Cross-reference table numbers in a sub-document

Using a master document setup, how do you reference a table number from one subdocument in another subdocument?

The table in the sub-document has a caption like "Table 4.2: A table containing everything"

And the reference should be "For any information see table 4.2" (only the number should be referenced, not 'table')

I know how to cross-reference in a master document setup. Referencing chapters works, but when I reference tables across subdocuments, I just get a blank field...
