So, I'm working on a 900+ page document, and it's as clean as I can make
it. I stomped out every rogue style I could find, used a template, etc.

The authors want some things in the table of contents, but not others, so
I'm supplementing entries by adding in cross references to numbered
headings, heading text, and page number.

So why, under the appendices, can I only cross-reference Appendices 6-10,
but not 1-5? I've tried pasting the style, using continue list...nothing. I
even shut down my computer (and Word) and brought it back up again.
Nothing.

I'm using Word 2010.
