Creating a Table of Contents
Creating a Table of Contents
Once you’ve checked your headings to make sure they’re clear and concise and that you’ve
assigned a heading style Word will recognize, you can generate the table of contents. You
can use two different procedures to do this. The easiest way is to choose a TOC style from
the gallery and let Word do the rest. Or, if you prefer, you can use the Table Of Contents
dialog box to customize the look of the table in a way that its your needs. This section
takes you through both of these techniques.
Using a TOC Style
Word 2010 includes ready-made TOC styles that you can use to create a stylized,
professional looking table of contents. The easiest way to create one is to just click the look you
like in the Table Of Contents gallery. Begin by clicking in the document at the point at
which you want to add the TOC. Then, on the References tab, click the Table Of Contents
arrow to display the styles gallery (see Figure 23-1).
Figure 23-1 The Table Of Contents gallery displays a number of styles you can use to create
your TOC.
Click the table style you want to create. Word compiles the TOC and places it at the
cursor position, using the headings in your document and indenting the heads based on the
headline style they reflect (see Figure 23-2).
