To create an automatic table of contents you must do the following. Mark the text of the chapter titles and sections of a particular style. To create an automatic table of contents, Word uses the heading style. Style "Heading 1" is designed to process the largest title document, such as chapter titles. Style "Heading 2" make out the names of sections of the chapter, and the style "Heading 3" names of subsections. Based on selected levels of headings Word creates an automatic table of contents.
As a rule, to mark the text structure and the formation of TOC headings used only the first three levels. Performed on the basis of markup styles headings of different levels to create an automatic table of contents and place it either at the beginning or the end of the text. So, let's create an automatic table of contents. Take any text and make a title of its sections with using the appropriate styles: "Heading 1", "Heading 2" and "Heading 3". To do this, select the section name in the tab "Links" click on "Add text" from the dropdown menu and select the heading level. When finished processing the header styles, position the cursor at the location where you want to place a table of contents, go to "Links" and click on "Contents." You will see a drop-down menu where you must choose one of two items: "Avtosobiraemoe TOC 1" or "table of contents Avtosobiraemoe 2." After clicking you will see that you have created on the basis of markup styles automatically generated table of contents showing page numbers on which is the beginning of chapters, sections and subsections. Now, to go to that section, just press Ctrl and click on the name of this section in the TOC when the mouse pointer to a hand. You will automatically move to the location in the text where starts the selected topic.
If you need to make changes to the section titles or reshape their levels, modify the text, and then tab "Links" in the "Indexes", click "Update table". A dialog box of updates. You need to upgrade or just the page numbers (this is done, if you moved the fragments the text or change the order of the sections), or the entire table (used if you changed the title or heading levels). Set the appropriate switch and click "OK". Content re-formed and updated. Even more interesting lessons on our blog Become a professional in computer education courses, the Centre FreeDom –
