Fix – Use Cross Reference to Reference a Sequence/List of Items in MS Word
Problem – I had a list of claims in which I wanted a cross-reference to work in a cross reference window. The fields were there, highlighted as field codes, but the claims didn’t show up in the cross-reference window.
Fix – Right click on the field and click “toggle field codes.” Note the name after the “SEQ” or other three letter beginning. Go to Insert -> Reference -> Caption. Click on “New Label” button. Add the name as it was spelled after the SEQ. Click OK. Click Close. Now go to Insert -> Reference -> Cross Reference and your name is now in the drop down box. Select the name and you should see your sequence displayed in the main pane in the cross-reference box. Phew!
Hope that helps!
