Default Flowing different lines in a header for a TOC

I have a document containing several cases of (for example)

Table 1

Title of table 1

xxx xxx xxx xxx


Table 2

Title of table 2

yyy yyy yyy yyy

centred across the page. It's a standard table format that cannot be altered.

The requirement is for a TOC that has

Table 1: Title of table 1.........1
Table 2: Title of table 2.........3

etc.

Is there any way I can do this? I've applied a heading style to the table
titles, but I end up with a TOC that looks like

Table 1..................1
Title of table 1.........1
Table 2..................3
Title of table 2.........3

which has been rejected.

Thanks for any help,
Geoff.

If you use a line break rather than a paragraph break at the end of the
first line, the entire paragraph will be included in the TOC, and the line
break will be rendered as a space. If you need space between the label and
title, either add an extra line break (you'll get two spaces in the TOC) or
add line spacing to the table title style.

Since the text in the document should not be identical to the text in
the TOC, I think you have to use TC fields to create the entries. Look
them up in Word Help.

But the OP also wants to add a colon between the combined entries. As
far as I can tell, this makes it necessary to use TC fields.

Probably so, yes. The alternative is to include just the table title (not
the number) and add the label and numbering to the TOC style.

I see what you mean. Then it would be possible to include the colon as
part of the numbering (of the TOC style), of course.
