(Microsoft Word is the most popular word processing software in the world.) This tip (8621) applies to Microsoft Word 2007, 2010, and 2013.You can find a version of this tip for the older menu interface of Word here: Updating an Entire TOC from a Macro.You can update a TOC using a macro by utilizing the Tables Of Contents collection.Each item in the collection represents a single TOC in the document.I see that sometimes when I press it, it automatically changes the TOC without asking what I want it to do. It's just automatically updating the entire TOC, and thus removing quite a bit of manual work I had to do on this long TOC.I added a header and thus increased the size of the header. If headings have been removed or added, Word may not give you choice; instead, it updates the whole TOC by default.It will be inserted into a content control, like the built-in tables of contents.
Thankfully, there’s a much easier way to handle a table of contents if you’re using Microsoft Word 2016 for Mac.But for now it seem the only option I have is to update the whole thing and then manually enter in all the information again.You should not be inputting anything manually into a Table of Contents.Therefore, the first step to automatically generating a table of contents is to make sure that your document has the appropriate styles applied.To start off, select your first chapter or heading by highlighting it in your document.
