Microsoft Word has an automatic table of contents function that can automatically generate a table of contents for your document, provided you correctly tag the chapter headers and sub-headers that you wish to show in your table of contents.
Once the "Heading 1" style has been updated to match that in your document, for the other chapter headers, just highlight the chapter title and left-click on the (now-modified) "Heading 1" style to apply it.
For sub-chapter titles, repeat this process, but use the "Heading 2" style instead.
