Extracting the numbers of an outline numbered list


M

Maarten D. de Jong

I have created a style which provides a very simple outline numbered
list: it's 2 levels deep and relies on an invisible top level which
does the restarting (a straight copy from Margaret Aldis' trick
explained on the MVP-site). This all works very smoothly and as it's
supposed to.

On to the question: is there a way to extract the numbers associated
with the level of a given paragraph using fields? In other words,
suppose a paragraph has been automatically numbered as '2.8' by Word
(2000), then what do I need to do to obtain the 2 and the 8 in a field
of sorts?


Kind regards,
Maarten

Insert a cross-reference to the numbered paragraph, via Insert |
Reference | Cross-reference.

Hello,

Yes, "inserting a cross-reference to the numbered paragraph" would be the
way to do it. If the paragraph's number changes (because another paragraph
has been added or removed), then the cross-referenced paragraph number is
supposed to change accordingly. But for me it does not change after I choose
Update Fields, and I cannot determine the reason.

Unless the original question is EXACTLY the same problem you have, it's
better to post a new thread (as you did) rather than hijack an existing
thread to your question.
