Important: If you want to create cross-references to figures and tables, their captions must have been created with Word's , the field to which the cross-reference links has been deleted (for instance, a deleted figure or table caption produces this error).
If you are not sure which element the cross-reference referred to before, undo the update and check.
Cross-references are commonly used in indexes and within long documents to direct the reader's attention to another part of the document, such as an image or related table.
Cross-references can appear anywhere within the document and often take the form of: (See Table A).
During editing, however, the caption and note numbers can change, as can page numbering.

However, cross-referencing is still a valuable time-saver. If formatted properly, you may also cross-reference to headings, bookmarks, numbered items, endnotes, equations, figures, and tables.
You can find a lot of helpful information on the web by simply searching “cross-reference [whatever] in Word.” Thank you to Professors Larre and von Tigerstrom of the University of Saskatchewan, College of Law, for bringing cross-referencing footnotes to my attention.
For example, Word will not change cross-references if you change the content of the footnote referred to.
Cross-referencing only picks up footnote number changes when footnotes have been added or deleted.
