The following table is 2.1. for example:


But when I reference this table using \ref{thelabel} I only get the 2, not the whole table number.

How to get the label and the table number right?

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

Is the \label after \caption? Yes, you need \caption in order to be able to reference it properly. – Werner Dec 15 '11 at 15:26
Shame on me! Your hint was just right Werner, it pointed me to a stupid mistake. Sorry. Can be closed. – Meinzlein Dec 15 '11 at 15:29

The \label should go after the \caption in the float (table or figure) in order for the referencing to work properly.
