    TOA's in Word (Word 2000)

    What's the best way to generate a TOA in Word? Does the program Full Authority, which does a good job for WordPerfect, work with Word? Or is there some equivalent program for Word?

    A TOA is a Table of Authorities, which is found in legal documents. The TOA lists specific legal citations throughout the document.

    Russ, there is a TOA function built into Word. It's under Insert/Index and Tables in Word 2000. I believe the wording is slightly different in Word XP. It acts much like a TOC does - you have to mark the entries, then generate the table. My firm generally uses this approach.

    However, we do have Full Authority available and have some people using it. I have not used it myself, but one of our trainers has worked with it some and really likes it a lot. So Full Authority does work with Word. I would say try both approaches and see which one you like best.

    Thanks, Lee. I like Full Authority -- glad to hear it works with Word. (Well, Bill, you're an honest man. But now you know what a TOA is!)

    A Westlaw program, WestCiteLink, also does TOAs. And, unlike Full Authority, it's free. It also has some nifty features if you also use Westlaw. I've tried both and settled on WestCiteLink, although right now I can't remember if it was because of the cost or because I generally didn't like Full Authority (I hate Lexis). You can find it at: http://www.westgroup.com/store/product.asp...og_name=wgstore.

    Thank you, Michael. I'll let our system people know.
