RE: Problems continuing table numbering in book

Hi Fred

Your method of placing tables could easily cause strange numbering
In my experience with FM 5.5.6 (never did it again) numbering in
seperate text frames depends on the order of placing them.
And it has numerous side effects, for instance when translating. So I
would strongly advice against it.
Why do you place tables in anchored frames?

But your problem can also be the result of a T:TABLE <n=1> somewhere in
file 2. 
Hidden in a anchoring tag? 
Somewhere as a override? 
Somewhere in a table itself?
Missing the word "TABLE", thus stating only T:<n=1>? 
Even more difficult to find: T:< =0> or T:< =1> (with the spaces!), so
the numbering does not show (but still resets...)

Are all tables in file 2 numbered correctly? If this is the case, you
only have to search after the last table in file 2... limits the search

hope this helps
