If you want a table that's stable, dead text, but where the page numbers
update to match changes in pagination...

1. Run a real TOC (from a TOC field) on the final document, just to
gather the headings.

2. Unlink the TOC to change it to dead text.

3. Convert it to a table and remove the page numbers.

4. Add your column of supporting documents.

5. Where the page number used to be, insert a cross-reference to the
heading in question, setting the options so only the page number

If it were me, I'd consider putting that column of page numbers to the
left of the heading titles column.
