At some point while creating a document in Word 2010, the formulas for TOC and SUMs began showing as formulas, NOT the actual Table of Contents or number of the sum. I think I hit a combination of keys that switched to this view and I cannot get it back to normal. If I can't get to the Table of Contents, I cannot make necessary changes. How do I go back so I can work in correct view? The only place they show up as correct is when I want to print, then the actual content shows but I cannot change it in print view.

Pressing alt + F9 will toggle between showing the formula, and showing their result.
