Default How do I see a doc outline with custom headings?

I can't use View - Outline for the custom headings I created (the
equivalent of MyHeading1, MyHeading 2, etc.). I can't use View -
Document Map, either.

And every time I use Index - Reference - Index Tables to generate a new
TOC, the Microsoft built-in style names come up (Heading 1, Heading 2,
etc.). I have to click Options, click the Reset button, then choose my
custom styles again.

Is there an easy way to quickly generate an outline of my custom style
headings? Is there a way to set my custom styles as the default in the
TOC?

I'm using Microsoft Office 2002 with SP3, on Microsoft Windows XP
Version 2002 with SP2.

Thanks very much!

First, unless you have a good reason not to, you should use the built-in
headings because they have properties that you can't give your own styles.

That said, you can at least get them automatically in TOC and in outlining
by formatting them as headings in the style definition. (Format Paragraph
Outline Level)
