    Referring to numbered paragraphs

    RuthK Level 1

      I'm posting this for a friend as she is having a problem with her forum account.




      I have a book that has many different sections and sub-sections. At the top of every page (with the header), I want to put the number of the first section of that page.


      eg 3 : B

      (ie section 3, sub-section B).


      The sub-sections have been numbered with automatic numbering and have been given a paragraph style.


      Is there a way to generate these automatically in InDesign?




      From how I understand the problem, what she is trying to do is find out, is there a variable you can put on the master page, which will automatically give the number (A, B, C of a paragraph numbered that way)  of the first numbered para on the page.
