Word - updating contents

can anyonehelp with a word issue?

I am using a template document someone has produced, the contents table is too large (font is too large) so i reduce it, and it works fine -but when i make changes in the doc and then select: Contents>Update Field>Update entire contents it changes it back.

any advice?

try adjusting it then saving it under a different name as a template.

having altered it to how you want it - select it all the 'control -C' to copy it then open a new page [left hand top button] then 'control V' to paste it. Then save as template - now that you know how to do it - then see if that does it. If still no joy once copied to the clipboard open notepad - start - accessories - notepad. Then control V then save it as an ordinary notepad doc. Then open word and open it. If this is now still as you want it save it as a template.
