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."

Eva:
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
