Hallo, I have imported Word2003 DOC that contains cross-references. These work BETTER in OOo than in Word2000(!!) because when You click at them, it at least brings You to the referenced bookmark. However, the references are not visible in the way as in Word. Each reference bookmark represents a chapter, that is of course part of numbering. In the places, where cross-reference is used, the referenced chapter number is displayed. I'm not able to reproduce this on OOo however. There is just blank field in the place of cross-reference. I can enter into editation mode, the reference is set there, however the chapter number is never displayed. Does the Word2003 have some new class of handling the cross reference? The behaviour is quite self-explaining. You can create a document, create bookmarks for chapters, and then cite the chapter numbers correctly even if numbering has changed during document editation. I must also say, that I was unable even to CREATE such document from the scratch in OOo. I can only reference to the chapter name, not the numbering. I think the function is quite important for any larger document that use numbering and references to the chapters.

Please check if this is the same problem as issue 2593. Otherwise please attach the sample document. Thanks a lot!

Well, it depends. If we look strictly at the beginning of issue, this is compatibility problem more than a UI problem. The facts are, that an ordinary document from Word2003, with no rocket since inbound, is incorrectly opened in OOo Writer -the crossreferences are not displayed, and in fact, lost from user's or document usability view. If we take it this way, then this is an import issue that probably depends on fixing 2593. I'll submit a test case ASAP, must ask the partner for extraction of some benign parts of the legal document..

Any updates on this? Maybe you can send me the confidential document directly and I will build a new one from the scratch using the same field types but different content (I will delete right after this).

I can see now. In deed, it is the same problem as issue 2593. In the attached document, there are references to numbered paragraphs. Writer is not able to process it, because of missing UI AND core. Currently, it would be possible to refer to the Chapter numbers - when used. You have to enable the correct settings in "Tools.Outline Numbering" and then use the assigned heading styles in the document. *** This issue has been marked as a duplicate of 2593 ***
