Default Table of contents

How do you establish table of contents with page numbers after running mail merge directory in document?



Table of contents shows up
Topic 1....1
Topic 2.....1
Topic 3.....1
Topic 4.....1

Should be

Topic 1.....1
Topic 2.....2
Topic 3.....3
Tooic 4.....4

If you're using a Directory/Catalogue merge without recourse to Section breaks, the page #s will necessarily differ. The repetition you're getting suggests you're using a Letter merge.

I have no idea what this means or how to do it. I merge rows of a spreadsheet into a word document with about 50 pages but when running table of contents it does not list the table of contents properly page 1 to 50..instead they are all page 1.

As I've already said, that's probably because you're NOT using a Directory/Catalogue merge despite the fact you said you're "running mail merge directory". The different merge types are listed under Mailings|Start Mail Merge.
