How To Create A Table Of Contents In MS Office

  • 24 Jan, 2012

    Word has a feature that will generate a table of contents for your document. However, you must format your chapter or section headings with certain "heading styles" that Word uses to determine the text for the table of contents entry, as well as the page number where that section or chapter begins. To mark a chapter or section heading so it will appear in your table of contents: 1. Select the chapter or section heading. 2. Choose Heading 1 from the Styles list on the Formatting toolbar. For subheadings, choose Heading 2, Heading 3, etc. When you have finished typing your document, you can generate your table of contents: 1. Place the cursor where you want to insert the table of contents. 2. Choose Index and Tables (or Reference, then Index and Tables) from the Insert menu 3. Select Table of Contents tab, then and select the style you want. 4. Choose OK to insert the table of contents into your document. If you edit your document after creating the table of contents, you will have to update it: 1. Click to the left of the table of contents you want to update. 2. Press F9. Note: When you update the table of contents, any text or formatting you added to the finished index or table is lost.
