This is a follow-up question from another thread here:
Trying to get my head around Styles & Headings in MS Word
in which the following two expert comments were made:
Heading styles automatically integrate into a Table of Contents
When heading styles are consistently applied throughout a document, a user can create a table of contents with the click of a button
Can someone explain how best to create the Table of Contents and also how to do it so that it contains links for quick access to the sections of the document which it references.
