Default Updated TOC Does Not Save

I am running Word 2000 and have a Table of Contents (TOC) that I update both
by right-clicking and selecting "Update field" and have also set "Update
fields" in Tools, Options. The table updates correctly but when I close and
reopen the document, the page numbers are incorrect and are the same as they
were before I updated the TOC (both by right clicking and printing). Any
ideas on how I get the updated TOC to save?

Thanks,
Wendy

Sorry for being flip about your problem. It helps, though, if you tell us a
bit about what you have tried and what results you are seeing, as well as
the version of Word.

Is this happening in just one document or all your documents? What happens
to other changes you make to the document?

Default Updated TOC Does Not Save

Fair enough about the ctrl-S however, I did state in my original post that I
am running Word 2000. Now on to more details.

I created Policy.doc based normal.dot and am copying Policy.doc and
inserting some text and saving the file with a different name. I have about
20 copies (all with different names) of the original Policy.doc. If I change
the pagination or the file name of Policy1.doc, Policy2.doc Policy3.doc etc.,
the page numbers in the header update immediately and the filename field in
the footer updates once I've done a print preview. These changes (page# and
filename field) as well as any edits to the text or heading text are saved
and remain saved once the document is saved and closed then reopened. Any
changes to any of the text formatted as Heading 1 or 2 are saved once the
entire TOC is updated then the doc is saved, closed and reopened.

However, if I updated the page numbers in the TOC, then save, close and
reopen the doc, I see that the page numbers in the TOC have reverted to what
they were before I updated them (side note: the page numbers that the TOC
seems to be reverting to are exactly the same as the page numbers in the TOC
of the original Policy.doc that I copied and renamed).

I have tried deleting the original TOC in the copied file and re-inserting
another TOC and the updated page numbers still do not "stick". The original
and re-inserted TOC end up with the same field code and is as follows: {TOC
\O "2-2" \H \Z \T "HEADING 1,1,HEADING 2,2"}.

I've also tried updating the TOC then save, close and reopen on another
computer and that didn't work either.

I'm stumped because this problem has never happened with any of the other
hundreds of documents I've copied, then saved as a differend file.

Thanks,
Wendy

Default Updated TOC Does Not Save

If you are making manual changes to your TOC rather than simply updating the
field, you can get the behavior you are observing. What you see on the
screen (and change with manual changes) is a field display. When the field
updates, it reverts to its original material with any changes made in the
document that are reflected automatically by the field in the document.

I'm not making manual changes to the TOC, I was just including the field code
in my post for more information. All I am doing is right clicking on the TOC
and selection "Update Entire Table".

Thanks for the suggestion but Ctrl-S didn't work. Neither does
File,Save.

I am running Word 2000 and have a Table of Contents (TOC) that I
update
both
by right-clicking and selecting "Update field" and have also set
"Update
fields" in Tools, Options. The table updates correctly but when
I
close
and
reopen the document, the page numbers are incorrect and are the
same
as
they
were before I updated the TOC (both by right clicking and
printing).
Any
ideas on how I get the updated TOC to save?

Thanks,
Wendy
