    TOC (Word 2003)

    Hello, there is a sentence in my document that keeps on showing up in my TOC, which is based on styles. I am attaching the phrase and its entry in a TOC. I don't konw why this entry keeps on showing up in my TOC, since it is neither heading 1, heading 2, etc. Does anyone know why and if so, can you tell me how to remove it from the TOC?

    Sincerely, JMT

    Where did you find the description of the style?

    How can you see that my TOC is based on outline levels? I think it is based on Styles. I just inserted another table of contents and was sure to uncheck the Outline levels box and it came out the same.

    Sincerely,

    When you edit a style, the dialog shows a 'style based on' setting where one style can inherit its characteristics from another style. If you go into the Format>Paragraph setting from this dialog then you can see the Outline Level which is associated with the style.

    To see what a TOC is based on, select it and press Shift-F9 to view the field codes. If it looks like this {TOC o "1-3"} then the TOC will contain paragraphs which use the outline levels from 1 to 3. If the TOC field code looks like this {TOC t "Heading 1,1,Heading 2,2,Heading 3,3"} then the TOC will contain the first three heading levels only regardless of the outline levels associated.
