    Cannot set a cross-reference to a created heading (WORD 2000)

    We are creating new heading styles in our documents, and saving the headings to the template. When we try to insert a cross-reference to these new headings, they will not show up in the heading list of the cross-reference window. If we leave the style of the heading alone; i.e., use the Heading One style for "Chapter One" instead of using the "Chapter One" heading style, "Chapter One" shows up fine. Is there a way to resolve this problem?

    Hi grayhounds:

    The cross-reference dialog box only lists the built-in heading styles. See <A target="_blank" HREF=http://support.microsoft.com/support/kb/articles/Q268/7/11.ASP>WD2000: General Information About Cross-reference Fields</A>. Too bad, too. It would be nice if you could use your own styles, like you can with a Table of Contents.

    Maybe someone here or on the VBA board could write a userform that would do this for your own styles...or has a good workaround. You could always add {REF} fields on your own that will refer back to your headings (which you must bookmark). This isn't as easy as having Word list all your headings & inserting the cross-reference & a hidden bookmark in one step, though.

    Is there any reason why you can't just edit the built-in heading styles to match your chapter headings? If you use it a lot you could even create a template for it ...
