Creating an automatic table of contents in Word

If you want to create an automatic table of contents (or use the indexing feature) in a Word document that has EndNote references, you need to make sure that you remove the field codes and convert the document to plain text first, otherwise the formatting of your references will be affected.

Make sure that you have inserted all the citations that you need and that your list of references is formatted correctly, then save your document as normal.

In Word 2007
Select the EndNote menu tab, then click on the arrow to the right of the Convert Citations and Bibliography option and select Convert to Plain Text.

In Word 2003
Click on the Remove Field Codes icon in the EndNote toolbar (sixth from the right).

A new version of your document will be created. You can then use the automatic table of contents function in this new document.
