Creating and Modifying a Table of Contents

A table of contents generally appears at the beginning of a document, and lists the main headings and subheadings along with corresponding page numbers. A table of contents provides an overview of the topics covered in a document and lets readers navigate quickly to a topic. For example, The Garden Company might add a table of contents to a garden tools catalog that has several sections.


To create and format a table of contents, you designate headings and subheadings and then click Index and Tables on the Reference submenu of the Insert menu. Word then uses the heading styles to identify table of contents entries, and inserts the table at the insertion point. When the table is selected, shading indicates that Word treats it as a single field. Each entry is hyperlinked to the heading it references, and you can hold down the key and click the entry to go to the corresponding section.
