Default Word - Table of contents with multiple reference points


Hello,
I'm currently working on putting a Word document together for a project listing examples of where each of our customers have benefited from certain products. Each entry includes various factors such as industry, products, company size, revenue etc. I'd like to be able to cross reference each section based on all of these factors, listing them in a table of contents under each other, so that users of the document will be able to find what they need quickly.
For example:
Contents:-
Insurance (page 3)
-> Microsoft Office (page 14, page 20)
-> Skype for Business (page 4, page 9, page 15)
-> Azure (page 6)
Construction (page 30)
-> Microsoft Office (page 35, page 38)
-> Azure (page 40, page 50, page 52)
I can't figure out the best way to do this without having duplicate entries. I have an Excel document I've been mapping responses on, which is a really good way of being able to filter by product/industry etc. to locate an entry specific for particular requirements.
I'd rather not have to use both documents, but after looking into this it seems the only way I'll be able to do this is to have the Excel document as a reference so users will need to locate a specific entry within the separate Word document this way. This may be because I'm not using the right search terms on Google!
If anyone can help, I'd appreciate it.
Thanks!

A Table of Contents can only reference individual headings and their pages; it can't group them. What you're describing is more of an Index, which Word can also create.

We, like most forums, have no objection to cross-posting, per se. All that's asked is that you provide links between all threads concerned when you do so, so people don't waste time looking for solutions that have been provided elsewhere.
