# A question on cross-reference

Suppose I have several sections in my document. How may I cross-reference to a section so that it is updated if I make more sections?

Just create a label for the referenced section(s), and then refer to it (them) from anywhere else. LaTeX will automatically change the references if new sections are added. E.g.,
\section{The Referred Section}
