Automatic updating cross references in word
The tooltip for Cross References (Word 2007 - Ribbon, References) says that Cross References get automatically updated if the content is moved to another location, but this does not happen.
I create a Cross Reference in document with Multi-level numbering.
Update a cross-reference from one page to another Use this procedure if you move the item that you're cross-referencing from one page to another.
For example, you can mention "Figure 1" in your document and refer the reader to the figure's location elsewhere in the document.
By default, Word inserts a cross-reference as a hyperlink that you can click to be taken directly to the cross-referenced item.
If I insert a new paragraph that causes the reference target to get a different number, the Cross Reference does not update automatically.
I have to right click on each cross reference individually and select Update Field.
