As noted in an earlier posting, if you format each of your headings with a Format Style (Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3) MS Word can create a Table of Contents for you.
Problem is that the Level 3 APA heading causes a problem so that it won't register in the Table of Contents. The problem is that the heading is on the same line as the regular text. See the example below:
Level 3 Example:
Generation Z. This generation is a unique generation because they will not have lived in a time when the World Wide Web didn't exist.
There are two ways to beat this problem:
- Don't worry about it. Be happy with only having levels 1 and 2 in your Table of Contents - Be Done With It.
- Insert the lines for the Level 3 headings into the Word-Generated Table of Contents and place the Level 3 heading and page number into it manually.
If you select option 2, I have created a 4-minute video that explains the process.
ALERT: If you select option 2, you don't use Heading 3 in your formatting. You just change it to Normal and then bold your heading manually.
