TOC: changing color of TOC entry and leader+page number

Hi,

I am tying to find a way to create a TOC (built from TC entries) that shows TC entry text in red but leader characters and page numbers in black, e,g,

Chapter 1 ...........................1
Chapter 2 ...........................2

I was trying to do that with TOC1 styles, but it seems that I can not apply the style to just a portion of TOC...Also tried to change the color of TC fields themselves to red, but they still show in black in the TOC...
I Word 2002 I can do it (somewhat awkwardly) by creating TOC, selecting portion of TOC entries before leader characters, and changing their color , then locking the TOC field to prevent automatic updates. But I need to do the same in Word 2000, and then I can not select just a portion of TOC - the whole TOC gets selected.

Obviously I could do it by manually creating each TOC line (without using TOC field), but I was hoping to take advantage of the TOC field that automatically "gathers" all TC fields

Any suggestions will be greatly appreciated

1. Include all page Numbers in TOC including multiple TOC pages.

2. Create a TOC with paragraph numbers below the TOC entry?

Hello all

I am trying to create a TOC which has headings referring to the paragraph
numbers of the section below. Here's an example:

Header 1

1.1 Paragraph Text

1.2 Paragraph Text

1.3 Paragraph Text

Header 2

1.4 Paragraph Text

1.5 Paragraph Text

etc etc

I'd like the TOC to display as follows:

Header 1.....Paragraph 1.1.....Page 1
Header 2.....Paragraph 1.4.....Page 2
etc etc

Is this possible? I've been looking at the field codes for TOCs but I'm not
sure this is possible.

I'm using Word 2003.

Any help would be much appreciated :)
