Issues with updating Cross References

Afternoon all, and thank you in advance for anyone who can help me out here.

 

So I have imported a Word file into my ID file. It's a 100 page report and where things are bold or italic, they've come in fine. The footnotes have all come in and it's all going well.

 

However it has about 90 cross references in, now I've worked with hyperlinks and bits and pieces but never cross references - so bear with me.

 

In the Word file the blue highlight (like a hyperlink) which is the cross reference is for example 'Ruf F., 1995)' and then it jumps to the full sentence. 

 

But when I update the references in ID it puts the whole sentence in, which isn't what I want.

 

Is there an easy way to update all of these or do I need to learn how it works and re-do all of them?  I am attaching the scrren shotsof the Word file.

 

Phew! If anyone can advise or guide me that would be brilliant, thanks.

that looks like a very handy plug in, but I've already dropped all the content into a 100 page ID document so I don't think it will work.

 

But have you used it? As I have 2 language documents for this job, I am doing a French and Spanish version and wonder if I can update the English with the French and Spanish?

 

Thanks.
