Inserting a Table of Contents
A table of contents provides an outline of main topics and page locations. Word builds a table of contents based on the styles in a document that you choose. By default, Heading 1 is the first-level entry, Heading 2 the second level, and so on. In a printed table of contents, a leader, a line whose style you select, connects an entry to its page number. In web documents, entries become hyperlinks. Hide nonprinting characters before creating a table of contents so text doesn’t shift to other pages as you print.
