What you say is odd, but you give so little detail that it is impossible to
say where the problem is (sorry, I left my crystal ball at home today).

How about including the opening lines of your LaTeX file, i.e., up to and
including the first \section command, say?

Actually, gazing into the glass marble I keep in my pocket for emergencies,
I see that you either

1.  didn't run LaTeX twice, necessary to read in the .toc file, or
2.  put the \tableofcontents in the preamble and ignored the error messages,


Cheers,  Phil
