Default How do I add headers on to a table of contents?

A table of contents was created in a Word Document. I am not the individual
that created the TOC, however, I have added some information (tables,
descriptions, etc.) to the content of the document. How do I get the TOC to
update with the new headers and correct page numbers? FYI: I have gone to
the Outlining Toolbar and clicked on Update TOC (updated both: the page
numbers only and the entire table) and it doesn't fix.

Please help. Thanks so much!

If you want additional items to show up in your TOC you must either have
them formatted in a heading style followed by the TOC or mark the entries as
TC entries. See http://addbalance.com/usersguide/complex_documents.htm.
