Word 2003 Table of Contents Will Not Work RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a Word 2003 document that, until today, displayed the table of contents that I built with the automatic builder just fine.  Today, all I see is the merge code information.  I deleted that and tried to insert a new table of contents.  Same thing, just the merge code information, even after I do an update on the entire table.  Next I tried copying the entire document into a new document.  That did not work.  Then I tried saving the document as an .rtf file.  That did not work.

    What else can I try to get my table of documents back?

    Thank you.

  • I think you accidentally turned on the display of field codes. Try pressing Alt+F9. This toggles the display of field codes.
