ecently a few people have asked me to fix their auto-generated table of contents (TOC) in Word.
Somehow theyve ended up with a picture in there and they dont know how or why, and it keeps
coming back when they regenerate the TOC.

This ones easy to fixonce you know why it occurs.

The default behavior of Word is to use Heading styles to create the TOC and the Caption style to
create lists of figures and tables. The paragraph the picture is in has a Heading or Caption style
applied to it.

Find the picture in the body of the document.

Replace the Heading or Caption style with a standard paragraph style.

Regenerate the TOC/list of figures/list of tables and the picture should be gone forever!

I wasnt sure what it did, so I turned it off, re-inserted the TOC and voila! all the odd entries in the
TOC disappeared and it was back to how it should be. My colleague was very happy.

The weird thing is that the other document, where the TOC worked fine, also had this setting
turned on, but it wasnt reporting these odd entries. I left the other document set as it was (If it
aint broke, dont fix it!). I still dont really know what that setting does and why it caused the TOC
to misbehave in one doc where it was turned on, but not another that used the same template.

1. Locate the diagram in the body of the document.
2. Select the diagram.
3. Look at the style that is assigned to the document. If it is Heading x, where x is 1, 2, etc.,
then continue reading to fix this. (If it is not Heading x, then this might not help you.)
4. Change the style to something other than Heading x.
5. Go back to your table of contents, and press F9 to rebuild the entire table.

The diagram should now be removed.
