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

        \section{little first}\label{sec:3}
        \section{little second}
        \section{little third}\label{sec:2}
        \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}.

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.

\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {chapter}{\numberline {1}First}{1}}
\@writefile{lof}{\addvspace {10\p@ }}
\@writefile{lot}{\addvspace {10\p@ }}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {1.1}little first}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {1.2}little second}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {1.3}little third}{1}}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {chapter}{\numberline {2}Second}{3}}
\@writefile{lof}{\addvspace {10\p@ }}
\@writefile{lot}{\addvspace {10\p@ }}
\@writefile{toc}{\contentsline {section}{\numberline {2.1}little first}{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.
