### errors with ctable

Hi,

I am writing my PhD thesis, and am trying to use the ctable package to construct a table. However I keep getting the following error message:

`! Package caption Error: For a successful cooperation we need at least version '2002/01/23 v 2.1' of package subfigure , but only version '1995/03/06 v2.0 subfigure package' is available.`

I have updated the subfigure package on MikTex, and am starting to pull mt hair out! Please could someone help?

Here is my preamble:

`\documentclass[titlepage,12pt]{report}\usepackage[dvips]{graphicx}\usepackage{subeqnar}\usepackage{xthesis} %DAL Thesis Style\usepackage{xtocinc} %Include Table of Contents as the first en\usepackage[psamsfonts]{amssymb}\usepackage{multicol}\usepackage{lscape}\usepackage[square]{natbib}\usepackage{subfigure}\usepackage[centertags]{amsmath}\usepackage{amsfonts}\usepackage{amssymb}\usepackage{amsthm}\usepackage{newlfont}\usepackage{multirow}\usepackage[version=3]{mhchem}\usepackage[vmargin={3.0cm,2.5cm},hmargin={3.8cm,2.5cm},nohead]{geometry}\usepackage{array}\usepackage{xspace}\usepackage{xkeyval}\usepackage{amstext}\usepackage{siunitx}\usepackage{amsmath}\usepackage{caption}\usepackage{ctable}`

And here is my ctable:

`\ctable[cap = The scientific instruments onboard the MetOp-A satellite.caption = The eleven scientific instruments onboard the MetOp-A satellite, including the IASI. Further details on the other eight instruments can be found on the ENVISAT website: \url{http://www.eumetsat.int}.label = tab:MetOp,]{cc}{  \tnote[a]{Also flown on the NOAA satellites}         \tnote[b]{The eight instruments for observing the planet}         \tnote[c]{Communications and support services}         {                                                                                            \FL           & Instrument                                                                     &   Application                                                                                                      \ML           & GRAS (Global Navigation Satellite System Receiver for Atmospheric Sounding)[b] & A Global Positioning Satellite (GPS) that provide stratospheric and tropospheric temperature and humidity profiles.      \\           & IASI (Infrared Atmospheric Sounding Interferometer)[b]                         & An interferometer used to provide atmospheric emission spectra to derive temperature and humidity profiles with high vertical resolution and accuracy.                                                                \\           & HIRS (High resolution Infrared Radiation Sounder-4)[a][b]                      & a 20-channel infrared scanning radiometer that perform operational atmospheric sounding to provide calibrated vertical profiles of temperature and humidity, and information on clouds.                      \\           & AVHRR (Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer-3)[a][b]                       & A multipurpose imaging instrument used for global monitoring of cloud cover, sea surface temperature, ice, snow and vegetation cover characteristics.                                                        \\           & MHS (Microwave Humidity Sounder )[a][b]                                        & Designed to collect information on various aspects of the Earth's atmosphere and surface, in particular, atmospheric humidity at various altitudes, including atmospheric ice, cloud cover and precipitation.      \\           & AMSU-A (Advanced Microwave Sounding Unit A1 and A2 )[a][b]                     & A multi-channel microwave radiometer that will be used for measuring global atmospheric temperature profiles and provides information on atmospheric water in all of its forms.       \\           & A-DCS (Advanced Data Collection System-2)[a][c]                                & A data collection relay system.      \NN           & S \& R (Search and Rescue Satellite)[a][c]                                     & The Search and Rescue Satellite Programme collects accurate and timely distress alert data and location information and distributes this to search and rescue authorities.      \\           & ASCAT (Advanced Scatterometer)[b]                                              & The prime objective of ASCAT is to measure wind speed and direction over the oceans.      \\           & SEM (Space Environment Monitor)[a][c]                                          & A multi-channel, charged-particle spectrometer that provides measurements to determine the intensity of the Earth's radiation belts and the flux of charged particles at the satellite altitude.      \\           & GOME-2 (Global Ozone Monitoring Experiment-2)[b]                               & GOME-2 will map concentrations of atmospheric ozone as well as nitrogen dioxide, sulphur dioxide, other trace gases and ultraviolet radiation      \\}`

Hi Sam,

sam.illingworth wrote:! Package caption Error: For a successful cooperation we need at least version '2002/01/23 v 2.1' of package subfigure , but only version '1995/03/06 v2.0 subfigure package' is available.

This means it's definitely v2.0 (from 1995) of the subfigure package which was loaded.

Maybe there is an old subfigure.sty within your documents folder? Or within a private TeX folder? Both would prevent TeX from taken the actual one from MikTeX.

If you take a look at your documents log file you'll see where TeX has loaded subfigure.sty from. You should find something like this there:

`...(C:\Programme\MiKTeX\tex\latex\subfigure\subfigure.styPackage: subfigure 2002/07/30 v2.1.4 subfigure package...`

HTH,
Axel

Axel,

What a wonderful person you are, I did indeed have an old subfigure.sty file in my directory, and all is now well with the world again. Thank you so much for your help.
