Putting Cross-References in a Document
Follow these steps to create a cross-reference:
1. Write the first part of the cross-reference text.
For example, you could write To learn more about these cowboys of the
pampas, see page and then type a blank space. The blank space separates
the word page from the page number in the cross-reference. If you are
referring to a heading, write something like For more information, see “ .
Don’t type a blank space this time because the cross-reference heading
text will appear right after the double quotation mark.
2. On the References tab, click the Cross-Reference button.
The Cross-Reference dialog box appears, as shown in Figure 8-7.
3. Choose what type of item you’re referring to in the Reference Type

click outside the dialog box, scroll to the paragraph you’re referring
to, and place a bookmark there. (Chapter 1 of this mini-book explains
4. Make a choice in the Insert Reference To box to refer to text, a page
number, or a numbered item.
The options in this box are different, depending on what you chose in
• Text: Choose this option (Heading Text, Entire Caption, and so on)
to include text in the cross-reference. For example, choose Heading
Text if your cross-reference is to a heading.
