.1, A.2... although the chapter heading is not named A Annex...

How can this be done? Why is this so cumbersome?

There is a contradiction in your request, because you need a numbering "A" in your table caption, but don't want to use it. So I propose to create a numbering of your heading Annex, use it to number your tables, but hide it in your heading.

1. Create Character Style "Invisible" with a Font Effect > Font Color to white for instance
2. Add numbering to your heading: Tools > Outline Numbering > Numbering, Level 1, Number = A, B, C, ..., Character Style = Invisible
3. Insert Table, right click > Caption > Options, Level = 1
