As I pointed out in my post to John, your guess is wrong. Nothing is stripped from a TOC file if it is renamed and included in a new book file. The TOC set-up is part of the book component properties. When generating a file, Frame for each generated file: 1 - looks for a correctly named file. 2 - If not found, creates a new empty file based on the first non-generated file in the book. Will also a reference with the required definitions. 3 - If found, opens the file and strips out all paragraphs with formats with suffixes matching the generated file (*TOC, *IOM, *LOT, *LOF). 4 - Based on the list of paragraphs or elements in the book component, Frame then builds the generated file. Note: Number 3 above makes for interesting observations. The new generated content is created in the same place as the deleted paragraphs. I'm not sure if it is the location of the first of the last deleted paragraph that determines the start point for the generated content, but you can have generated files with standard text at the beginning and end which frame will always leave alone when generating the file.
