How to automatically add chapter title to header?

Hello,

I have a long document with a large number (~100) of short chapter (2-3
pages), and I would like to add the chapter title to the page header in each
case.

Is there a way to do this automatically? I've followed the procedure in MS
Word Help, and defined each chapter to be a separate section. But when I
view the header, and use
Insert->Reference->CrossReference
to insert Heading into the header, I have to manually specify which chapter
title to use.

Is there a way to do this automatically?

Many thanks,
Paul

Insert | Field | Field names: StyleRef | Style name: <whatever
Heading style your chapter titles are formatted as>.

PS. If you use the StyleRef field, you do not need to make each chapter a
separate section just to get a different header. (You would need separate
sections to restart page numbering or footnote numbering, but otherwise you
might be able to take those section breaks out).
