I have a cell style (Exercise) in a style sheet whose definition includes a CounterIncrements option (CounterIncrements->"Exercise"). Suppose I have a particular cell, call it cellA, with that style. Into that cell I've inserted an Automatic Numbering number for counter Exercise. And I've given that cell the cell tag "exercA". In another, text, cell, say cell cellB, how can I insert the NUMBER of that cellA? Of course I want to do this in a robust way: if the automatic number of cellA later changes because I insert or delete other Exercise cells before it that also have the same Automatic Numbering counter, then in cellB the number referenced from cellA should correspondingly change. (Of course I already know how to insert simply a hyperlink to that other cell: that's trivial. But that's not what I'm asking.) It looks like I'm trying to include some kind of Dynamic object within these cells, but I don't know how, even looking at the cells' underlying expressions (with Ctrl Shift E) . -- Murray Eisenberg murray at math.umass.edu Mathematics & Statistics Dept.
