Default Page Numbering

I have a unique problem with respect to page numbering. I have a document that is broken up into PARTs and SECTIONS and Headings.



I've used the Heading 1 for the PART Titles, Heading 2 for the SECTION titles and Heading 3 for the Headings.

All will populate accordingly into my TOC.

However, the page numbering requirements dictate that the PART, SECTION and page of each heading be reflected in the TOC.

Example: 2-3-11 Where 2 is the Part, 3 is the Section and 11 is the page number within the respective part.

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers,

Tony

Hi Tony,

That's not how a Word table of Contents (TOC) works. While you can have all three elements, you can't have them in the format you've described. As an example of what Word can do, see the following (excuse the alignment issues
Code:
Contents                                                         Page
1     Preamble                                                                                                   3

2.1    General Principles                                                                                            3
2.2    Client Record Maintenance – line item L001                                                       3
2.3    Staffing and Purchasing – line item L002                                                           4

4.1    Training team wages – line items L200 to L201                                                 20
4.2    Training team travel costs – line items L203 to L204                                         21
4.3    Training team vehicle costs – line items L205 to L206                                       22
4.4    Training team expenses – line item L207                                                         23
4.5    Trainees’ wages – line items L208 to L210                                                       24

With the above, the major headings represent the PART, the minor headings represent the SECTION and there is a page # for each.

Paul,

Thank you for your response. I understand how the TOC ordinarily works. By configuring page numbering to reflect both Chapter and Page one can configure the TOC to look as follows:

TOC.PNG

However, I wanted to configure page numbering and if necessary to have a tOC that looks as follows:

TOC2.PNG

The TOC you pictured is the "plain jane" if you will and I need something a little more elaborate.

Thanks again.

Cheers,

Tony

Hi Tony,

I understood the objective from your first post but, as I replied, the 'plain jane' format is about the most you'll get from a Word TOC. Your 'something a little more elaborate' would require considerably more work to implement, especially if you want a conventional numbering layout in the body of the document. Ultimately, your custom Table of Contents would probably have to be built up from a combination of three cross-reference fields per heading - a cross-reference to the heading text, followed by a tab, then a cross-reference to the heading number, a separator character (eg period) then the cross-reference to the heading page number. You'd probably also want to format the different heading level cross-references in different Styles, just like those of a Word TOC. If there's a lot of this to be done, you'd probably want to automate the process via a macro.
