Default How to edit the TOC in Word?

I can link the TOC perfectly fine, however, I'm trying to add in a text in
the TOC after I update the field. For exmaple, currently if the TOC is
showing as:

Introduction............................1
1.1 Introduction to ABC.........1
1.2 Subscription...................2
Products.................................3
2.1 Product List....................4
2.2 Product Descriptions........5

And I'd like to change it to:

Section 1 Introduction............................1
1.1 Introduction to ABC....1
1.2 Subscription..............2
Section 2 Products.................................3
2.1 Product List....................4
2.2 Product Descriptions........5

And I can't figure out how to enter those text "Section 1", "Section
2",.....because those text does not exist in the actual manual.

Will someone please advise? Thank you so much.

Default How to edit the TOC in Word?

The only way to edit a TOC so that it will stick is to do it in an unlinked
TOC. After editing is complete (so that pagination will not change),
Ctrl+Shift+F9 to unlink the TOC, and you can do anything you want to with
it. Alternatively, you could use TC fields to generate your TOC 1 entries.

The best solution, however, is to apply Section # numbering to the TOC 1
styles. See http://sbarnhill.mvps.org/WordFAQs/TOCTips.htm for more.
