Thanks so much for getting back to me on this.

Over 1,000 pages? Those are HUGE manuals!
**Yes!

I imagine that manually creating TOCs with links would be a huge amount of work.
**about 2 days every time the manual is updated

If you don't mind my asking, what type of products are the manuals documenting, that they are so big?
**Complex telecom equipment

Would it be possible to break the content up into separate docs that would both make it easier for users to navigate through the content and allow you to generate TOCs?
**Possible - yes, effective - doubtful. Users will never be sure in which manual to look for a piece of information, they will need to open and search more than one.
