Word updating cross references
To update all the references in a file, select the whole document and use the Update Field option.
Other types of referenced material in Word share the Update Field option and the F9 shortcut with cross-references.
A cross-reference refers to an item that appears in another location in a document.
For example, you can mention "Figure 1" in your document and refer the reader to the figure's location elsewhere in the document.
Once you're happy with what you have there, click "Insert" and Word will insert the page number at the current cursor location.When you are creating a lengthy, laborious business file such as a contract or other legal document, using the cross-reference feature in Word can help you, your colleagues and your clients navigate the pages more easily.Should you make changes to a cross-referenced section of the file, you must update the document manually for the associated field to change. Alternatively, select the "Home" tab, click "Select" in the Editing group and choose "Select All" to select the entire document, including all of the cross-reference fields.No need to update cross-references, tables of contents and separately; just select the whole document and click Update Field.On the other hand, if you don't want to update other items, you need to select your cross-references more carefully.
