David,

There are two methods I have used. 

First is to use the cross-reference feature - place cross-references to the 
headings you want for your TOC. Define the TOC para style to incoude a tab with 
a leader for the page number. Define the cross-reference format to include the 
paratext, tab, and pagenum variables. The page numbers are updated just like 
any cross-reference.

The second method is more complex. Generate a chapter TOC using the Special 
menu. This generates a separate file. Import the TOC file by reference into the 
chapter at the point you want the TOC. Then when you need to update the TOC, 
regenerate the TOC using the Special menu again. Unfortunately, this method 
requires manual steps, so I prefer the first method.

Good luck,
Frank Harper
