I too create 200+ page manuals in Word 2012. I use the Navigation Bar to
move sections around if needed and like Steve Janoff says, do the "Ctrl +A
and F9" routine to update the reference tables. Every so often I get a
glitch, but it's only a reference to a single section or figure. Searching
for "ERROR!" usually finds the lost links. I also search for "Section"
through the entire document to find those section references that were
replaced with Section "0." It adds to production time, but it's far better
to find them early in the process than it is to find them after you've
created PDFs or sent them to customers.
