    Opening cross references in a different window (Word 2000)

    We use book marks and cross references extensively in our documentation. Following a cross reference is cool and using <shift>F5 allows you to go back. However, generally I'm working in one window and want to track the followed references in another window.

    Is there any way to click on a cross reference in one Word window and have it open or move to the reference in another window?

    When you say "window," do you mean "document"? I'm not sure Word can link between documents, other than with hyperlinks. But I certainly haven't tried hard to find another way. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    In another thread, I just posted a VBA procedure that creates hidden bookmarks in one document and hyperlinks to them in a second document. If I wasn't creating my own bookmarks, I'm not sure how I would know the name Word has given to the cross-reference. I also wouldn't necessarily trust Word not to change it! There have been threads here before on how cross-references can mysteriously break when Word changes its hidden bookmarks. Not sure whether those discussions would help you decide how to get where you want to go.
