I used to use a template for a long report which included a font called Frutiger 45. I dont use it anymore as my business stlyles have changed however I have a new template based on Calibri which whenI update the TOC (refrences?updtae Table/update entire table) it updates the contents and switches back to the old font.

Any ideas very welcome

of course it will depend of the version of Word you are using...

Word 2007 & later, display the styles (ALT+CTRL+SHIFT+S) and select a line with the level (TOC 1 paragraph style)

at the bottom of the Styles panel, select the Manage Styles button (third from left)

check the button New document based on this template

click the Modify button and change the paragraph style to whatever font you require.

this is for Word 2010:Modify styles

Thanks so much for your help, It wasnt the exact solution but it led me to it. The TOC was based on the hyperlink style, i really don,t know why , but I changed the font there and all was well.

Cheers

yes - the TOC entries are hyperlinks to the corresponding part of the document!

which makes perfect sense now you have helped me find that out but was causing a monumental headache earlier.
Thanks again for your wise words.
