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?

    See this:

    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,
