MS Word VBA Plugin / Macro needed -- for mac and PC

I need a word macro / plugin designed for MS Word. It needs to work in Mac OS X and Windows, but if you can only do one, then it must be Mac.

Here are the details:

I have a word document with multiple OLE (Windows) or EGO (old-format for Mac) embedded pictures from a drawing program. These pictures are all labeled with numbers (the numbers are drawn inside the drawing program, but render as text if you make a PDF of the word document). Number formats could be 1,2,3 or 1a,1b, 1c, or roman numerals. More importantly, these numbers are used in the document text. For example, I would say "Look at picture 34 (see Page 12). It is an apple."

The problem is that sometimes I wish to add or delete a picture. For example, where picture #23 is, I want to add a new picture. New picture-->#23, old picture #23-->#24. This not only means I have to renumber all pictures, but also renumber all the times I mention it in the text. It is very time consuming on documents > 20 pgs.

Part 1: Database


A database needs to be created that is easily manageable, and also combinable with portions of databases from other word documents.

This database needs to contain:

1. Text description (5 fields)

2. Picture (copy/paste from drawing program)

3. Number (more on this later)

Part 2: Referencing


Inside the word document, there needs to be a way to view the database elements, and insert them as cross-references inside the text.

For example, let's say you have an entry in the database:

Description Picture Number


Apple in Tree a picture of apple in a tree 34

Then you should be able to view the picture, apple in a tree, and #34, and then insert the number 34 OR the picture OR the text description as a cross-reference inside the document.

Part 3: Number manipulation


There should be an easy way to insert and modify numbers. For example, increase all numbers by 1. Or insert a space between numbers 2 and 3. Then the user can update the document and all the cross-references will automatically update.

Part 4: Number manipulation inside pictures


If numbers can be changed inside OLE or EGO drawing objects that would be most preferred. It is not required if this is very difficult though, since all pictures can be renumbered inside drawing program.

Thank you for your interest
