Looking Inside: How FrameMaker Creates a Table of Contents

You might have heard the term generated files. That’s exactly what tables of contents are in FrameMaker. FrameMaker generates, or creates, the table of contents based on some parameters, or rules, that you set up.

The table of contents does not exist until FrameMaker brings it into being the first time. FrameMaker gathers information from source documents and inserts this information in a separate file—the table of contents file. Once the file exists, you can decide what other elements you want to include and format the look of your table of contents.
