# Conflicting lstinputlisting and table reference number [closed]

I'm using this \lstinputlisting[float=h,frame=tb,caption= {Normal model},label= {lst:Norm}, language = {R}]{Model.glm1.txt}  and I've got a labelled table in the same chapter of my essay, but referencing both result in a conflicting reference number. How do I solve this problem?

For the lstlisting It was labelled Listing 4.1 and the table have got label Table 4.1. Referencing both each gives 4.1

• What is the conflict here? Both having the same reference number? – user31729 May 28 '17 at 8:07
• Exactly, both are having the same reference number. Though, clicking on each one of them direct me to the right table but I the reference number in both cases to be different. – Usman May 28 '17 at 9:19
• @Usman I don't understand the problem. If you have see listing~\ref{lst:foo} and table~\ref{tab:bla} then from the context it is clear if you mean the listing or the table, regardless if they have the same number or not. (You probably also have a section 4.1, haven't you? Is it a problem, too?) – clemens May 28 '17 at 9:32
• I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because the OP misunderstood numbering scheme of listings and tables. – Schweinebacke Jan 1 '18 at 14:52

Such ambiguities with respect to the referred entity can be solved by either manual specification of the related entity as Clemens suggested or use cleveref, for example, that has a built-in 'database' of counters:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{listings}
\usepackage{cleveref}

\begin{document}

See \cref{tab:nice} and \cref{lst:Norm}

\begin{table}
\caption{dummy table}\label{tab:nice}
\end{table}

\lstinputlisting[float=h,frame=tb,caption= {Normal model},label= {lst:Norm}, language = {C}]{helloworldexample.c}
\end{document}


helloworldexample.c

#include<stdio.h>

int main(int argc,char **argv)
{
printf("Hello World!\n");
return(0);
}
