Adapted from Thorsten Donigs answer in Table and figure side-by-side with independent captions

The Caption correctly numbers the figure and table but how does the correct setup of the labels independently for the figure and the table for referencing in the text work in this example?


\DeclareCaptionLabelFormat{andtable}{#1~#2  \&  \tablename~\thetable}



\autoref{tab:table123} %will give Figure 2 instead of Table 1.

      Table head & Table head \\ \hline
      Some values & Some values \\
      Some values & Some values \\\hline
    \captionlistentry[table]{entry for table}
    \caption{some caption for both.}

  • @DavidCarlisle: captionlistentry probably increases the table counter.

You need to label the point at which the relevant counter is incremented, and tell hyperref you are labelling a table even though it is a figure environment.

\captionlistentry[figure]{entry for figure}
\captionlistentry[table]{entry for table}

    @MarcoDaniel yes I know, but people should test their MWE:( Sep 19, 2013 at 10:30
  • @DavidCarlisle: oops. (edited above now). the counter is correct now, but it still says "Figure 1" instead of "Table 1"

    @Dircandis did you copy rather than move the \label If you just have one for the table and one for the figure they should not clash Sep 19, 2013 at 11:23

    @Dircandis OK then the label for figure needs to be after \caption Sep 19, 2013 at 13:19
