Click anywhere on the table of contents, then click Update Table… Choose to update either the entire table or just the page numbers.
Remember to do this before you finalize your document so the table of contents will be current.
I would be very happy and grateful, if someone had an idea of how to fix this . Please follow the directions below to update your Table of Contents Automatically.
If you added or removed headings or other table of contents entries in your document, you can quickly update the table of contents. On the References tab, in the Table of Contents group, click Update Table. Click Update page numbers only or Update entire table.
Word allows you to quickly and easily create a table of contents, based upon the headings in your document.
Exactly how you do this has been covered in other issues of Word Tips, but suffice it to say that you can generate a TOC based upon any headings that are formatted using Word's built-in heading styles—Heading 1, Heading 2, etc.
Click Table of Contents on the References Tab, and choose one of the types of tables of contents available.
The two automatic tables can be updated when you change the heading text, rearrange the order of your content, or change between heading styles.
Math Works does not warrant, and disclaims all liability for, the accuracy, suitability, or fitness for purpose of the translation.
Apply the Heading 2 style to sub-headings, Heading 3 style to sub-sub-headings etc.
If you don't like the way the heading styles look (eg, you want a different font or font size or colour), don't format the text directly. If you attempt to insert another custom or built-in table of contents that will be placed in a content control, then the new one will over-ride the existing one.
When I send the document to a colleague and go through the same process on his/hers computer, updating the table of contents gives me the following message: "NO TABLE OF CONTENTS ENTRIES FOUND".
And I have to apply the TOC levels to the different styles all over again (Right click on TOC; Select Edit Field ...; Under Field Properties select Table of Contents; in the box, select Options).
