You can create a Table of Contents by applying heading styles. Like Heading 1, Heading 2 etc. to the text to include in the Table of Contents. Word searches for those headings and then inserts the Table of Contents into your document. When you create the Table of Contents this way you can automatically update it if you make changes in your document.

Do the following to create a Table of Contents

Step 1

First of all apply a "Heading Style" to the text that you want to be included in the Table of Contents. Then later you can use these headings to update your Table of Contents.
