I'm having no problems with Tables of Contents. I have created one for my document. The manual has a separate chart that lists the current pages, revision number and date of revision.

Ah yes. In the Navy we called that a LOEP (List of Effective Pages). As far as I know, unfortunately there certainly isn't any built-in or easy way for Word to accomplish that. Assuming that your page numbers, REV numbers, and Dates were in the headers (and this would mean you may be starting a new section at each time the page REV is changed then you might be able to create a macro that would build the table. That would be a relatively complex process and I don't know if it would be worth your time or the expense.

 

Sorry I couldn't answer your question with something more helpful.

I was afraid that that would be the answer. Thanks for you help anyway. Are those pilot wings on your uniform? I flew F-4s and F-16s. Now in corporate aviation. Check 6.

Colonel Gilson,

 

No sir. The upper pin is the Submarine Warfare insignia and the lower pin is the Surface Warfare insignia. I am delinquent in updating the photograph. I retired myself a little over three years ago. I was never very photogenic so I typically avoid the camera. Therefore the picture has remained unchanged.

 

Thank you very much for your long and distinguished service to the United States.

Colonel,

 

I guess I am old school. My old CO still ribs me for calling him Captain instead of Joe so with you its still Colonel. Anyone that can learn to fly a fighter jet can learn how to use new software. The project is in good hands. Thanks for offering me the opportunity to assist you.
