See Section 5 in my notebook at URL: http://www.wolfram.com/~paulh/Mathematica/Notebooks/CounterTutorial.nb Making a counter refer to a value elsewhere in your notebook requires the presence of a CellTag in the cell that contains the counter value. It also requires that the CounterBox have a second argument that has the destination Cell. -- P.J.
