I would like to create several cross-references from lot of words to an only word at the same time.

For instance:

My text: Blah blah word blah blah word' blah blah blah word'' blah

The cross reference that I woult like: word word' word'' → wordDefinition

wordDefinition is in another page of the document.

Previously, I create one-by-one the cross-references, but now I'm having the problem of a lot of terminology pointing to the word definition. I would like to point all the instances of a term to its definition.

Is it possible to do this?

I know Microsoft Word fairly well, and I cannot understand your question. Can you please try to explain it a different way? Can you describe what you normally do, and what you have tried to solve this problem? I know you don’t have enough reputation points on Super User to post images, but can you make an illustrative screen image and put it on a web server where we can look at it? – Scott Nov 7 '12 at 22:24
I’m sorry, but I still don’t understand what you are saying. – Scott Nov 8 '12 at 17:25
Is this a one-to-one relationship, ie are "word", "word'" and "word''" identical (apart from the single inverted commas) - or a many-to-one where each word is different text, but all to be referenced to the same place? – pnuts Jan 12 '13 at 1:32
They are identical. But both possibilities are interesting. – lorddarkangel Jan 16 '13 at 21:13
