Word table of contents not updating

30 Apr

Right-click in the index or table of contents, choose Edit Index or Table of Contents, click Type tab, and then clear the Protected against manual changes check box.But here’s the great part of using this method: you can proceed to edit your document — add or remove headings, add text, change fonts and styles, etc.— and when you’re done, just head back to the References tab and click the “Update Table” button (shown with the red arrow in the screenshot below).In the drop-down list that appears, select “Heading 1” to define your selected text as the first primary heading.Note that if your Word window is wide enough, you may see the style options listed directly in the toolbar instead of the “Styles” button.

For example, you may wish to insert a new blank page at the beginning of your document (Insert Blank Page from the Word toolbar).

Once there, click the References tab in the toolbar.

At the far left of the References tab you’ll see a button labeled Table of Contents.

Click it to reveal a drop-down list of the various ways that Word can format your table for you.
