Word 2007: Cross reference between linked documents

Posted on 2009-02-15

Last Modified: 2012-06-21

I have created a document in Word 2007 by linking several documents together into one master document.

What I need to do is to create some cross references between the documents. For example I need to make a cross reference in chapter X to a figure in chapter Y. I also need to make a cross reference in chapter Z to chapter Y.

Will I have to do this once I have linked all the documents, or is it posible to do it in another way?

Question, why don't you just copy and paste the other documents into one document? Then you can just use bookmarks throught, heading's, etc., and build a TOC at the beginning of the document for quick navigation.

Hope this helps,
