You may want to make a reference to a specific paragraph in another part of the document such as "In paragraph 3.2". But what if that paragraph number might change? Then instead of entering the number add a cross-reference.
- On the Insert tab select cross-reference
- Select numbered item from the Reference type: dropdown menu
- Select the numbered item you wish to reference
- Select "Paragraph number" from the Insert Reference to: dropdown menu
- Select Insert
To update a single cross-reference select the cross-reference and press F9 or to update the whole document simply do a Print Preview.
