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... http://www.frameexpert.com/scripts/chaptertoc.htm You (or Rick) could probably hack it for the LOT.
