Default Table of contents, remove spacing and put in 2 columns - need help urgently!


I just finished a report in which I used the default MS Word Table of Contents Template.

I need to remove the automatic line spacing it gives between headings and also make the Table of Contents into 2 Colums with the page numbers on the right end of each column.

I can't seem to figure it out so any help would be hugely appreciated!

Another thing... how do I get the font in the TOC to be the same as the font in the headings instead of the default....

Many Thanks

As far as spacing, you can go back to References / Table of Contents (drop down) / choose Insert Table of Contents / on the Table of Contents dialog box that pops up, choose Modify / then highlight the specific level that you have incorrect spacing appearing on and choose Modify again / then go to Paragraph / and modify Spacing Before, Spacing After, or Line Spacing. When you go back to your ToC, the spacing problem should be resolved.

W/regard to the columns, block the Table of Contents / go to the Page Layout tab / Choose the Columns drop down (within the Page Setup area) and choose two columns)

Hope this helps.
