In order to automatically create (Table Of Contents)TOC, you need to do a few things before staring the process of actually making TOC.

While you are preparing your document you should use heading styles for chapter names, section names and subsection names. The depth of this hierarchy depends on your documents. A typical hierarchy would look like:

Chapter name

Section name

Subsection name


It’s not necessary that you use sections and subsections. You could very well put content just under chapters without having any sections or subsections.
