In Word 2007, I would like to link various custom Headings, Subheads, and Headers back to the Table of Contents page so that changes are made only on that page and auto-update elsewhere in the document. Is there a way to do this without using Word's auto TOC function? I have a set of styles for existing TOC, Headers, etc., that I would like to keep, but want to reduce the amount of cutting and pasting that has to be done if titles, etc., are reworded, without resorting to a global search and replace.

I don't understand why you would want to do any cutting and pasting rather than use Words TOC feature? Can you explain What benefits you are getting by doing it manualy?

There are a prescribed set of formats for the whole document (I didn't create them), which I'd like to preserve. The idea is, if we change the name of a section of the document I'd like it to update in the TOC. I know this happens when using the Word TOC function, but I would then have to create a custom-formatted TOC (using the set of formats I didn't create), which I expect would take a long time. ALSO the changed text would not necessarily update in the relevant header - hence lots of cutting and pasting, or at least searching and replacing, which I would like to avoid.

If using WORD toc is the way to go, then that's fine... I just thought it would be useful to know HOW to link to text or a text field in Word if it is possible. In fact, our information needs make it such that having this functionality - the ability to link to or return text located within the same document - would be useful outside of the TOC entirely.

You could bookmark the approprate headings and then insert Hyperlinks as your links or you could use Cross-references to link to specific headings.
