While attempting to automatically insert table of contents I

This answer was rated:

While attempting to automatically insert table of contents I get the table of contents. It does not seem to matter that I have clicked on the heading styles and chosen heading 1, Calibri 16, bold and saved them to word each time chapter after chapter. It simply says there is no toc. It also often tries to insert chapter 3 even if I am on another word doc and a different book. It wants to insert several paragraphs from chapter three or none at all. Is this a computer problem, or a word table of contents problem, or perhaps I am doing something wrong? Thanks for your input.... sure hope it helps? fjh
Thanks for your Question. My name is ***** ***** I look forward to assisting you.
I want to see if it is an issue with the actual document.
Can I look at it please?
- Click the following link:
- Upload the file to that website
- Once it is uploaded, the resulting page will display a "File ID" number.
- Please, give me that "File ID Number"

Thanks Floyd,
The document did not appear to have any heading styles applied.
I highlighted Acknowledgment and applied from the Styles, Heading 1
Then right clicked on the Table of Contents and clicked update
It then displayed it. I did this also for Disclaimer.
Can you check it by downloading it here LEGEND OF KING PUDGE.doc

Relist: Inaccurate answer.
What he said made sense but when I repeated what he suggested it did not work. Also the link he sent in which he supposedly highlighted two of the headings did not display so I could verify he had achieved this.
Hi, just tell me and I can repost the link.
And just tell me please if you have troubles :)
