    Picking up custom page no. in ToC (Word XP)

    Hi Gang,

    At the end of my document I have Schedule A, B and C.
    Page numbering goes A-1, A-2, B-1, B-2, etc.
    I have not used Heading 1 for style.
    How can I include the A, B, C in the page numbering so it can get picked up by the ToC.

    This is very problematic in Word so I can only give you two poor options - one of which may sound less painful than the other depending on your particular document setup.

    There are two ways way to get the chapter numbers into a TOC.
    1. Build the usual TOC and ignore the page numbering until you have finished all text edits. Break the TOC field by selecting it and pressing Shift-Ctrl-F9. Now add the relevant extra letter everywhere it is required. Every time your pagination changes you will need to repeat the process.

    2. Use the Built-in Heading styles and put the Schedules into a separate document with a different outline list applied to the built-in Heading styles. Apply page numbering which includes the Heading 1 numbering - this can only be done with the built-in Heading styles AFAIK. In the Body document add an RD field at the end of the document which points to the separate Schedules document. This structure will allow the TOC to build correctly with the Heading numbers included with the TOC page numbers.

    Hi JChampagne,

    See the attached, which shows one way of doing this. Look closely at what I've done with the Heading Styles.
