ToC, ToC Styles, and ToC Tabs


B

Bill Gruener

Environment: Windows XP Professional V 2002 SP 3; Word 2007 SP2 MSO

I converted a document from Word 2003 to Word 2007. I am working with the
document in Word 2007.
The ToC has three levels H1, H2, and H3.
In the ToC, the three levels are indented as such:

1.0 Heading 1................................P#
1.1 Heading 2..........................P#
1.1.1 Heading 3.................P#

After converting the document to Word 2007, I generated the ToC. Here's the
result:

1.0 Heading 1................................P#
1.1 Heading 2..........................P#
1.1.1 Heading 3.................P#

What happened?

I assume that the problem may be associated with the tab stops assigned to
the style TOC 3. I manipulated the tab stops by opening the Tabs dialog box
(Alt+O+T). Any changes made did not solve the problem.

The number "1.1.1" is wide enough to extend beyond the tab set for the
text of that heading, so the tab-character after the number is taking
the text to the next tab stop. Move that first tab a little to the
right.

Would you move the tab stop a little to the right in

1) the ruler,
2) Tabs dialog box, or
3) another dialog box such as the Modify Style dialog box for the TOC 3 style?

Thanks

In a ToC, "Update" is on by default, so moving it on the ruler (or the
dialog box) will cause the style to be modified (and all the 3-Head
ToC entries will show the change immediately).
