"Word 2007 Table of Contents - Using Headings to Create a TOC"
How to use the Word 2007 table of contents to create the TOC easily?
A table of contents (TOC) is very useful for a long document. For example, you can use TOC to quickly browse through what are the contents of a long document.
Adding a TOC to your document is simple if you have included styles (either build-in style such as Heading 1, Heading 2, etc or custom styles)
Many people try to create a table of contents manually, without using the built-in process in Microsoft Word. It's not easy and the spacing never comes out quite right, does it?
This tutorial demonstrates how to create a TOC. There are two steps you take to create a TOC:
After the heading styles are applied, it's time to collect them all together in the TOC. This is where Word does the work for you.
Note: If you want to change TOC 2 (Level 2) or TOC 3 (Level 3) to be blue also, you would do the same procedure selecting TOC 2 or TOC 3 in the Style dialog box before proceeding to the Modify Style dialog box.
The TOC is automatically updated whenever you open the document; but it's a good idea to also update it whenever you add more titles or headings in your document or when you add more content that may affect the page numbers that appear in the TOC.
Update page numbers only: If you've added body text but no new headings (this option is faster).
Note: Avoid editing entries in the TOC itself; if you ever update the TOC you will lose those changes. To change text that appears in the TOC, be sure to edit this text in the body of the document and then click Update Table to compile the changes.
