    Word (97)

    If I have separate sections (separated by section breaks) in my document and want to generate a TOC that lists the section and page numbers as 1-1, 2-1, 3-1, etc., how would I do that?

    Also, I have a table in my document in which I would like to have one column line up with decimals. How would I do that?

    To have the column entries line up on the decimal, just put a decimal tab stop where you want it (after selecting the column)

    Hi margiep,

    For the first question, always start the section with a particular paragraph style (Heading1 perhaps?). Insert a page number in the Header/Footer. Click the Format Page Number button on the header/footer toolbar. Check the "Include chapter number" checkbox and select the style with which you start each section. Enter a value in the start-at field.

    HTH,

    Chris

    As an addition to your information, use Ctrl + tab to move to the tab stop.

    In a table, just tab, right?

    Tab takes you to the next cell, so to move to a tab stop within the cell it's ctrl+tab.

    Re: Word (97)

    I see what I'm doing differently. I was putting one decimal tab in the cell (assuming that the purpose of the cell was to contain only 1 number, e.g. 1.34) and tabbing into the next cell. The IP stops at the decimal tab ready for the next decimal number.

    If there are several tabs in the cell, then Ctrl+Tab gets you to the next one. I think I got it.

    If you set a decimal tab in a table the numbers will automatically align to the tab stop without a preceding tab character.

    Note too that the text alignment must be on left align for this to work properly.
