Hi,

I am using Word 2010.

I have a really long Word document with different topics.

I would like to create a Table of content at the top of that document so that I can click on that topic & it will take me directly to that topic without me trying to scroll down the whole document to find that topic. ( Just like a book in Word Format with table of content & clicking the topic to go directly to that topic without going thru the whole book page by page )

I tried to create a hyperlink for each topic but Word created the hyperlink at the same place where the topic was listed, so that doesn't help.

I also tried to copy & paste that hyperlink at the top of the document but that didn't work either.

Any help would be highly appreciated.

Thanks

A previous thread indicated problems encountered when trying to update a Table of Contents and Table of Figures, etc. using Word 2007. I couldn't find any solutions to that message. I am having the same problem. I tell it to update the Table of Contents or Table of Figures, and it does that correctly, but as soon as I click "print" the page numbers all change to 2! Any ideas?

Hey guys, (BTW: Using MS Word 2007)

I fixed my last problem regarding the "link to previous section". I wasn't using "section breaks"! Silly me.

Now, however, in a new document, I face a new challenge. ATM, my document is structure rather well tbh. I have my front page and contents page seperated via "section breaks".

The next page is Introduction which follows the section break from the Contents Page. I have labelled the header with the style "Header 1".

Then I tried creating a table of ontents on the TOC page (References -> Insert Table of Figures). Now, in this bit, the "Table of Contens" tab is inactive (not highlighted) for some reason, so I can't automatically generate my TOC.

Anyone know why this is?

Is it to do with my sections breaks, the way my styles have been set up, or something else?

Thanks guys!

Hello,

After creating a document, I used Word 2007's Table of Contents feature to build the T of C. In the document, I had used text boxes to place some images in the document, using the text-box layout feature to wrap text next to the text boxes, whose right-hand edges align with the right-hand margin of the text.

I noticed that where those text boxes have been placed, the level 3 subheads (which have been included in the T of C set up) do not appear in the T of C when I build it. The ones on either side do, but not the one where the image in a text box is.

Any suggestions? I want to retain the text wrapping feature. Is there a way to do that and have the T of C function work?

Thanks,

I have a drive at work that is shared by many people. Within it are many folders to organize all the files. At times it is difficult to locate certain files; even using Explorer search becuase the file name may not be known.

What I would like to do is have a "table of contents" document or program to open that displays all the files, showing their folder location, and a link to that file.

I was able to do this somewhat in Excel but with 3,000+ files, doing so manually would be painstakingly difficult and time consuming.

It would be perfect if it was updated automatically, as these files change on a daily basis; adding new files and deleting old ones.

Is this possible? What would be the best program for it? Access?

Normally when updating the table of contents you get the option to either update the whole TOC, or just the page numbers. This feature (a dialogue box that pops up to ask which one you want) is usually available after clicking "update TOC." It has always worked for me in the past on the same computer, running same software. All of a sudden now it only lets me update the whole table - the dialogue box that asks which one I want no longer pops up. This is a big problem for the work I'm doing.

Is there other software I can download and use in Word 2003 for a table of contents? Is Word 2010 any easier?

Answer:Table of Contents in Word 2003

I finally figured out how to do it manually. If you know that you need to type in a number that corresponds to the ruler under "Tab Stop Position," these are pretty good directions to do it manually, if anyone has trouble with it in the future. It is pretty easy to do once you know you just have to enter a number corresponding to the ruler under "Tab Stop Position."

Answer:Table of Contents in Word 2000

Only if you make the entire TOC text the same size as the page numbers or create the TOC manually.

You can try, for instance, copying the TOC from your doc, open a new doc. Hit Edit-Paste special-Unformatted text.

Format the tabs and leaders again, etc. Set your font sizes anywhere you like for anything you like.

Put that back in your doc and remove the auto-TOC.

Hello friends, I notice there is a problem with a Table of Contents in WORD 2007 which I've just generated. In one section of the table, both the subheading and the contents of the entire paragraph appear. I tried to redo it but the same problem keeps occurring. I dont need the contents of the paragraph; I only need the heading of the paragraph in the Table of contents. The rest of the table is perfect. Now I will need to edit the table to remove the contents of the paragraph and leave the heading in the table. How do I do it? Please help. Thanks.

Answer:Table of Contents in MS WORD 2007

I cannot speak for Word 2007, but in previous incarnations of Word the ToC takes its details from the various heading formats, e.g. Heading 1 and Heading 2 etc. It may be that the paragraph wording is formatted based on one of these headings rather than using normal text. Try reformatting it see if that resolves it.

When I close out of Print Preview and update the Table of contents, all the page numbers in the table of contents change to the number 5.

I can close the document without saving any changes and then when I re-open the document, the table of contents has the correct numbers...... even stranger... when I print the document, even though on screen the numbers are correct, the printed version tells me that everything is on Page 9!!!

Answer:Word 2007 -- contents within a table

Sounds like he pasted into a cell of a table. You can remove the table formatting, and you should be able to keep the entire contents of it, by just selecting somewhere in the table then Layout>Data>Convert to Text.

You might find that there are several ways of converting the table to text (Paragraphs to tabs, whatever) so if you don't get quite what you want just do an Undo, and try another way.

Hi,

I am still using Word 2003 (believe it or not).

Recently I installed it on a new virtual machine (VM).

On the original VM the table of contents (i.e. in Word's menu: Insert --> Reference --> Index and Tables --> Table of Contents) the TOC entries produced worked as hyperlinks. That is, when the reader clicked on one of them, Word jumped to that page number and section.

In the new VM, the TOC's don't function as hyperlinks. When the mouse goes over one of the entries, a message appears under the cursor "Current document, CTRL+click to follow link". Either just clicking or clicking while holding down the ctrl key does nothing.

Any ideas of what setting may be wrong?

I'm editing a document whose table of contents is shaded. This document has had multiple authors so I don't know who set this up. This shading does not print. I want to get rid of the shading. I tried the Forms Toolbar. I removed the protection and clicked on form shading. That got rid of the shading, but now my cursor will not sit on the table of contents. I tried to put it on the TOC and it just jumps back above the TOC.

Any tips would be appreciated. Thanks.
 

Answer:Can't delete shading in table of contents in Word

Shading on the TOC indicates it is an auto generated field, and not just text. Its not "shading" per se... hence it doesn't print.

Depending on your version of Word, try Tools - Options - View
A drop down box should allow setting Field Shading to Never.

I don't recommend it though, as you can't then tell what is a field and what is text anywhere in any document.

You cant "edit" the TOC, as its not editable text, but auto generated text. Therefore your cursor may behave as you describe.

Perhaps someone can explain this Word 2010 behaviour that I have noticed for quite some time. I create a Word document with a table of contents then close the document. Several days later when I open the document, one or both of these two strange behaviours are noticed:

(1) When I try to scroll the document using the mouse wheel, nothing happens for anywhere from 2-8 seconds. After that period the document will scroll normally. Note that if I close and then re-open the document, this strange behaviour recurs.

(2) Ctrl-click on a table of contents entry should **immediately** jump to that entry in the document. However when I open the Word document for the first time there can be a delay of 2-8 seconds before Word will jump to that entry. After that period, additional Ctrl-clicks on table of contents entries will work properly by immediately jumping to the appropriate entry. Note that if I close and then re-open the document, this strange behaviour recurs.

Answer:Microsoft Word - table of contents strange behaviour

You could try repairing Office, to do that open Control Panel, select Programs & Features, then scroll down to Microsoft Office 2010, right click on it & select Repair, this will give you a couple of repair options.

Some people leave their computer on 24 hours a day, so if you do, try doing a reboot or shut down & a restart. This seems to clear some problems that can cause your problems.

To All, Here is a full summary of the situation and hope someone can give me good advice:

When I am in a Word 2007 document with headers, they are from multlists and which are linked to the headers when creating the mulitlist. One of my headers, Header 2, shows up first as Section 1.1 as in multilist set up, under the enter formatting for number, I put in the word Section-1.1 and that also sets up the numbering for the heading I use going forward.

When I cross reference to the number as the paragraph number in the cross reference, it always shows up as Section 1.1, not just the number 1.1, and I read someplace that if you right click the cross reference, click on Toggle Field Codes, the field code that shows up is { REF _Ref354083577 \n \h }. I then add at the end of the field code ‘\t’ and save it, update the field, and the cross reference shows up as 1.1, not Section 1.1

So in the paragraph when I want to refer to an Exhibit I am adding at the end of the document, I refer to the Exhibit in the paragraph as “Exhibit 1.1”. And do it by typing in the word Exhibit and the cross reference to Section 1.1, with the field change to “\t” and in the paragraph is shows up as “Exhibit 1.1.

Then as a new page at the end of the document, which is separated, I click on Heading 9 which is set up from the mulitlist and linked to Heading 9, with just the word Exhibit and not a number type thru the multilist process.

Answer:Word 2007 - Cross Reference For Table of Contents

I read recently that there might be a way to add SEQ fields next to the page number in the footer, and so I did iti, as to the Identifier, I put in the word "Exhibit'

Is there a way to use this Field and include the cross reference to the numbers I cross reference to as stated above, and then modify the TOC field to recognize the changes to the Page number that then includes the number 1.1- before the page number in the table of contents and any words I want before the page number in the Table of Contents.

Also, since the header is not set up with a number, there is no Caption to refer to, so is there a way to add a SEQ field or other field before the cross reference at the top of the page or make the cross reference the Caption for the heading.
And based on any of the foregoing, what do I change to the TOC field to show the number 1.1.-1 as the page number?

Answer:Problem with text in Table of Contents in Word 2007

Hi carolannjo, welcome to TSG.

This is NOT at all intuitive, so it's no wonder you had problems finding it. What you need to do is highlight your TOC, and then from the Table of Contents tab, select "Insert Table of Contents" at the bottom. Then select Modify and then TOC 2. Select Modify again and then you can see all of the formatting for that style. You can expand the spacing using the paragraph arrows and it will show you a preview as you do it. Once you have it the way you'd like, choose OK several times to get out of the dialog box. Then it will ask if you want to replace the existing TOC and you can say yes. That should fix the spacing, but let us know if it doesn't work.

When printing a document with a Table of Contents, a selection window is displayed with the following:

Word is updating the Table of contents. Select one of the following options:
_Update Page Number Only
_Update Entire Table
OK Cancel

If Cancel is clicked, the document does not print.
If you pick one of the options, the print screen will display. However, on a few occasions the TOC has altered itself in this process.

Any clue why this message suddenly appeared and to only certain users?

BTW - We are using WINDOWS XP SP2. We use heading styles to identify which items to appear in the TOC.

Any thoughts appreciated.

I've recorded a macro to update the Table of contents in my document, but when I run the macro it duplicates the headings. The document is somewhat complicated in that it is an access report that is saved as RIch Text Format and inserted into the word document. There is macro in word that is used to clear all page breaks and another that formats all the main topics as "heading 1". Here is the code to update the TOC as well as the code at formats the headings:
Sub Update_TOC()

Selection.GoTo What:=wdGoToBookmark, Name:="Table_Of_Contents"
Selection.Find.ClearFormatting

Answer:Update table of Contents Macro - MS Word 2000

Hello...

I've created an automatic table of contents in Microsoft Word 2007. So far so good.

Once the table was created, I renamed all of the content lines to make them shorter and catchier, especially as some of the headings were actually paragraphs.

I have now added a little section right in the middle of my document. I'd like for this to show up in my table of contents.

When I ask it to update the numbers only, it doesn't add in the new section into the contents list.

When I ask it to update the whole table, it changes all my lines back to the originals.

Honestly, all I want to do is add a new section. Can I insert / link it manually? Can I automatically update without changing all the line names? Any other magical and/or mystical methods to do this?

#despair

Many thanks in advance :)

Hi everyone,

and thanks for reading. I have a problem with my table of contents for my thesis and was wondering whether you could help. I'm using Windows 7 64bit and Word 2007.

My table of contents is on the whole working quite well, but I've noticed that for some entries (5.5.4 and 6.2) in the example shown here, the trailing dots have disappeared. This problem seems confined to header entries whose length overlaps where the page number usually sits.

Is this just a Word 2007 bug or is there something I could do to fix this? Obviously, I could manually add the dots and print, but that's not really a workable solution, since I'd like to publish this electronically as well as in paper form.

Thanks again, and I'd appreciate any comments / workarounds you may have.

Jack, 163, 17
Mike, 168, 0
Dot, 167, 24

Dot, 167

I can't use macros or VBA. It has to be formula driven. I can use a helper column or two. The starting table will change depending on who charged hours where. I've been trying to use IF and OFFSET and ROWS to do it, and it works until there's 2 consecutive rows that have OT hours.

Just to clarify, I just need to know how to get column A listed properly elsewhere in the spreadsheet - I can derive Column B using vlookup.

I need to read and update a table that has thousands of records in it with multiple record types that need to be grouped. It's an EDI style format. The problem is I can't find a unique value to tie all of the record types together - so I'm thinking I'll just create a unique value for each group of records. Below is an example of the records. I'd like to create a unique ID for each group of Rec_Type 10-95. I was thinking I'd need to create some VBA code that reads the table and just updates a new field that stores a group ID. Here's the english version
Code:
Pseaudo Code:
Set counter to 1
Read Table
if rec_type >=10 and rec_type <95 then
Group = Counter
Otherwise If rec_type = 95 Then
Group = Counter
Counter = Counter +1
Else Group = 0

Update Group field on record

Loop - read next record
While I understand how to create modules and how to create update queries, I'm a little fuzzy on how to create the VBA to read through a table and evaluate each record for updating an attribute in that record. Thanks in advance for your help.
Code:
ID Rec_Type AllText

I was recently given a word table that spanned over 4 pages, when printing it out the bottom border of the table did not print out. Is there any way I can separate this one table into smaller tables that fit into one page each. I am currently using word 97.

Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: Continuous Word table

What I would do before anything else is select the table (Table-Select table), the Table-Convert table to text.

Go from there.

Using tables as a format layout is a bad idea unless you really need the side-by-side columns, in which case EACH paragraph should be a new table row (don't hit return to create a new paragraph, hit tab to create a new row). You might be able to accomplish this by keeping all that text selected and doing a Table-Convert text to table using paragraph returns as the delimiter.

Hi,
This is probably simple but I can't solve it!
I use a Word document that is a table of 6 colums and about 80 rows. The content of columns 1-4 rarely needs to be changed but I need to add lengthy narrative in colums 5 and 6.
The problem is that when I tab down to add the narrative the rows do not expand so the narrative does not appear. How do I get the rows to expand as I tab down? I don't want to have to drag the line down each time as this messes up the appearance of the rest of the 16 page doc.

While I'm here, how do I get the doc to open in 'landscape' automatically each time I open it?

I have a table with fixed text in to which I want to put variable text. My problem is moving reliably from one row to the next so the variable text ends up in the right place.

The MoveDown will move down only a line of text if a cell has multiple lines. If you select the cell before doing the move down, this mostly moves you to the next row, but still gets confused on rows that split across pages.

I figured that if you find the current row, you could just add 1 to it and then select the next row.

You can get the current row using

Selection.Information(wdStartOfRangeRowNumber)

and you could select the row with

ActiveDocument.Tables(x).Rows(local_row +1).Select

but how do I know which table I'm in (or alternatively what do I do to get the Rows.Select to operate on the current table)?

Thanks,

If I move a table row in Word 2007, it seems to split the table at the point it is inserted. The row above gets the table bottom formatting, the row I insert gets both table top and table bottom, and the next row gets table top. If I hover the mouse at the start of the inserted row it offers me the table start marker, as does hovering over the next row. This happens whether I drag and drop or cut and paste.

What&#8217;s going on, and how can I insert the row as part of the existing table, or at least re-merge the tables back to one again? I never had this problem with 2003.

Hello,

I am having two problems and they may, or may not, be related.

I received an e-mail newsletter and copied it into Word intending to edit and amend it. The Word copy seems to be formatted as a table, it has a border around each page of text. Going to the menu and selecting Table the option to convert "table into text" is grayed out.

While it visually appears to be a table according to Word, it is not. I have tried copying the newsletter into WordPerfect and saving it as RTF and TXT but when Word opens the file the lines which are indicative of the table are back. This totally confuses me so any help would certainly be appreciated

The second strange behavior with in Word involves the program's insistence on jumping to a specific page. As an example, if I page down to page 5, in just an instant Word will decide that I really want to be on page 1 or page 17. I am unable to find any place in the command structure where I can tell Word to cool it. If you know where I can look to find the source of this behavior I'd appreciate your sharing.

Thank you

Okay, so I thought that Word 2003 had pretty bad controls for table formatting. Well, Microsoft managed to make them worse with Word 2007. It's hard to believe, I know.

At any rate, in Word 2003, it was possible to select a table-based pre-defined/custom style from the styles list/window. In Word 2007 I don't see any table-based styles at all! However, I know that they're still there for two reasons:
I'm using the imported template that I made with Word 2003.
I could see my custom table-based styles using the toolbar-based styles list, which becomes viewable using the Clasic Toolbars and Menus plugin.

Does anyone know how I can get at my pre-defined table-based styles?

Not sure about the formatting. However when you copy the table in Word, you then click on the first cell in excel where you want the data to go.

You then Select Paste Special and select Text. That will bring it into the cells correctly.

If you just use paste it brings the table borders etc across as well.

Not sure that helps, as I don't know of a way of getting the format across as well.

I have a Word document, table and column formatting, which is an index of movies, and I want to insert a link in each title, directly to the movie file.

This can be done?

Then, the REAL question - I have 6,000 items, about 50 per 'cell', for each 50 movie files in each folder. I need a script to do this - at least for each 'target' folder of items, at one time...

Feedback?

Here&#8217;s a picture of my issue. I know Word and tables pretty well but this always stumps me: why am I losing so much space in the cells? As you can see there&#8217;s a large amount of space that&#8217;s unavailable on the right side of each cell. For example, if I try to add a letter to the first line of the rh cell it will show at the start of the second line. Not all cells in my tables do this but I cannot figure out the setting that affects it.

Thanks in advance.

Answer:Solved: Microsoft Word 2010 table problem

I really do not like Word 2010 but that is not your issue. Tables always have hidden properties and it seems that your margins needs to be adjusted. I found this page which can possibly give you insight but I am sorry I do not have a direct answer.

I'm hoping someone can help me please. I have a Word document that contains a 10 cell table. Each cell has a border and I'd like to put a bold frame around the table while still keeping the individual cell borders in place. Every time I try to place a bold frame around the table, all individual cell borders are removed leaving just the bold outer frame visible. How can I retain all the inner individual borders as well?
Thanks in advance
 

Answer:Solved: Word 2007 - Table with borders needs a frame.

Hi coineeze,
Highlight your table and go to the borders dropdown box. Select borders and shading. That will bring up a picture of your borders with options. Change the width of the line to however big you want it for the bold frame. Then click just the outside borders in the preview. You'll see those turn bold and the other stay the same. Hope that helps.

Can anyone give me some advice on how to correct the lines in a table I'm working on. In some instances (such as above the words 'Cadillac Oil Company' in the lower portion of the table) there is an unintended line which I cannot remove. There are also lines (such as right below that) where the cell border seems to be heavier or the sum of two lines. The upper cell border for the logo to the left also has this behavior. I've tried various things like removing all the borders and then trying to put them back but have not yet hit on the solution. Thanks
 

Answer:Solved: Extra lines in a Word 2010 table

Select the CADILLAC OIL COMPANY line and press right mouse button and select no borders.
Do the same with ISO 9001:2008 and the cells borders are gone.

I would like to evenly arrange some words in a cell or table. There is an odd number of words so I can't use the normal grid; using 'tab' is still messy and using the 'space' bar is not the best way of doing it. I would like to know how I can arrange these neatly. If anyone can help I'd greatly appreciate it. Please see the attached pdf file.

Stephen.

Hi folks - I have been sent an application form in Word which when printed out tends to lose some text in the pre-set fields. I wanted to increase the row heights to see if I could get all the text printing out, but the pre-set fields (i.e. fields with information and headings supplied as part of the form) cannot be selected for editing - all options are greyed out. Even "Edit/Select All" appears to be disabled.

Is this form locked in some way so it can't be edited? I did a very preliminary google search which suggests that documents can be locked in this way, and I can see the advantages for form submissions by email - but is there a way to solve the printing problem so I can get a hard copy printed out without missing text?

Many thanks for any help

Hi everyone!
I've just started using Word 2007 after using Word 2003 for years. After establishing how 2007 is put together, it's not difficult to understand. However, I have one problem: Tables! I can "insert" a table into my Word document with the correct number of rows and columns. I can add columns or rows - no problem. However, I find that when I try and type anything in the cells, the entire row suddenly shades itself to blue, and this blue colour gets darker and darker with every keystroke, to the point where it's so dark, I can't read my typing! This is driving me up the wall! Does anyone have any idea what I can do to fix this? I notice that this blue shading extends the length of the row and a bit further after the end of the row - almost like the row is being "selected". Please help me!
 

Answer:Solved: Ms word 2007 - typing in a table cell

Hi PMK, welcome to TSG.

This is a known bug in Word 2007 and the only solution I've seen that's been successful is to remove items one by one from your Quick Access Toolbar and see which one fixes the problem. Can you try that and let us know if there is any difference when you remove buttons?

Does anyone know if Excel 2007 will generate a table of contents listing each sheet in the workbook? Like how Word can create a table of contents for a document?

A Google search reveals how to manually create a clickable list of tabs, but I have a big workbook and I'm hoping to avoid that.

Thanks,
Lisa

I have to instances of page numbering in all my headers. I used a website(http://www.computing.net/answers/office/different-numbering-on-same-page/9413.html) to help me do this. Now my problem is that my TOC's page numbers are now formatting as 1, 2, 3 instead of using the chapter number and page number of the chapter (ie 1-1, 2-1, 2-2, 2-3, 3-1, 3-2, 4-1). Could you please tell me how to make my TOC's page numbers use the chapter number and page of the chapter number instead of the page number it is located on in the entire document?

HiI would like to update the font of text within Table of contents of a word document. If I right click select and change font then it will change, but next time I ?update entire table? it will clear and go back to a different font style, which is less than ideal.I?m not sure if this has something to do with the way the table was set up initially?Any ideas on how to resolve?Thanks

Answer:Updating font of Table of contents

open the document then highlight the text you want to change the font of. Change to the one you want and then go to file save as and give this file a new name. Close word then restart and open the new named file this should be as you saved it.

Hello everyone,

I need a table of contents that will form acorrdind to specific text and show page numbers.

Looked all over internet, but there is only a posibility to make sheet table of contents and that is not the right solution for me.

I was thinking of a macto that would find specific text and copy it to the begginig of the sheet and hyperlink it, but have no idea how to put page numbers

So that is what i have so far:

Code:

Sub_TOC()
Sheets("Sheet2").Select
Cells.Find(What:="PRESENTATION", After:=ActiveCell, LookIn _
:=xlFormulas, LookAt:=xlPart, SearchOrder:=xlByRows, SearchDirection:= _
xlNext, MatchCase:=False, SearchFormat:=False).Activate
Range("B78:D78").Select
Selection.Copy
Range("B35:E35").Select
ActiveSheet.Paste

ActiveSheet.Hyperlinks.Add Anchor:=Selection, Address:="", SubAddress:= _
"Sheet2!B78", TextToDisplay:="PRESENTATION"
End sub


Any solution to do this would be appreciated
