Hi,

Ok, I have a TOC created and the page numbers update automatically depending where the various headings are placed. My question now is this:

Is there a way to alter the default page numbering and have that custom page numbering be reflected in the TOC?

For example:


Here is an example of how the TOC is currently laid out:

ARTICLE I FUNDING.................................................3
Section 1.1 AoP........................................................3

The problem here is that these items are actually on page 2. In effect, the table of contents is page 0 with normal numbering commencing thereafter (1, 2, 3 etc.)


Thanks for all your help!

In page setup; (File > Page setup) in the layout tab, there should be an option to make first page different. Does this fix the problem?

Hi,

Alas it did not work but I did find a solution. I went to Format->Page Numbers.

In there I was able to make the document start at page 0. This solved the problem as the TOC was only one page long.

Thank you very much for you assistance!
