Default Creating Table of Contents From a Custom Style

I would like to create a Table of Contents automatically from my chapter headings and sub headings.



At the moment, I have created a custom style for the headings, but MS Word doesn't create a TOC based on this style. It will only create a TOC for an already built-in style.

Any ideas what I can do to have Word recognize and use my custom style in the TOC?

Appreciate the help,

JH

You can select which styles to include in a TOC in the Table of Contents dialog box. I can't give you any specific steps for MacWord, because I have only used Windows versions.

You may also have to UNCHECK the default ones first.

Hello,
Press Ctrl F9 to create French braces for TOC field
{ TOC \t "MyStyleName1,1,MyStyleName3,1,Heading 3,2"}

Just insert any styles between the quotes and a comma before the TOC 1, 2 3 level you wish to use and so on.
