Default References to heading text

I have a document that has certain headings, such as "Article I". In various
places in the document I have references to that Article. If I change
"Article I" to Article III, for example, I would like the references to
automatically update.

I know that this can be done, but I am not being successful getting it to
happen.

Any thoughts would be appreciated.
TIA

If you have used Insert | Reference | Cross-reference, then the
cross-references will update, but not automatically. You have to force an
update with Ctrl+A, F9 or by printing or switching to Print Preview.
