I have a detailed document with subheadings - how can I get Word 2010 to autopopulate a summary page comprised of specified (preselected) sub sections of the main report?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In Microsoft Word, 2010, you can create a summary page from a document by going to the Tools menu and then selecting “Autosummarize” from the list of options. You may also paste the document into a notepad text file and then use an online automated summary service to create a text file summary. You can then import the text file into other programs as needed.

    the auto summary option no longer exists.

    "In Word 2010, this feature is no longer used. If you insert an abstract into the document, that is not AutoSummary data and will remain. However, if the document was in a summary view when it is saved, it will not be after you open it."
