Eva Whitley complained about a nasty word quirk:
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."
I've run into problems with numbered Word headings in appendices more than
once. The kludge I've use is to use heading levels 6 through 9, setting up
Heading 6 as a Heading A-1 in the appendix, Heading 7 as Heading A-1.1, etc.
You have to use the built-in heading levels for the cross refs and automated
TOC macros to work properly, and you have to set up your ToC with heading 6
at level 1, heading 7 at level 2, etc. HTH
