To create a table of content in word 2007 you will need to:
1) Tell the program where your headings are:
– Click on the first heading and then click on Heading 1 (see the top)
2) Do this with the rest of your headings (keep using the button “Heading 1“). When you are done, click on top of the document (where you want to place your table of contents).
3) Then click on “References”. And now choose one of the layouts (the first one is good).
