Subject:Re: Auto TOC in MS Weird 6.0 From:William Meisheid <meisheid -at- EROLS -dot- COM> Date:Mon, 4 Aug 1997 11:34:11 -0400
Word uses internal bookmarks to update the TOC but due to a failure in
design does not delete them after each update so they grow and grow and
grow.As a result the almost infinate number of internal bookmarks use up
the available stack space, and you get out of memory errors. That is why
D2H has a TOC fix.
The other option is to open a new document and paste all the text, minus
the TOC and Index fields, from the original document into the new
document. This usually fixes the problem.
