I need to change "Chapter" word to, for example, "Heading". I tried to use command \renewcommand{\chaptername}{Heading} but it changed chapter name only in text, but in ToC it's still "Chapter". How can I change chapter title in ToC too?

  • Which document class(es) are you using? And, are you already using a package such as tocloft? – Mico Dec 13 '11 at 9:22

    Would you please add a minimal example? – egreg Dec 13 '11 at 9:22

try \contentsname, see http://www.tex.ac.uk/cgi-bin/texfaq2html?label=fixnam

And I agree, it sound rather odd that the ToC write the chapter name, so a MWE would be nice.

It seems that this issue was caused by babel package (I'm writing text in russian). Adding following commands solved this problem
