Working with Word 2013: how to create a table of contents

First you need to give your document some headings. Then highlight and apply a style to your headings from the Styles group on the HOME tab.  


Inserting a table of contents (TOC):

  1. Make sure your cursor is at the start of your document.
  2. Open up the REFERENCES tab and click on the drop down arrow in Table of Contents.
  3. Select a style or go to Custom Table of Contents for more options.

Editing the table of contents:

Click anywhere in your table of contents; your TOC will appear with a border around it. There will also be an options tab at the top:

  • Click on the down arrow in Table of Contents. This will allow you to change the style or delete the TOC altogether.
  • Click on Update Table to automatically update your TOC with content that has been added to your work after the insertion of the table of contents.
