7.9. Cross-References

Long, technical, or scholarly documents, frequently contain phrases like "see Chapter 12" or "see "Figure 8," on page 100." These are cross-references—words that refer the reader to another place in the document. Of course, you can always type your own cross-references—but what a mess you'll have when you decide to cut a few pages from the first chapter, and all 1,424 of your cross-refs now point to the wrong page numbers!

Word stands ready to create smarter cross-references that update themselves no matter how you edit your document. What starts out saying "See page 24" will change automatically to say "See page 34" after you insert a 10-page introduction.
