Hour 13. Working with Long Documents > Inserting Cross-References

Inserting Cross-References

If you are writing a manual or another type of reference document, you may want to include cross-references within the text to refer the reader from one part of your document to another. You could, of course, type these cross-references manually. As you revise your document, however, there is a good chance that the pagination, section headings, figure numbers, and so on will change, requiring you to update all of your cross-references. You can avoid this quagmire altogether if you insert the parts of your cross-references that will need updating as fields. This way, Word can update them for you as needed.

Furthermore, Word by default inserts cross-reference fields as hyperlinks, so if you're editing a document that contains cross-reference fields, you can Ctrl+click them to jump to their targets.
