I've written a book of about 300 pages, and I'd like to generate a TOC (table of contents) for it. All the information I can find on the web tells me how to do this based on the built-in paragraph style names Heading1, Heading2, etc. These names are meaningless for my document, however, so I wrote it using paragraph names that makes sense for what I'm doing, e.g., "Unnumbered Chapter", "Chapter", "Guideline", etc. I've also assigned Outline levels to these styles so that they are organized correctly in the Navigation Pane.
I'd assumed that to generate a TOC, all I'd have to do would be to tell Word which paragraph styles to include, and it would use the outline levels I'd already assigned to structure the TOC. But at this point, I can't even figure out how to tell Word which paragraph styles correspond to text that should be in the TOC.
