WORD In­sert a ta­ble of contents in longer doc­u­ments

Computer Active (UK) - - Make Office Better -

If you are work­ing on a longer doc­u­ment (for ex­am­ple, a book or busi­ness plan con­tain­ing many chap­ters and sub-sec­tions), it’s a good idea to in­sert a ta­ble of contents at the be­gin­ning of your doc­u­ment.

To do this, high­light the first chap­ter ti­tle, then click Head­ing 1 in the Styles sec­tion of the Home tab (top right). Now high­light the first sec­tion ti­tle within this chap­ter, then click Head­ing 2 in the Styles sec­tion. Re­peat this process for all chap­ter ti­tles (Head­ing 1) and sec­tion ti­tles (Head­ing 2) in your doc­u­ment.

Click a point at the start of your doc­u­ment. Next, click the Ref­er­ences tab, then the ‘Ta­ble of Contents’ drop­down menu at the top left to see the dif­fer­ent

op­tions avail­able (see screen­shot be­low left). Click to se­lect the one you want. You’ll now see all your chap­ters and any sub-sec­tions listed in a ta­ble of contents – with the cor­rect page num­bers for each.
