Data Type

Description

ReferenceType

Required

Variant

The type of item for which a cross-reference is to be inserted. Can be any WdReferenceType or WdCaptionLabelID constant or a user defined caption label.

ReferenceKind

Required

WdReferenceKind

The information to be included in the cross-reference.

ReferenceItem

Required

Variant

If ReferenceType is wdRefTypeBookmark, this argument specifies a bookmark name. For all other ReferenceType values, this argument specifies the item number or name in the Reference type option in the Cross-reference dialog box. Use the GetCrossReferenceItems method to return a list of item names that can be used with this argument.

InsertAsHyperlink

Optional

Variant

True to insert the cross-reference as a hyperlink to the referenced item.

IncludePosition

Optional

Variant

True to insert "above" or "below," depending on the location of the reference item in relation to the cross-reference.

IncludePosition

Optional

Variant

True to use a separator to separate the numbers from the associated text. (Use only if the ReferenceType parameter is set to wdRefTypeNumberedItem and the ReferenceKind parameter is set to wdNumberFullContext.)

IncludePosition

Optional

Variant

Specifies the string to use as a separator if the SeparateNumbers parameter is set to True.

If you specify wdPageNumber for the value of ReferenceKind, you may need to repaginate the document to see the correct cross-reference information.

This example inserts at the beginning of the active document a cross-reference to the page that includes the first bookmark in the document.

Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Range(Start:=0, End:=0) 
myBookmarks = ActiveDocument _ 
 .GetCrossReferenceItems(wdRefTypeBookmark) 
With myRange 
 .InsertBefore "Page " 
 .Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd 
 .InsertCrossReference ReferenceType:=wdRefTypeBookmark, _ 
 ReferenceKind:=wdPageNumber, ReferenceItem:=myBookmarks(1) 
End With
