Rene,

While this two-phase approach will work without a problem, if you want
to achieve the level of automation you're talking about, I think one
of Rick Quatro's prepared scripts, ChapterTOC, is what you want
actually want. It inserts the TOC entries as cross-references at
whatever point in the parent file you select and updates them when you
rerun the script.

$40, I think, and you need to have FrameScript...

You (or Rick) could probably hack it for the LOT.
