I have received a word file where lots of text has the style Heading 1 but was later formatted to not look like the Heading 1 style. Whenever I do a refresh of the TOC it will insert the complete chapter in the TOC.

Is there a way to remove just the Heading 1 meta data and keep the formatting?

Just copy Heading 1 as a new style and apply it. Or copy it to Normal.

For those with Word 2010, this can be achieved by right-clicking on the line in question, and selecting Paragraph, then changing "Outline level" to "Body text".

You open the paragraph dialog box under the Home tab (Alt+O+P).

Next, under the Indents and Spacing tab, click the drop-down list beside Outline Level. Select Body Text, and click Okay. It worked for me.
