    Table of contents for various documents (Office xp, Wind 2000)

    When creating an offer of our products to a potential customer we produce several documents (files). Each of the documents have a normal table of contents. But.... how can I create a table of contents for all the different documents? Do they have to be connected in some way? (cannot merge???). What about the page numbers??

    You can reference all the TOCs in all the documents by using an RD field. The syntax is:

    {toc etc.}{RD "FilePath"} where the curly braces are inserted using Ctrl+F9m, not typed.

    Note that the filepath MUST use double backslashes between folders. The page numbers will be the same as in the original documents; however, they are not hyperlinks.
    Cheers,

    Thanks Phil,

    I shall try this.
    It will be of great help to the sales people when they can make a table of contents for many documents.

    I probably have to make a .dot file such that they can choose which documents to be included in the table of contents.
    May be i come back later with more questions to this.


    Many thanks

    One way to do this is to create an autotext entry to insert the RD field & an autotext entry to insert the TOC field for each document. You could even put these on a toolbar for your users.
