Updating a table of contents in word

Also, I'll show you how to make your document look good using Word's built-in heading styles and the multilevel list option.

I am sure that everyone who reads this article right now had to deal with a really long document in Microsoft Word at least once in their lives. Depending on the project, it might be dozens or even hundreds of pages long!

A little bit of effort on your part will make things easier for anyone leafing through the text later on.

Fortunately, there are plenty of places online that offer up templates for exactly this purpose — although the quality of individual examples can vary quite dramatically.

When you have such a big document with chapters and subchapters it turns out to be very hard to navigate in the document searching for necessary information.

Luckily, Word allows you to create a table of contents, making it easy to refer to the relevant sections of your document, and therefore it is a must-do task for document writers.

Deciding how to divide up your document into chapters or sections is an important factor in deciding what sort of table of contents is appropriate.



But what if you’ve got figures and/or tables and you want to show those in the contents pages, too?

You could create a table of contents manually, but it would be a real waste of time. In this post I will show you how to create a table of contents in Word in an automatic way and also how to update it just in a few clicks.

    Either way, asking them why they haven't answered (or worse, getting offended by their lack of response) won't help you.
