    Including Chap.# in page references

    Hello,

    I have a document with lots of "see p. xx.yy" references, where xx is a chapter number and yy the number of the page in that chapter. They are formatted all as one field, {SEITENREF textmarkname} (I have the German version of Word 97). When I update the field, however, the chapter number disappears and only the page number updates. How can I get Word to insert xx.yy format page numbers in these fields. The Insert-PageNumbers Format dialog box has a promising checkbox, but it doesnt seem to have any effect.

    Thank you for any suggestions
    Ed Colaianni

    If you insert the page number reference via Insert Cross-reference, does it work OK, or is that already how you're inserting them? Are the page numbers done using heading numbers as the chapter numbers, using the regular page numbering that comes with Word?

    Re: Including Chap.# in page references

    Having done some more testing and using the tips provided here, I can describe the problem in more detail:

    1. Because I use section breaks in the middle of a page to insert headers that span multiple columns, I cant restart page numbering for each section. New chapters begin with Heading1 headings, and those headings must be formated as numbered (Format-Templates-Format-Lists)

    2. I then marked the appropriate fields in the dialog box under Insert-PageNumbers-Format. I did this repeatedly, each time with the cursor in a different section until all sections were accounted for.

    3. Now I do get the chapter number to appear with the page number (in W97) in the cross references UNLESS the bookmark referred to is in a text box. When it is, only the page number appears.

    (Menu names given here may not be exact, as I am translating from the German version of Word).

    Oh[img]/w3timages/icons/frown.gif[/img]. I see, I think. The textbox as a floating object (even if anchored) may repaginate relative to where you placed it visually, and not necessarily where you placed it physically. Maybe for those instances, insert a cross-reference to the appropriate heading number immediately preceding the page reference, and with a manual hyphen? It would look something like this:
    {REF _Refnnnnnnnn n h}-{PAGEREF BMName h}
    with changes needed for your language version...

    It is an interest difficulty, please let me know if this helps.

    Re: Including Chap.# in page references

    That is a whole other problem: a page reference to a bookmark in a textbox returns the page where the box is anchored and not the page where the box actually appears. (In my document this they are always the same)

    What is a problem for me, is that even when I specify "include chapter number with page number", the value returned by the cross-reference does NOT include the chapter number if the bookmark is in a box.

    Re: Including Chap.# in page references

    [img]/w3timages/icons/shy.gif[/img]I'm sorry - my response was evidently unclear.

    The reference to the chapter is a separate reference, thus on what page the text-box is located in relation to the appropriate heading is irrelevant.[img]/w3timages/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

    You want to:
    (a) cross ref. the Heading number; then
    ( insert hyphen; then
    insert page reference.

    Good luck!
    Karen
