preferably with the references appearing in the order they appear in the book and them be able to refer to them in the text in different formats:

1. see [3]

2. refer to [3] 1114002-EB

3. see [3] 1114002-EB SCANTER 4000 Series Power Rack

I have used Latex with bibtex before and would like something similar, there you have a list of references with identifiers and them refer to them and compile a list of references.

Is that possible in Framemaker 12?

Thank you

The answer to the first part of your question is easy:

2. use a cross-reference to pull in <$paranum> (plus any formatting you fancy) for a reference to just the number

The answer to the third part is similar: use a cross-reference to pull in <$paranum> and <$paratext> (plus any formatting you fancy) for a full reference to the entry in the booklist

As for the second part, I don't know off-hand. You might be able to do something where you use a table instead of a single style for the booklist entries, then define different styles for each column of the table and set up complex cross-refs to one, two or all three bits of information – but this would be error-prone. See if you can persuade your readers to accept the two easy options.

Post again if you need more information about the details. Oh, and I'd avoid double tabs … even if they didn't look suspiciously like Word ;-}

Thank you

I would still like to know if there is a bibtex like function, so that I can update a list of references that I can then use in all my documentation?

and if there is a way to edit what appears when using the building block <paratext> so the whole text does not appear?
