    Hi all,

    I want to add a table of contents onto my report. I've managed to work out how to do it but at the moment, it's duplicating page headers.

    For example...

    Introduction
    1.1 - The current problem
    1.2 - The solution

    Introduction
    1.3 - The aims

    How can I stop it from repeating the Introduction header, even though it's on a separate page?

    The only way I can think of doing it is by adding a creating a different style - but that seems really long winded.

    Regards,

    Wozzer

    Hmm odd. I just looked into Word 2010 and can not recreate the same problem.

    Any option to modify the table?

    Can't see any obvious.

    I've edited the style "header" - then added TOC.

    The only way around it I see is to remove the duplication "Introduction" headers on each of the pages

    Well yes... Why have an introduction heading on every page?

    I suppose it's not an necessity. Just make it look a bit more professional.

    I would disagree with you there, but if you really wanted to have the header on every page, you could just make a manual contents page when you are finished, using one of the given templates. It wouldn't take that long.

    I assume your using the built in Table of Contents builder...

    Have you tried Updating Table? Or is that in 2010?

    Am using 2007 - And update table is what is causing the duplications.

    It seems reasonable that it would duplicate it as I have in fact duplicated the headers. Just wasn't sure if there was an option I could tick that removes duplicates.

    I might scrap the whole TOC anyway - It seems to be crashing Word quite often ! :banghead:
