MS Word 2007 - Table of contents

Hi all

I have a word 2007 document, formatted using word's buttons on top :)
Each chapter title is formatted as a "Ttile".

When i create teh TOC, the table of contents doesn't include the header of each chapter (all are formatted as "Title"). Is there a way to add them to the TOC?

I think i should modify the template, but how??

Thanks

You have to add it at the appropriate outline level.  By default the "Title" is set to body text.  Body text wil not display in your TOC.

Select the Home Menu, right Click the style on the toolbar -> Modify -> Format -> Paragraph -> Outline Level (Level 1) <OK>

You can set different styles at different outline levels.  Eachoutline level is indented appropriately in the TOC.

By default Headings indent (that is the built in Heading 1 - ... word styles).

So the TOC will look like this:

Heading 1
   Heading 2
       Heading 3
   Heading 2
Heading 1

Anything which has a Outline Level set to Body text will not be shown in the TOC, such as "Normal", "Subtitie", "Strong" etc.... these are all Body Text and so the TOC will not include them.
