Been fiddling with OSs, hardware and software since the late 1980s.

Jack of all trades, master of none.

I've always believed in Open Source and sharing knowledge.

The Stack Exchange sites now allow me to give back to the community by sharing my experience with others. Of course, I am still learning, too!

Ok - will do (must just make some time).

What you've suggested can only be used to produce a single standard "list of figures". Sure, I could use custom labelling to rename "figure 1" to be "SRS-O-001" and set the caption to "No blue M&Ms", but I can only do this once AFAIK. Word 2010 does not provide enough styling control over figures, captions and "Table of Figures" to produce anything even half-way decent. I need to generate multiple custom x-ref tables, as appropriate for test/requirement and specification/requirement correlation.

an update: I implemented this using a style assigned to the "requirement reference" and a fixed table layout. Then VBA code is able to search for all instances of the style, navigate the table and copy the results into arrays. After a full document search (had to implement a stupid hack to store the location of the first hit, as the search method can't just search the document once), I could generate tables containing the "discovered" data. Voila! If the requirements are updated, re-run the VBA macro to generate a new table. Copy and paste excess columns if required. Nasty, but it works.

Hmm. Possibly a very valid observation! Yes, my question is test/QA related, but it is very Word technical...

comment What other standards exist for Hardware QA?
I searched long and hard through all the Stack Exchange sites, but none were precisely appropriate. I took a chance coming to sqa as it was closest (and had some relevance to my other questions). This question has already received 1 down vote (but 2 up votes). I welcome other suggestions.
