Creating a TOC

Once you’ve checked your headings to make sure they’re clear and concise and that you’ve assigned a heading style Word will recognize, you can generate the table of contents. Here are the steps to follow:

1.
Place the insertion point where you want to add the table of contents.

2.
Choose Insert, Reference, Index And Tables. The Index And Tables dialog box appears.

3.
Click the Table Of Contents tab. Here you choose options for the table of contents you generate, as shown in Figure 21-1.

4.
By default, Word right-aligns the page numbers in your table of contents. If you want no page number displayed, clear the Show Page Numbers check box; if you want to left-align the page numbers, clear the Right Align Page Numbers check box.

5.
Click the Tab Leader arrow. Click the leader character you want to use, if any. You can choose from None, periods, en dashes (–), or em dashes (—).

6.
Click OK to generate the TOC. Word places the table at the insertion point, as shown in Figure 21-2.
