Creating Table of Contents Problem

Creating Table of Contents Problem

Post by Marland Whitema » Fri, 07 Sep 2001 21:34:58



I am creating a Table of Contents in a large document using
the styles Heading 1 and Heading 2 from the Insert->Index
and Tables window. The problem I am having is that the
Heading 1 entry jumps up one line in all cases. For
instance, the first Heading 2 entry under each Heading 1 is
the one which should have been last under the prior Heading
1. This also occurs if I update the entire table.

Through trail and error I discovered that removing the
frame surrounding the Heading 1 entry allows the TOC to
format correctly.

How do I get the TOC to format correctly without this extra
step - either with or without the frame?

I'm using Word 2000 under Windows 95.

Thanks
Marland

Hi Marland

Are you saying that all your Heading 1 paragraphs are contained within
frames?

If so, are the frames *really* necessary?

If so, check which paragraphs the frames are anchored to - could it be that
some of them are anchored to the wrong ones?

Regards

Dave

Hi Dave,

Yes, all Heading 1 listings in the TOC are contained within
frames. No Heading 2 entries are in frames.

This is not something I tried or wanted to do. They are
automatically generated that way. In looking in the Table
of Contents creation window, I cannot find anything that
creates or eliminates frames when the TOC is generated.

According to the Frame window that pops up when I double
click on a frame, the frames are not anchored but "move
with text".

1. Problem creating a table of contents in Word 2000.

I'm having a problem with creating a table of contents, in Word 2000.

Basically, I want to have a table of contents that shows me a text that does
not appear in the actual document.  For instance, I want my TOC to look
something like this:

  Chapter 1 ..... 1
  Chapter 2 ..... 4
  Chapter 3 ..... 9

BUT I do not want to have the text 'Chapter 1', or 'Chapter 2' etc appear in
the document.

SO, I created lines that say 'Chapter 1', 'Chapter 2' etc in the text, gave
them the style 'Heading 1' and made the style hidden (which is what the help
says).  However, when I make the text hidden, and re-create the TOC, the
hidden text doesn't appear in the table of contents!!!!

What is wrong here?  Is the help wrong, or is there a bug?

Thanks,

Peter
