Use Heading Styles for the headings in the document and then create the
table of contents from the Heading Styles.

For information about how to set up the numbering, see:

How to create numbered headings or outline numbering in your Microsoft Word
document

http://www.ShaunaKelly.com/word/numb...Numbering.html

If you create a template to hold your numbering scheme, you can use that
template as the basis for new documents (using File New) and the new
documents will then inherit your numbering scheme. To do that, see:
