and how it’s
Changing the structure of a TOC
Sometimes the conventional TOC that Word generates doesn’t do the trick.
Just because a heading has been given the Heading 1 style doesn’t mean
that it should receive first priority in the TOC. Suppose that you created
another style called Chapter Title that should stand taller in the hierarchy
than Heading 1. In that case, you need to rearrange the TOC so that Heading
1 headings rank second, not first, in the TOC hierarchy.
Use the Table of Contents Options and Style dialog boxes to tinker with
a TOC. These dialog boxes are shown in Figure 8-4. To open them, click,
respectively, the Options button or Modify button in the Table of Contents
dialog box (refer to Figure 8-3).
✦ Assigning TOC levels to paragraph styles: The Table of Contents
Options dialog box lists each paragraph style in the document you’re
working in. For headings you want to appear in the TOC, enter a number
in the TOC Level text box to determine the headings’ rank. If headings
assigned the Heading 1 style are to rank second in the TOC, for example,
enter a 2 in Heading 1’s TOC Level text box. You can exclude headings
from a TOC by deleting a number in a TOC Level box.
✦ Including table entry fields: To include text you marked for entry in the
TOC, select the Table Entry Fields check box in the Table of Contents
Options dialog box (later in this chapter, the sidebar “Marking oddball
text for inclusion in the TOC” explains how TOC fields work).
