Howdy,

What isn't clear to me from the information given is whether these files are included in a single document or are in completely separate documents? What you need to do int he former case is simply compile the root file (which includes these two files) multiple times (to resolve the cross references) [or use latexmk which will do this automatically].

Good Luck,
