    Removing table of contents hyperlinks (Word 2000)

    Is there a way to remove the hyperlinks embedded in table of contents entries? The "delete" option in the hyperlink context menu is grayed out. Does it make any difference that I'm using a template from Word 97?

    Press Alt+F9 to display field codes. The table of contents will look like
    <code>
    { TOC o "1-3" h }
    </code>
    (There may be other switches). Remove the <code>h</code> switch, it's what causes the table of contents to act as a series of hyperlinks.
    Press Alt+F9 to hide field codes, then press F9 to update the table of contents.

    Thanks!

    Will I have to do that in every document in which I generate a TOC? If so, is there a way to incorporate the change into the templates I use?

    I'm using Word 2002. In the dialog in which you create a TOC, there is a check box to specify whether the TOC will contain hyperlinks. Is this check box available in Word 2000?

    There's no hyperlink option in 2000, at least not in TOC create dialog.

    Yes, a search confirms that. Deleting the h switch seems to be the only way to remove the hyperlinks from a TOC in Word 2000.

    Hans,

    Since a TOC is already set up in the template I use, I fixed the problem "permanently" by deleting the /h switch in the template.

    Thanks again for your help. I don't know that I would have been able to figure this out on my own.
