Default How to caption my grahics

I've got several volumes I'm working on, using Word 2000. I'm done
inserting the graphics. I couldn't find a way to insert a floating
grpahic or even an anchored graphic and keep 1-4 sentences of caption
text with it. So I made a table, inserted the graphic into one cell,
and the text into another cell. Trouble is, I can't make tables
float, and I can't get text to flow around the tables.

Suggestions?

You can wrap text around a table: On the Table menu, click Table
Properties. Click the Table tab. Under "Text Wrapping", click
"Around", and then click OK.

A better choice, however, might be a frame containing the (inline) graphic
and caption.

Yes, but the OP was aware of and rejected that solution.

Thanks to both of you, I now have two more options to play with. With
several hundred graphics and captions, this should truly be fun!

I'll have to take back my previous reply (confused it with a
completely different thread). No frames are mentioned in the original
message. I'm sorry about that!

The best way to handle this depends on how your document looks right
now. If you have already inserted a lot of tables for the graphics and
captions, it would be easier to wrap text around those tables than to
replace them with frames. But if you haven't gotten started on the
table solution, it would be easier to select the caption and the
inline graphic and insert a frame around them (using the Insert
Frame button on the Forms toolbar).
