# [texhax] how to overwrite the default figure number

For example, I use the following code to include a figure in my text and
this is the 2nd figure in the text.

...

\begin{figure}[htp]
\centerline {\includegraphics [width=14cm, viewport=60 315 545 573,
clip] {fig2}}
\centering
\caption[]{}
\label{fig2}
\end{figure}

....

By default, LaTex will put "Figure 2:" under the figure.  What if I want to
change it to something like "Figure A.2:", how can I do it?

Thanks,

...Tao
