You certainly can! I do it all the time (i.e., a big one at the front of
the book and a small one for the beginning of each chapter). Simply block
the entire text you want the small TOC for (in my case, the chapter) and put
a bookmark on it. Then insert a TOC field using the /b switch and the
bookmark name. If you get the dialog box that says "replace TOC" click NO.
If you hit F1 while your cursor is inside the TOC field (codes revealed)
you'll get context-sensitive help with the switches. Hope that helps.
Email me privately if you have problems.
