Creating the table of contents

The Word® files of the WMF provided by WHO already contain the information necessary for the generation of a table of contents. The most important thing is to ensure that in all sections the titles and subtitles to be included in the table of contents have styles that have been consistently applied, e.g. Heading 1 style for main section title, Heading 2 style for subsection title etc. The same styles should be applied carefully for all additional local chapters, sections and monographs. Once chapters are combined in a master file, these chapters will take on definitions from the master document and can be made uniform, as long as they were created with the same style name. See Box 6.3 and 6.4. for step-by-step instructions on creating a table of contents.
