    Custom TOC (2000 SR-1)

    Is there any way to create a TOC such as the following (automatically, of course!):

    Chapter 1. Conclusions ...................1

    I have separate styles formatting both the chapter heading and the chapter title.

    Thanks for any ideas.

    Re: Custom TOC (2000 SR-1)

    Generally, when you set up a heading like that, you've customized it to start with Chapter #. followed by a tab (I hope). Problem is, I'm not sure why this isn't working for you now. If you don't have Chapter 1 as part of your numbered Heading 1 style, you should.

    Let me know if you need more help. [img]/forums/images/smilies/smile.gif[/img]

    Thanks. I didn't set it up that way, so I won't sweat it.

    Beats me why one can't massage these things a little more, but what do I know? I'm just glad to have the table.

    If you have time to play... you could add the "Chapter 1" numbering to the definition of the TOC1 style. Maybe. I haven't tried it myself.

    That's exactly what I was looking for. It looks a little complex for the time I have now, but I will have a play later, or if my client insists on that format.

    Thanks!

    Phil,

    There is a style option for this format, but I couldn't get it to work right off the bat. However, right now I don't have time to experiment. I will give it another shot later.

    BTW, there was no attachment to your message.

    Thanks,

    Edited to add attachment
    Hi Kathleen:
    Not as difficult as it sounds. See the attached document for a modification to TOC1. The way you do it is to
    1. select the style TOC1
    2. Format/Style/TOC1/Modify...
    3. Choose Format/Numbering/ (I used Outline Numbering)
    4. In the "Number Format" box, type Chapter & a space before the number, being careful not to delete the number field.
    5. Click "More" & link level to TOC1 style.
    6. Go back to Format/Tab & choose a right aligned tab with a leader whereever you want it. OK your way out of the dialog boxes.

    I have field shading (Tools/Options/View tab) set for always, so it looks a little funny on screen with the TOC shaded & the Chapter # not shaded, but you can change these options.

    Hope this helps.

    Re: Custom TOC (2000 SR-1)

    Got it. It doesn't work with my doc -- I'm sure it has something to do with the way the styles are set up -- I end up with "umpteen" chapters. The original chapter headings were way too long, IMHO, so I had to tinker with them.

    I also just found out the client doesn't care much what it looks like or even if it's accurate (???), <img src=/S/scratch.gif border=0 alt=scratch width=25 height=29>
    so I'll play on my own time later and see how to make it work the way I want it to.

    Thanks for all your help -- I've learned a lot.
