Ben Davies asked about the Word 2010 cross-reference issue and added :
"The following are the field codes for a normal cross reference in my
document (this one works):
{ REF_Ref314839717\n\h }: { REF_Ref314839717\h \*MERGEFORMAT }"
"The following are the field codes for the broken cross reference to the
same section in my document (this one dumps the entire section into my
reference): { REF_Ref319485722 \n \h }: {REF _Ref319485722 \h }"
You may have just solved your own problem. If the reference ending with
\*MERGEFORMAT } works properly, just copy that segment to the end of the
misbehaving references to match the format of the one that works.
