    Lou,

    I don't know if this article (by the formidable Diane Poremsky) will help -- it refers to a similar issue with Outlook, not with Word -- but it might point you in the right direction:

    How are you attempting to generate the TOC? (Which version of Word, BTW?)

    Have you ever had a similar problem, or is this the only document in which the TOC doesn't generate as expected?
