    How to create a Table of Contents
    About Table of Contents


    The following are steps to create a dynamic Table of Contents (TOC):

    Insert a Table of Contents:

                    Navigate to the “References” Tab, then Table of Contents, and Choose a Style and click to insert

    Add sections to the TOC in DDP Files:

                    Use the ListNum field code { LISTNUM  NumberDefault \s 1 } in document section that you’d like to be marked as the first item in the TOC. Note the “\s 1” switch indicates the start number for the TOC.

                    For additional sections, use { LISTNUM  NumberDefault \l 1 }. Note the switch is “\l 1” now, not “\s 1”, this is to indicate the level of the TOC item. For example, “\l 2” would indicate the first subsection under an a “\l 1” item.

    1. Level 1 “\l 1”
      1. Level 2 “\l 2”
        1. Level 3 “\l 3”
          1. Level 4 “\l 4”

    Note: All sections to be included in the TOC should have a Style that supports being in a TOC. For example, the "Normal" and "No Spacing" styles will not be included in the TOC, but "Heading" and "Heading 2" styles will be.


    TOC In DDPs:

    Check the Keep Word Formulas field (on the DDP) - You may need to drag this field onto your layout by going to "Edit Layout"

    Set the Document Output type to Originals (on the Delivery Option)

    There should be a Merge Type specified for each DDP file to be included in the TOC; That is, all items in the TOC should be in a single output file. (on the File Options for each DDP File)
