Kirk Turner wondered: <<When I insert a table of contents into my
manual, the table does not include the 1st and 2nd level headings. I'm
almost sure that I haven't set the TOC options correctly, but after
changing just about every setting on the options tab, I'm at a loss at
to what to do. Any thoughts/suggestions? >>
Yup: Look in the Styles dialog box instead. <g> Word only considers its
own built-in heading styles to be levels 1 through 3. To get any custom
styles into the TOC, open the Format menu, select Styles, then select
and edit each of your custom heading styles in turn: Click the Modify
button, select Paragraph under the Format menu at the bottom of that
dialog, then at the top of the dialog box, edit the "Outline level" to
the correct level in the heading hierarchy.
