    TC Fields

    I must have forgotten a step to create TC fields - it no longer works for me.

    I press Ctrl + F9, type the letters tc, type my text between double quotes. I get an error message that there are no TOC entries to be found. What am I missing?

    Thanks!

    Use the Insert|Index and Tables dialog instead - its a whole lot easier. You are probably missing a o or t entry but the dialog will take care of you.

    Hi Cheri:

    You may not be doing anything wrong in so far as tc fields are concerned. However, after you mark your entries, you must still go into Insert/Index & Tables/Table of Contents tab/Options. You must tick the "table entry fields"; otherwise, Word looks for heading entries by default. If you have no headings, you will get the error message.

    Hope this helps.

    Thank you so much. Ticking the table entry fields did the trick. Funny, I don't remember ever doing that before.

    You're welcome. As time goes on, you'll find there are a lot of things you don't remember ever doing before. <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>
