Adding a Plain Text to TOC in Word2010
I trying to a add a plain text, which is not appearing in the original text, to my existing TOC list in microsoft word. I am trying to add a word "Chapters" to my TOC. But, I cannot. I typing it inside the TOC but when I update TOC list, the word "Chapters" disappears. Is there a way to solve this problem? This word should have no page number or dots.
I have attached a sample TOC list corresponding to what I want.

Part 1: Preparing for Two TOCs
The question was how to add several TOC entries, then a text entry, followed by additional TOC entries. I would approach this solution by using unique styles and customizing the TOC function in Word. The high level approach is:
The following instructions make these assumptions:
As the instructions have a lot of graphics, it is broken into two parts.
Here I have created a new skeleton document just for these instructions.
Enter the "framework" of topics
ABSTRACTCreate Style for First TOC
Here the user creates a unique style name for the headings to appear before the manually inserted text in the middle of the published TOC.
1. Select the first text for the heading of this new style.
2. Anchor the Style pane to the right side: Home tab > Styles (click arrow under Change Styles)
3. Click the New Style button in the lower left of the Style pane.
4. Create a new style:
Name: Pre-TOC based on Heading 1
Click the Format button, then select Paragraph...
5. Click OK.
6. Click OK.
Apply this new style (Pre-TOC) to the "chapters" that precede the "text" entry in the published TOC (select text and apply style or use the format painter).
Insert the First TOC
1. From the References tab, click Table of Contents.
2. Scroll down and click Insert Table of Contents...
3. Select the Table of Contents tab if not already selected.
4. Click the Options button.
5. DELETE ALL NUMBERS from the TOC level column (don't forget to scroll all the way down).
6. Enter (insert) the number 1 next to Pre-TOC based on Heading 1.
7. Click OK.
The Print Preview box should only have one entry, Pre-TOC based on Heading 1.
8. Click OK.
9. The TOC is generated.
Position the cursor on the line below the last TOC entry line - THIS LINE IS ACTUALLY PART OF THE TOC and needs to be removed.
Click the BACK button on the keyboard to remove this "blank" TOC line.
1. Select the text "CHAPTER".
2. Click the New Style button in the lower left of the Style pane.
3. Create a new style:
Name: TEXT as TOC Heading 1
4. Click OK.
5. Click OK.
The word "CHAPTER" is now below the first TOC entry and formated the same as the TOC.
In Part 2: The Second TOC , the instructions add the second TOC to complete the desired published TOC.

Part 2: The Second TOC
1. Select the first chapter heading that will appear in the TOC below the "text" entry made in Part 1.
2. Apply style Heading 1.
3. Repeat for all subsequent chapter headings.
Apply sub level headings as desired, such as Heading 2 in this instructional.
Insert the Second TOC
On the TOC page, insert a new "second" TOC below the text word "CHAPTER".
1. Click on the line just below "CHAPTER".
2. From the Reference tab, click Table of Contents.
3. Scroll down and click Insert Table of Contents...
4. Select the Table of Contents tab if not already selected.
5. Click the Options... button.
6. DELETE ALL NUMBERS from the TOC level column (don't forget to scroll all the way down).
7. Enter (insert) the number 1 next to Heading 1.
8. Enter (insert) the number 2 next to Heading 2.
9. Click OK. The Print Preview box should only have two entries, Heading 1 and Heading 2.
10. Click OK. A warning dialog window pops up" "Do you want to replace the selected table of contents?"
11. Click NO (you do not want to replace the TOC, you are adding another TOC).
The TOC is generated.
