I’ve seen too many files squeeze in right under a filing or courier deadline. Everything is in order, the document content, footnotes, citations and your tables. Just prior to, or after clicking the final save, send or print command, the table of authorities and table of contents are updated and they fall apart: page numbering is incorrect, text mysteriously appears or disappears from within the table, and formatting takes on a whole new look (and not for the better). I don’t see this scenario changing much. Last-minute edits are the nature of the beast. I won’t even go into the frayed nerves! What can change is understanding why tables fall apart in the first place, and how to get that file out the door in an acceptable format. You can worry about fixing the file at a later time.
