Why my TOC only displays the content up to a certain pge? RRS feed

  • Question

  • TOC in Word was working ok and as my document continues to grow , the TOC is not showing the content (the headers etc..)  from page 30 on. I have not touched any formattingor anything as I am just an intermediate user of Word.

    Any help is appreciated. Thanks

  • Try using Ctrl-A, F9 to force all fields to update. If your TOC doesn't pick up the new entries, there are two main possibilities:
    1. The omitted headings aren't formatted in the Styles used by the TOC (typically 'Heading 1', 'Heading 2', 'Heading 3'); and/or
    2: The TOC has a bookmark switch, telling it to only pickup headings in the portion of the document spanned by the bookmark and the  omitted headings aren't in that portion of the document.

  • Have you remembered to update the table of contents? If you have, and it still isn't working, make sure you have applied the built-in heading styles to all headings in your document.
