Adding a Table of Contents

The Table of Contents will be automatically generated based on your use of Heading styles throughout your document. If you don’t want the table to be based on Heading styles, click the Options button to designate the styles you want to use instead. For this tip, you will need Heading styles set up.

  1. Press Ctrl + Home.
  2. Go to Insert to Break and add a Next page section break.
  3. Add the title “Table of Contents†at the top of the new page, then press Enter.
  4. Go to Insert to Reference to Index and Tables.
