Please discern this is a question for Word 2007 and NOT Word 2003

Example First:
In Word 2003, one could mark the Titles for a Table of Contents (TOC) by using Alt-Shift-o, highlighting the Title and marking it. Continuew with a number of Titles and then move on to creating the TOC. Then one could press Ctrl-F9 and create the parenthesis for the TOC format, insert the TOC format, update the TOC field and be done.

Word 2007 is definitely different.
I am using the Word 2003 format for inside the {  } but it is not working at all.

Example:
{TOC \o  \f\d\z\u}

Please assist.  I can create the first TOC in a document using the References menu but when I try to put another TOC in the document after marking them with a different letter, it still shows up ass the first TOC

Thanks
Steve

Using the Reference Ribbon: Make sure entries/headings have the correct (or uniform) styles and format.
Highlight and Mark entries.
Select Table Of Contents, Insert Table Of Contents.
Select Options button.  Check/corrects styles as necessary.  (Styles will be checked according to entries marked.)
OK out.

You will need to have different styles to mark to entries for the each table.

Example:  If you used Heading 1 in the first table, you can't use it in the second unless you give it a different name.

When asked if want to replace TOC select NO.

HI Ettircet,
    I have and can stil do this in Word 2003 as I mentioned but not in 2007.  

When one marks for a TOC they can designate the different letters. Then modify the TOC code applicably.  You have lost me bit on your answer.  Can you clarify a little please.

You need to give the styles different names.  Can use same style but must give two different names.
