Thanks for the answers.  I think my mind is becoming blurry that I can't see
the easy answers and think they all have to be much more complex than they
are.

I have a second issue.

the text I want in the table of contents is left justified and the page
number is right justified.  I use the Reference Page
<$elementonly>(tab)....<$pagenum>.  When the text is just long enough that
it "runs into" the page number the page number wraps to the next line
instead of the text "breaking" and then wrapping.  Here's an example of what
I mean:

ILS or ILS/RADAR RWY 26L.......177
SID(VECTOR) NON JET RICHMOND.
178
SID(VECTOR) VANCOUVER......179
NOISE ABATEMENT (pg 1)........180

Is there a way to detect the conflict and "break" the text for page 178 so
that it reads like this:

ILS or ILS/RADAR RWY 26L.......177
SID(VECTOR) NON JET
   RICHMOND............................178
SID(VECTOR) VANCOUVER......179
NOISE ABATEMENT (pg 1)........180

Subject: Table of Contents Question


I have a table of contents that is dynamically generated from the contents
of a book (I do this for 12 different books).  At times the length of the
text in the element I have to use to create the entries in the table of
contents is too long and it wraps to a second line.

Is there a way to elegantly handle this situation?

What I would like to be able to do is set up a tab so that when the text
wraps there is a little bit of an indent to show that the new line is still
part of the original element.

Thanks in advance,
st
