# CaptionLabels Collection Object

 Multiple objects CaptionLabels CaptionLabel

A collection of CaptionLabel objects that represent the available caption labels. The items in the CaptionLabels collection are listed in the Label box in the Caption dialog box (Insert menu).

## Using the CaptionLabels Collection

Use the CaptionLabels property to return the CaptionLabels collection. By default, the CaptionLabels collection includes the three built-in caption labels: Figure, Table, and Equation.

Use the Add method to add a custom caption label. The following example adds a caption label named "Photo."

``````CaptionLabels.Add Name:="Photo"
``````

Use CaptionLabels(index), where index is the caption label name or index number, to return a single CaptionLabel object. The following example sets the numbering style for the Figure caption label.

``````CaptionLabels("Figure").NumberStyle = _
wdCaptionNumberStyleLowercaseLetter
``````

The index number represents the position of the caption label in the CaptionLabels collection. The following example displays the first caption label.

``````MsgBox CaptionLabels(1).Name
``````
