Hello,



I have an annoying Word problem and have spent too much time trying to solve it!



I have inserted a new TOC in a Word document. It\'s meant to display the contents at header level 1 only. The title \"Table of Contents\" is not defined as header level 1, but is still displayed as the first item in the table of contents.



Obviously I don\'t want the first item in the table of contents to be the table of contents! Can anyone tell me how to prevent this? Word help doesn\'t really help.



Thanks in advance,



Joanne



PS. I\'ve just managed to correct it with a workaround - by changing the text style again. However, this doesn\'t exactly match the original document. If anyone can tell me the correct way to do this for the future, I\'d be most grateful!

You have to define the item \"Table of contents\" something else rather than \"Heading 1\". The TOC includes - by default - all paragraphs with style Heading 1, 2 and 3. (You can change this setting to include more Heading levels or other styles, such as Subheadings, etc.)

You have to change the style of the \"Table of contents\" title - something neutral, even \"Normal\" is OK.

Now, you can manually change the style of the the title \"Table of contents\" to look like what you have in your original document. Manually, I mean changing the font, paragraph spacing, etc., but still leaving the paragraph style unchanged.



I hope I could help.
