TOC [switches]

Builds a table of contents. The TOC field collects entries for a table of contents using heading levels, specified styles, or entries specified by TC (Table of Contents Entry) fields. Microsoft Word inserts the TOC field when you use the Index and Tables command (Insert menu, Reference submenu).


switches 
\a Identifier Lists items captioned with the Caption command (Insert menu, Reference submenu) but omits caption labels and numbers
The identifier corresponds to the caption label
For example, although a caption on page 12 is "Figure 8: Mercury", the field { TOC \a figures } displays entries as "Mercury............12"
Use the \c switch to build a table of captions with labels and numbers.
\b BookmarkName Collects entries only from the portion of the document marked by the specified bookmark
\c "SEQIdentifier" Lists figures, tables, charts, or other items that are numbered by a SEQ (Sequence) field
Word uses SEQ fields to number items captioned with the Caption command (Insert menu, Reference submenu)
SEQIdentifier, which corresponds to the caption label, must match the identifier in the SEQ field
For example, { TOC \c tables } lists all numbered tables
\f EntryIdentifier Builds a table from TC fields
If EntryIdentifier is specified, the table is built only from TC fields with the same identifier (typically a letter)
For example, { TOC \f t } builds a table of contents from TC fields such as { TC "Entry Text" \f t }
\h Hyperlinks Inserts TOC entries as hyperlinks
\l Levels Builds a table of contents from TC fields that assign entries to one of the specified levels
For example, { TOC \l 1-4 } builds a table of contents from TC fields that assign entries to levels 1-4 in the table of contents
TC fields that assign entries to lower levels are skipped
\n Levels Omits page numbers from the table of contents
Page numbers are omitted from all levels unless a range of entry levels is specified
For example, { TOC \n 3-4 } omits page numbers from levels 3 and 4
Delete this switch to include page numbers
\o "Headings" Builds a table of contents from paragraphs formatted with built-in heading styles
For example, { TOC \o "1-3" } lists only headings formatted with the styles Heading 1 through Heading 3
If no heading range is specified, all heading levels used in the document are listed
Enclose the range numbers in quotation marks
\p "Separators" Specifies the characters that separate an entry and its page number
For example, the field { TOC \p "-" }, with an em dash, displays a result such as "Selecting Text-53." The default is a tab with leader dots
You can use up to five characters, which must be enclosed in quotation marks
\s Identifier Includes a number such as a chapter number before the page number
The chapter or other item must be numbered with a SEQ field
Identifier must match the identifier in the SEQ field
For example, if you insert { SEQ chapter } before each chapter heading, { TOC \o "1-3" \s chapter } displays page numbers as 2-14, where "2" is the chapter number
\d "Separator" When used with the \s switch, specifies the number of characters that separate the sequence numbers and page numbers
Enclose the characters in quotation marks
Word uses a hyphen (-) if no \d switch is specified
In the table of contents generated by { TOC \o "1-3" \s chapter \d ":" }, a colon (:) separates chapter numbers and page numbers - for example, "2:14."
\t "Style,Level, Style,Level,..." Builds a table of contents from paragraphs formatted with styles other than the built-in heading styles
For example, { TOC \t "chaptertitle,1, chapterhead,2" } builds a table of contents from paragraphs formatted with the styles "chaptertitle" and "chapterhead." The number after each style name indicates the table of contents entry level that corresponds to that style
You can use both the \o switch and the \t switch to build a table of contents from built-in heading styles and other styles.
\u Builds a table of contents by using the applied paragraph outline level
\w Preserves tab entries within table entries
\x Preserves newline characters within table entries
\z Hides tab leader and page numbers in Web layout view

Remarks

* If the table of contents created by the TOC field affects the pagination of the document, you may have to update the field again to reflect the correct page numbers.
