MS Word: How to Turn off Field Codes in Table of Contents

James asks, “In Word, the Table of Contents gives an error message: { TOCO “2-4″H Z T “HEADING 1,1″}. How do I fix this?”

I think the problem is to do with Field Codes.

If you want to turn off field codes from appearing your Table of Contents in MS Word, follow these steps:

  1. In Word, click FileOptions, Advanced, then click off Print Field Codes instead of their values. 
  2. Close and Restart Word.
