Just checking... have you also set the Show Levels box on the main (no
subtab) panel of the TOC thing to 3?

I'm using Word 2003 on Windows XP, Service Pack 3, and have run into a
problem. I can't get the TOC to pick up more that three levels even
though I am using Word headings-Heading 1, Heading 2, and so forth, and
I select the headings and assign levels under Options in the Index and
Tables window.

Does anyone know how to get this to work? I don't usually use more than
three levels, but I'm working on a guide for IT systems and need the
extra levels.

Thanks in advance, Trish
