Chapter 6. Enhancing a Document with Word > Inserting a Table of Contents

Inserting a Table of Contents

A table of contents provides an outline of main topics and page locations. Word builds a table of contents based on the styles in a document that you choose. By default, Heading 1 is the first-level entry, Heading 2 the second level, and so on. In a printed table of contents, a leader, a line whose style you select, connects an entry to its page number. In Web documents, entries become hyperlinks. Hide nonprinting characters before creating a table of contents so text doesn't shift to other pages as you print.

Insert a Table of Contents

Click the Insert menu, point to Reference, and then click Index And Tables.

Click the Table Of Contents tab.

Select the Show Page Numbers and the Right Align Page Numbers check boxes.

Click the Tab Leader list arrow, and then select a leader style.

Click the Formats list arrow, and then select a table of contents style.

Enter the number of heading levels you want.

Click Options.

If necessary, delete any numbers, and then type 1 next to the first-level style, 2 next to the second-level style, and so on.

Click OK.

Click OK.
