dear all,

I've had some problem making up a clear subject line and stil am in

My documents have often various tables and charts embedded via the



While explaining my tables/charts I'm mentioning actual numbers (as  
listed in the tables) in my text. Is it somehow possible to create a  
list of numbers in my latex document and have them called via a  
reference in my text? This would enable me to run a somewhat related  
scenario in my numbers and udpate both my tables with numbers and have  
all numbers changed in the text as well.

I was thinking this should be possible while using \labels, \ref but  
for the moment can't stretch my mind to find a solution.

Thanks for any reply,
