Word 2010 Creating a Table of Contents

Did you know...

You can create a Table of Contents with just two clicks of the mouse if you set your document up right?

The first thing you need to do is make all heading styles.  Use Heading 1, Heading 2, Heading 3, etc.

Styles are found on your Home Ribbon...

To apply a style select the heading and click on the desired level of heading such as Heading 1, Heading 2, etc.
Once all Headings have a Heading style applied to them, you are ready to create your table of contents.  Anything you have put a Heading style on will automatically appear in the Table of Contents.
