I am writing a response letter to resubmit a manuscript for IEEE journals.

My manuscript file has a filename 'main.tex', and is written as follows:

\documentclass[journal]{IEEEtran}
\IEEEoverridecommandlockouts
\usepackage{...}
\allowdisplaybreaks
\hyphenation{op-tical net-works semi-conduc-tor}
\begin{document}

\title{...}

\author{...}

\maketitle

\begin{abstract}
...
\end{abstract}

\begin{IEEEkeywords}
...
\end{IEEEkeywords}

\section{Introduction}
...
\section{...}
...
\section{...}
...
\section{...}
...

\bibliographystyle{IEEEtran}
\bibliography{IEEEabrv,main}

\end{document}

Then, my response letter is written as follows

\documentclass[11pt]{article}
...
\begin{document}
...
\end{document}

In this case, I want to refer to the equations and citations used in my manuscript, 'main.tex', in the response letter.

What is the best way to do this? Indeed, at present, I am referring to the formulas as (3), (10), (44), etc., the sections as I, II, II-A, etc., and the literature as [1], [4], [11]-[14], etc., by hand. Please recommend some correct and efficient way to refer to the Eqs., Sections., Algs., Refs. used in the original manuscript. Now, whenever the numbering is changed in the original manuscript, I am changing all numbers in the response letter by hand.

To import citation:

\usepackage{xcite}

To import cross references:

\usepackage{xr}% or xr-hyper if you use hyperref

  • Thank you for your answer. Actually, xcite works well, but xr does not work well. However, I finally solved it by using \usepackage{zref-xr}, \zxrsetup{tozreflabel=false, toltxlabel=true, verbose}, and \zexternaldocument*{main}, instead of xr.
