Using Cross-References

When you’re working on a long document in which you want to refer to other parts of that document, you can use cross-references to help readers find the information they seek. Word lets you refer to a number of different elements in your document—including captions, headings, footnotes and endnotes, and bookmarks you’ve created.

Tip

Expand subdocuments before referencing

You can create cross-references only within the current document. You might create a reference at the beginning of a long report, for example, that points readers to a table in a later section that lists statistics related to a new study. You can’t create a cross-reference to refer to a table in another document, however.

If you’re working with master and subdocuments, be sure to expand the master document by clicking the Expand Subdocuments button on the Outlining toolbar. This makes all text accessible before you enter cross-references.
