Need cross reference to update with edits in Word 2003

In the attached document from Word 2003, I have a section 2 with sub-sections a, b, c, iv. As I work on the document, what is currently section 2(c) may later become section 7(f). I'd like to have it so that when I refer to these sections in my document (in section iv), it will automatically update as I edit. So for instance what now says 2(c) in section iv, will automatically update as I add more sections and the current 2(c) becomes 7(f).

contrain,

Word cross-references usually work very well, so long as you are using Heading styles.

The following provides a good introduction to the topic:

Helpful and informative article. Just to double check, are styles the only way to make it update?

Well, that's the easiest way.  You can also use bookmarks, and numbered items such as tables and figures, but in my opinion using the various Heading styles is the way to go.
