    Headings not to show in Contents Page? (XP)

    Hi,

    I made some Heading Styles based upon the "Normal" style which is used in the Body Text.
    Strangely, the Contents Page incorporates these, whereas they should be excluded.

    Note that these styles WERE based upon the Heading Styles, but THEN I changed them to be based upon Normal.
    Is this a WordXP bug that although we change what style the heading is based upon, it somehow retains this attribute?

    Should I download all the WordXP fixes from officeupdate.microsoft.com to fix this?

    Thanks,

    m.q.

    If you select Insert/Index and Tables.... go to the Table of Contents tab and click Options..., you should be able to select/deselect the styles to be used in the TOC. Probably the styles you created are still checked here.

    Just clear the text box under "TOC level" for each of the styles you don't want in the Table of Contents.

    You include a style by entering a TOC level, and exclude a style by clearing the TOC level.

    Its more direct (and faster) to edit the TOC field code directly.

    Select the entire TOC and press Shift-F9
    The field code will look something like this {TOC o "1-3" t "UnNumbered H1,1,UnNumbered H2,2,UnNumbered H3,3"}

    o "1-3" tells the TOC to include any styles which have one of the first three outline levels associated with it. You can fiddle the numbers to include or exclude outline levels.
    Check the style definitions (Paragraph Format) to modify the outline level associated with a particular style which is unwanted in the TOC but appears there because it was created based on a style which did have an outline level (set its outline level to 'Body Text').

    t "UnNumbered H1,1,UnNumbered H2,2,UnNumbered H3,3" tells the TOC to include those three styles and assign the styles TOC 1, TOC 2 and TOC 3 respectively.

    You might want to remove the o "1-3" bit and add styles to the t area or reassign which TOC style is used for each included style.

    Thanks for that - the problem with that it seems is that it works AT THE TIME you are doing it.

    However, if you make these changes to the Template (i.e. grey out the boxes), it does not retain it in the template.
    You have to manually each time go in & grey out the tick boxes.

    How can I can make this change permanent?

    Shukran.

    What "Outline Level" do you have for the paragraph style? To check this look at Format > Style > Modify > Format > Paragraph
