Word 2007 - Issue with Cross References and Bookmarks

Subject: Word 2007 - Issue with Cross References and Bookmarks

I am using Word 2007 to create "jumps" from words with a paragraph to a
table in the appendix.


When I create the cross reference, Word 2007 inserts the bookmark
*text*into the paragraph. I would
like to cross reference without having any text appear in the original
paragraph. I just want the cross reference to
"under the covers" so to speak.

Is there a way to do this in Word 2007 or does anyone know of a plug-in I
could get to solve this issue? I didn't want to use
hyperlinks, but I don't think there's any other way to do this. I wanted the
text to stay normal so the hyperlink wasn't a distraction
when a reader reads the content.

Thank you.
