    Special numbers in TOC (Word 2000)

    Hi,

    I have a query from someone that asked how to add an A or an S into the page numbers and have them reflect in the TOC. Think of an Appendix at the end of a report. The page numbers may be A-1, A-1, A-3, etc.... I would like this reflected into the TOC page numbers... I initially suggested adding page numbers into that Appendix section, and then typing an A infront of the number field....but this of course will not reflect on the TOC. I have an idea that it could be a special field that needs to be inserted using INSERT | FIELDS...but I need some advice here..

    TX
    Regards,
    Rudi

    In the particular case of needing an Appendix letter, such as A you can do this by creating numbered styles for your appendices, with names like Appendix 1, Appendix 2 etc. These should have a numbering scheme that uses A, A.1, A.1.1 etc. You can then insert page numbers, click the Format button and set the "Include Chapter Number" check box.

    There is a more detailed example of how to do this, using Heading 7, 8 and 9 for your appendices, here.

    Edited to add
    Also have a look at this page on the MVPS web site.
