Creating Table of Content

In Word, you can create a TOC based on a portion of the text in a paragraph without including the whole paragraph. You can mark text by using the Lead-in Emphasis feature with heading styles to include the text in a TOC.

To insert a table of contents, follow these steps:

  1. Start Word, and then open your document.
  2. Click an empty paragraph where you want to insert the TOC.
  3. On the Insert menu, point to Reference, and then click Index and Tables.

Note In Microsoft Office Word 2007 or in Word 2010, click Table of Contents in the Table of Contents group on the References tab. Then, click Insert Table of Contents.

4. Click the Table of Contents tab, and then click Show Outlining Toolbar.

Note In Word 2007 or in Word 2010, skip this step.
5. In the Index and Tables dialog box, select the options that you want to apply to your TOC, and then click OK.

Note In Word 2007 or in Word 2010, select the options that you want to apply to the TOC in the Table of Contents dialog box, and then click OK.
Note If the text that is contained in your document is not marked to be included in a TOC, you receive the following error message in your document instead of the TOC:
