Updating cross-references in Word

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.
