Microsoft Word/strange-looking table of contents
Please to meet you again.
I use Word 2007 and Windows 7.
I'm having a very difficult time creating a Table of Contents when the styles of the items are a mix of Heading styles and others such as Normal style and list paragraph style.
I have created several different scenarios where the above mix is used.The best way for you to see my problem is to show you the result, but when I tried to copy/and paste into this note, the result was a distortion.
I would like to be able to email some examples of my problem by attaching them.
What I can tell you now about the appearance of the Table of Contents is that the titles are appearing on the right side of the page and the page numbers appear on the left side, just the opposite of what the Table should look like.
These results occur ONLY when outline letters or numbers are placed in front of the items. Without the outline characters, I can mix Heading and other styles and obtain a normal-looking Table of Contents.
I look forward to your reply.
Chris you are welcome to send a copy of the table of contents, I think you can attach a document to an experts question. I probably not be able to review it until after work tomorrow (Monday).
Oh I see you might only be able to attach an image - you can send a copy to email@example.com
