2.1.522 Part 4 Section 2.16.5.58, REF

a. The standard says the REF must have at least one general-formatting-switch and at most one field-specific-switch.

In Word, the REF field is allowed to have zero general-formatting-switches and multiple field-specific-switches.

b. The standard says the \d switch specifies the character sequence used to separate sequence numbers and page numbers, but does not explain what sequence numbers and page numbers.

In Word, the \d switch specifies the character sequence used to separate sequence numbers placed in the field value by the \n, \r, and \w switches.

c. The standard provides insufficient information to explain how the \n switch affects the REF field value.

In Word, for a referenced numbered paragraph, \n causes the field result to be the paragraph number without trailing periods. No information about prior numbered levels is displayed unless it is included as part of the current level.

[Example:

If the referenced paragraph is numbered 2.7.1, the field shall result in 1. end example]

d. The standard says the REF keyword is not optional when used with bookmarks with the same name as a field.

In Word, REF is required to be present if the bookmark name is one of the following: CONTROL, DATA, EMBED, HTMLCONTROL, or SUBSCRIBER.

e. The standard provides insufficient information to explain how the \r switch affects the REF field value.

In Word, for a referenced numbered paragraph, \r inserts the paragraph number of the bookmarked paragraph in relative context, or relative to its position in the numbering scheme without trailing periods.

[Example:

If the REF field is contained within paragraph 4.3.1 and the referenced paragraph is numbered 4.5.2, the result shall be 5.2. end example]

f. The standard provides insufficient information to explain how the \w switch affects the REF field value.

In Word, for a referenced numbered paragraph, \w causes the field result to be the entire paragraph number without trailing periods, regardless of the location of the REF field.

[Example:

If the REF field is contained within paragraph 4.3.1 and the referenced paragraph is numbered 4.5.2, the result shall be 4.5.2. end example]
