When you insert a Microsoft Word table of contents into a doclet, you can choose either a manual, automatic, or custom type. For manual types, you can create page number links by using links and cross-references or by inserting a manual table of contents (see Inserting Links and Cross-References to Pages in Doclets). For automatic or custom types, the table of contents is updated whenever the doclet is merged into the report package. For example, preview the report package or the section that contains the table of contents to view the dynamically updated table of contents.
If you preview only the doclet that contains the table of contents, no entries are displayed in the table. You must preview the report package or the section that contains the doclet to see the updated table of contents.
Automatic and custom tables of contents are available for Microsoft Word report packages only.
