I dropped a table of contents onto page 2 of a Word document.  I'd prefer that the TOC didn't reference the document's title page or the TOC page.  How do I exclude these pages from the TOC?  The title page and TOC are also in separate document sections.  Excluding sections, rather than pages, would work as well.

Select the part of the document you want included and bookmark it. Then edit your TOC field to include the \b switch and the name you gave to the bookmark. For example, if you assigned the name "forToC" to the content after the TOC page and before the Index in a multisection document, your TOC field could look like {TOC \b forToC \o "1-3"} to have it collect only the outline levels 1-3 within the bookmarked part of the document.

To edit the field code, press Alt-F9 to toggle the field code view.

Nice.  That would have taken me a while to figure out on my own.
