In Word 2007, I would like to insert a cross-reference in one comment to another comment.

While in the comment, I can go to Insert --> Cross-Reference, but I do not find any "comment" section in the Cross-Reference dialog box, nor do comments appear in the "numbered items" section. Note that this applies to inserting a reference in the document body as well.

How does one insert a cross-reference to a comment?


You cannot : A comment is not a legal Reference type.


I've found a work-around: I can insert a bookmark in the comment and then insert a reference to the bookmark.

I don't get the label of the comment, but I can quote any portion of it. Given harrymc's answer, I suspect that's the best I'll be able to do.
