    My document contains several heading style levels. The first two levels are references throughout the document.

    The first heading style appears as upper case roman numbers: ARTICLE I

    I would like to have a reference code ("REF") to the first level appear as 1 (an Arabic number, even though the source is a Roman number), and without the word "ARTICLE."

    Using the switch "t", gives just the number, but still uses a roman number. This is how my code currently looks: {REF \*Arabic "0.0" \r \h \t} Note: *Arabic isn't having any affect

    I would very much appreciate any help!

    This is the third forum you've asked this question in - after it's already been answered - and after you were reminded of the expected cross-posting etiquette at BOTH of the other forums.

    Cross-posted at:
    http://www.msofficeforums.com/word/36455-word-2016-how-do-i-change-ref.html
    and answered at: https://social.technet.microsoft.co...a-heading-style-to-arabic-when-the?forum=word
    For cross-posting etiquette, please read: http://www.excelguru.ca/content.php?184

    Cross-posting at multiple forums isn't going to change the answer. Not even acknowledging the answer you've already been given is just plain rude...
