Thanks Wolfgang,

Hans kindly sent me a simple minimal. I've adjusted it to include a
call
to \pagereference and it works. I'm currently trying to test my
project
to see why my own calls to \pagereference do not result in any output,
despite the fact that all the calls to the reference ids in chapters
work
as expected. I'm imagining at this point that it has something to do
with
using two master files --one for each volume-- with multiple includes
(\components) for each chapter &c. -- the \pagereference code appears
in a number of the components.

I'll try to set up a simple example replicating the file structure I'm
using
and then send it through.

Best, Richard

Hi Richard,

I just tested \pagereference in a simple example and had no problem
to
get

the page numbers from the other document. Without a minimal example

there is no way to tell what's missing in your document.
