    TOC page numbers start at 1 (Word 2002 /XP SP3)

    In one of my Word docs the TOC heading page numbers all display and start with number 1.

    I cant remember if I had seen an article about this being a Word bug. can someone jolt my memory.

    many thanks

    Have you tried updating the TOC (select the TOC and press F9)?

    This happens to me all the time, esp. when I am using Print Preview. As Hans says, updating the TOC makes it go away.

    As long as you have your fields set to update when a document is printed, this isn't much more than a visual annoyance (though it is disconcerting the first few times it happens).

    Yes Hans I have selected the TOC and pressed F9 to update the TOC. But the result is the updated TOC still displays all the page numbers as "1".

    cheers

    We have two different threads discussing the same problem. I will lock this thread, so we can continue in <post:=580,056>post 580,056</post:>.
