Inserting Cross-References

Word 2000 includes extensive support for cross-referencing—everything from "See Figure x-y above" kinds of references to "as defined in paragraph IV.B.7.a." Each type of cross-reference has its own requirements and quirks, so a little bit of planning will go a long way.

These references persist even if the document changes. That's what makes them so powerful and useful. Say you have a reference in a contract that says "as defined in paragraph IV.B.7.a." Then one of the attorneys working on the contract realizes it needs an additional numbered paragraph, and that new paragraph has to go ahead of the current paragraph IV.A. All you need to do is insert the paragraph, select the document, and press F9 to update fields. Automatically, the old paragraph IV.B.7.a becomes paragraph IV.C.7.a, and the old reference to it turns into "as defined in paragraph IV.C.7.a."
