Hi Experts,

In a word document, I need to mention some of the sections (paragraph)  in my document as follows
 
" The procedure in sections 2.2 ,2.3 and 2.4 are explained"      

  Can I  maintain a  way ( similar to how the  table of contents is updated) by which I don't have to manually edit this , if later the sections are edited and the number changes (For example, a new section comes before and 2.2 becomes 2.3 and all shifts from there)

 Thanks

Hi,

You will need to applied the required styles from Heading 1....Heading 2 or Heading 3 to the sections. To insert this into TOC with built-in templates which you can update entrie table with right-click if you insert any section in between.

Please find attached example document file.

Thanks,

Hi,

    It is not about the table of contents my question is .   It is about how to mention a section in the content ( as in the attachment)
Well of course you can specify your content arrangement and it will be set automatically on the others that are coming next.

You need to insert a cross-reference.
Choose 'Numbered item' as the' Reference type' and 'Paragraph number' for the 'Insert reference to:' box .

Incidentally. a Section is a specific type of a part of a document, so it's best not to use the word out of that context.
