Default Chapters in Headers

Hi Friends!

I have a page that has, say, on that page, chapters 1,2,3.



I want the header to reflect that.

So I created a style called "ChapterNo" and formated the Chapter No. using that style and then used the field in the header "Style Ref"

Works fine. But it only gets the text for the first instance of that style, so it reads just:

"Chap 1"

What can I do on a page that has, say, Chap 1,2,3 on that page, and I want the header to read:

"Chap 1-3" (starting from the first chapter on that page and ending with the last)

TIA

Susan Flamingo
Etc.

Hi Susan,


The StyleRef Field only will reflect a singe instance of the style. However you can have multiple fields and they can pick up the last entry instead of the first.
Use the \l switch in one field to pick up the last entry.

Ok, I think I understand.

Question if I may:

If I have two instances of the style:

1. "Chap 1"
2. "Chap 2"

So in the heading, I know how to insert two fields one without the switch you mentioned and one with that switch, and that would give me:

"Chap 1 Chap 2"

But if I have two instances of the style:

1. "Chap 1"
2. " Chap 1"

I DONT want it to read "Chap 1 Chap 1"

Just "Chap 1"

So I want Word to check: If the text of the last instance is *identical* to the text of the first instance, just show the first instance.

Can it be done?

Thank You for your help

Susan

First consider doing:
{ StyleRef "Heading 1" } - { StyleRef "Heading 1" \l }
or
{ StyleRef "Heading 1" } through { StyleRef "Heading 1" \l }


Then you get:
"Chap 1 - Chap 2" or "Chap 1 through Chap 2"
"Chap 1 - Chap 1" or "Chap 1 through Chap 1"
which does not look as confusing.

You can use an IF Field to compare the two.
Code:
{ IF { StyleRef "Heading 1" } <> { StyleRef "Heading 1" \l } { StyleRef "Heading 1" \l } }

That would be used instead of just the { StyleRef "Heading 1" \l }
