# backref for tables and figures [closed]

How to automatically locate the place referring to the table or figure when clicking the caption of table or figure, that is, backref for the table or figure. I know how to achieve this similar function for references using hyperref package.

That said, the comments in the second answer to that question indicate that the functionality of the obsolete `backrefx` package has been incorporated into the `backref` package, but I don't see how `backref` quite does what you ask –  GTK Dec 6 '12 at 6:54
The example code in Marcol Daniel's answer uses the `lipsum` package to generate some text to fill up the document. His final code allows you to add an `\xref` command at the end of the caption to provide backref type links. As there may be several places in the document that link to the same table, it does not make sense to make the caption in to one single link. –  Andrew Swann Dec 6 '12 at 9:44
