Test yourself

Complete the following test so you can be sure you understand the material. Your answers are private, and test results are not scored.

Why would you need more than one TOC?

You don't, one long TOC is enough.

There's a limit to how long one TOC can be, so you need to create an overflow one.

In a long document you might want separate chapter TOCs, or a summary and a detailed TOC.

What is a table identifier?

If you have two (or more) TOCs, they are identified by a letter value, for example, TOC A, TOC B, and TOC C.

It's the numeric value given sequentially to each table in a document.

A wizard that tells you what sort of table will best present your information.

How do you open the Mark Table of Contents Entry dialog box to insert a TC field?

On the Insert tab, in the Text group, click Quick Parts, and then click Fields.


On the Insert tab, in the Links group, click Bookmark.

Press CTRL+F9

When would you use a bookmark TOC?

In a document where the entries for the different TOCs are scattered throughout the whole document.

In a document that has sequential chapters where you want a TOC for each chapter.

In a document that has different heading styles assigned to the entries for each different TOC.
