# table with blank caption but table label

If I don't put a caption on my table, I don't get the "Table 2.2" label underneath it. If I add a blank caption, I get "Table 2.2:". How do I get rid of the ":"?

I am using memoir and threeparttable. Within the threeparttable, I am using a tabular, but I don't think that matters.

No need to load extra packages; memoir is a very versatile class that offers its own features, in this case, \captiondelim:

\documentclass{memoir}

\begin{document}

\chapter{Test Chapter}
\begin{table}
\centering
\rule{2cm}{2cm}
\captiondelim{}
\caption{}
\end{table}

\end{document}


Remark: in fact, loading caption with the memoir class triggers a warning:

Class memoir Warning: You are using the caption package with the memoir class. This may cause unexpected or inconsistent results if you use any of memoir's captioning facilities.

add \usepackage{caption} in the preamble. It should automatically remove the colon before empty captions.

Thank you, this works. It's surprising that memoir doesn't automatically include caption. Does caption interfere with ccaption, which is automatically included by memoir? –  Neil G Mar 18 '13 at 22:43
I didn't use the ccaption or memoir packages before and my undestanding of LaTeX in general is still limited... If i had to guess, i'd say it depends on which you include first. –  barghest Mar 18 '13 at 22:52
