Chapter numbers in caption



I have a problem in that I need to have my chapter headers read exactly
"CHAPTER <ROMAN NUMERAL>" with the actual chapter title below it with not
number. Example:

I need my subsequent figure and table numbers to includ the chapter number.
When I look at their field codes, I see:
Table {STYLEREF 1 \s}-{SEQ Table \* ARABIC \s1}

In chapter 1, the Table shows "Table 0-1". How can I increment the chapter
number in the caption the first time, so it reads correctly as "Table 1-1"?

Any thoughts?

Use the Heading 1 style (with CHAPTER # as the auto numbering format) for
your chapter number and a different style for the chapter title (new
paragraph). You should then be able to reference the numbering of the
Heading 1 style in your captions, cross-references, etc.
