The best way to generate a table of contents is to apply the predefined heading paragraph styles, such as "Heading 1", to the paragraphs that you want to include in your table of contents. After you apply these styles, you can then create a table of contents.

To Insert a Table of Contents

  1. Click in your document where you want to create the table of contents.
  2. Choose Insert - Table of Contents and Index - Table of Contents, Index or Bibliography, and then click the Index or Table of Contents tab.
  3. Select "Table of Contents" in the Type box.
  4. Select any options that you want.
  5. Click OK.

If you want to use a different paragraph style as a table of contents entry, select the Additional Styles check box in the Create from area, and then click the Assign styles button next to the check box. In the Assign Styles dialog, click the style in the list, and then click the >> or the << button to define the outline level for the paragraph style.

To Update a Table of Contents

Do one of the following:

  • Right-click in the table of contents and choose Update Index or Table of Contents.
  • Choose Tools - Update - All Indexes and Tables.
