    Hi!
    this is the main problem. i have formated all the document manually, highlighting the head lines and applying font Arail 12 bold. But forget to apply built in heading style. Now when i use autoformat my whole formating collapses. And that s why i even cant use autoformat.Is there anyway to get out of it.
    Thanking you in advance
    Ay

    Sorry I didn't see this sooner.


    Suppose all "level 2" headlines are 12-point Bold.


    Ctrl+H
    Hit MORE.
    Hit Format, Font, and choose the formatting. (don't type anything in the box)


    In Replace with box, hit Format, Style, and choose Heading 2.


    Do the same for your other levels, making sure to use Heading 1 and any other levels.

    Hi everybody,


    I am trying to insert either an index or a table of contents in my word file but i am getting these error messages.


    Error! No index entries found.


    Error! No table of contents entries found.


    I have formatted the headings using one of th built-in styles - heading 2. I had underlined the headings, which is not a part of the style and on getting the errors i removed the underline to no avail.


    can anyone make out why ?

    hi!
    sometimes the above mentioned technique doesnt work. Moreover, when i past format having heading style to other text, format doesnt apply e.g:
    Apple (Heading Style 1)


    Bana(No style)


    i copy format from Apple and try to apply to bana but it deosntwork.


    i want to master inserting table of index. how can i do that.


    Thanks

    I am wondering if anyone would be interested helping me creating an Index within the Template and I am trying to minimize my merge documents from 191 pages to 95/96 pages.
    PLEASE I can call you or you can call me to walk through the steps.
    I would sincerely appreciate your help.
    Thanks.
