As title - I customized the Headings style for a document from 'x' to 'x.x.x.x.x' and used the same. Even after updating my TOC is showing sub headings only upto 'x.x.x' for any section. How do I get that updated till 'x.x.x.x.x'. Please help me. Thanks.

This shows sections till 'x.x.x.x.x'

This shows the corresponding sections names not getting updated in TOC.

Probably too late to help you, but might be useful to someone else:

  1. Select all.
  2. Right-click on any selected text and click Toggle Field Codes. Your ToC should now look something like { TOC \o "1-3" \h \z \u }.
  3. Change the upper limit from 3 to whatever maximum depth you need, such as 9.
  4. Select all, right-click and select Toggle Field Codes again.
  5. Update the ToC to pick up the change.
