Default Caption numbers are wrong

I'm trying to insert 4 figures into a document, with caption numbers running 1, 2, 3, 4 from upper left, upper right, bottom left, bottom right.

When word 2010 does this it sets the numbers as 2, 3, 4, 1.

I have tried everything I can think of including putting the images into text boxes, using text wrapping and not, setting the page layout to two columns and whatever I do word screws up the numbers.

Any ideas? Please!!!

I _think_ Word will assign the numbers in the order the graphics were added
to the document. So try completely deleting them, and any blank paragraphs
before and after just in case, and add them in in the order you want the
numbers to go.

You could also put them in a table with no border lines.

Default Caption numbers are wrong

When caption numbers are in text boxes, Word assigns numbers based on the
relative location of text box *anchors*. Display object anchors (File tab |
Options | Display: "Object Anchors") and then drag the anchors so that they
are (1) attached to different paragraphs and (2) in logical order, meaning
that the caption that should have number 1 must be attached to (say) the
second paragraph, and the caption that should have number 2 must be attached
to a later paragraph.
