Table of Contents III: Use fields to create a TOC and create multiple TOCs

Animation of how to set up TC field entries for your TOC.

To use TC fields, you need to set up the TC entries and then add them to your TOC field so that it collects the TC entries.

Before you start, determine the text and the level you want that text to appear in the TOC. Also, if you have multiple TOCs, you'll need to choose the letter designation, or Table identifier, of the TOC. For now, we'll use the default table, "C," which places the entry in the main TOC. You'll learn more about table identifiers in the next lesson, which deals with multiple TOCs.

Here's how to set up a TC field:

  1. Select the document text that you want to include in the TOC.
  2. Press ALT+SHIFT+O to open the Mark Table of Contents Entry dialog box.
  3. In the dialog box, edit the text in the Entry text box if you need to.
  4. If there's more than one TOC in a document, each has a different letter to identify it; click the Table identifier text box arrow and then the letter of the table where you want this entry to be displayed. If there's only one TOC, leave this unchanged.
  5. Select the TOC level for this entry in the Level box.

Click Play above the illustration to see an animated example of setting up TC field entries for your TOC. Then continue on to the next screen to learn how to add the marked entries into your TOC.
