this sounds like what you need is a feature like M$ words "master
document" ... this makes it possible to have numbering that is
consistent across seperate doc files.

>From OOo help (vesion 1.9.74):

A master document lets you manage large documents, such as a book with
many chapters, by acting as a container for individual OpenOffice.org
Writer files. The individual files are called subdocuments. You can
also separate a large document that is being worked on by several
people into subdocuments and then add the subdocuments to a master
document.
When you add a document to a master document or create a new
subdocument, a link is created in the master document. You cannot edit
the content of a subdocument directly in the master document, but you
can use the Navigator to open any subdocument for edit.
Page, caption, footnote, endnote, and any other numbering that you
have set in the subdocuments, is carried over into the master
document. For example, if the last footnote in the first subdocument
is footnote 6, then the first footnote in the next subdocument will be
footnote 7.
Styles that are used in subdocuments, such as paragraph styles, are
automatically imported into the master document after you save the
master document. When you modify the style in the master document, the
style in the subdocument is unaffected.

Use the same document template for the master document and its
subdocuments. When you modify or create a style, add it to the
document template, and then reload the master document to apply to the
subdocuments.
