MS Word has a perennial feature that allows you to build a Table of Contents based on words and phrases you select rather than traditional Headings. To access this feature you highlight the word or phrase you want to appear in your TOC. Then you press [Alt]+[Shift]+[o] and a 'Mark Table of Contents Entry' window appears.

I understand the purpose of the Entry and Level fields, but not the 'Table Identifier' field. Can someone please enlighten me? By default the Table Identifier field is set to 'C'. Up to now I have left it alone.

Google is our friend.

I found the following at

Note also that a TC field can have a “table identifier.” If you want certain entries to appear in a specific TOC and others in a different one, you can create TC fields with different identifiers; these entries will then appear only in the table of contents whose TOC field has a matching identifier. For more on TC fields, see Word’s Help topic “Field codes: TC (Table of Contents Entry) field.”

Oh, okay. Thanks again, DerbyDad03. I'll check out the reference you cited. However, since I'll be dealing with only a single TOC, I probably won't use the 'Table Identifier' feature. But it's always nice to know.
