# 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.

Any advice will be appreciated.

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
Sorry for my awkward expression. I am not good at English. I wrongly think "backref" means back refer. –  user22986 Dec 6 '12 at 7:12
I fail to understand content available on the link you given. I do not know which part of Tex code achieve the function I expressed. Especially, why there are two pages of words even though there are not many entering words in Tex. –  user22986 Dec 6 '12 at 7:36
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
