I am creating a document in Microsoft Word.
I would like to have several lists of items and be able to cross reference them among themselves. The problem I am facing is that i need to have the reference in the numbering.

Example:
M-01
M-02
M-03

A1-02 - where "02" is reference to M-02
A1-03 - where "03" is next item of the list -  previous item +1
A2-02 - again reference to M-02
A2-03 - +1
A2-04 - +1

These lists are long enough to do it by hand and are changing time to time, hance the cross-reference.

I do not need that to be headlines or lists, just any automated solution is ok. I do not even mind using Excel to do that, but I am not sure how to reference there.

Thanks a lot, any help appreciated!
