I do think I am not doing this right. Here is the example of what I did.

\documentclass[11pt]{book}
\usepackage{prettyref}
\begin{document}
\chapter{First}
\section{little first}\label{sec:3}
\section{little second}
\section{little third}\label{sec:2}
\chapter{Second}
\section{little first}\label{sec:1}
\section{little second}
A whole lot of text, see \prettyref{sec:1}, more text see
\prettyref{sec:2}, even more text see \prettyref{sec:3}.
\end{document}

The problem I have is that the next day I can't remember what the last
number I used was (here it is 3.) Here is the aux file.

\relax
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {chapter}{\numberline {1}First}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {1.1}little first}{1}}
\newlabel{sec:3}{{1.1}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {1.2}little second}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {1.3}little third}{1}}
\newlabel{sec:2}{{1.3}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {chapter}{\numberline {2}Second}{3}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {2.1}little first}{3}}
\newlabel{sec:1}{{2.1}{3}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {2.2}little second}{3}}

I can see where the \newlabels are and I can see my numbers, 1, 2, 3.
The trouble is that I have split my near 200 page source into a dozen
pieces with, therefore, a dozen aux files.

So, using numbers must be wrong but Companion2ed did not help. At least
not me.

Hope it makes sense.
