Default Custom table of contents referencing a custom field

Hi,

I would like to create a custom table of contents that references a customer field, to be exact a revision number for that document.

I have a number of separate documents linked to a commom contents page at the moment, in addition to the titles (heading) of each document I would like to be able to include a revision number for that document.

i'd like it to sit within a 3x..... table.

I can add the "styleref" data field but how do It only does one field, i.e. the first it comes to only.

Is this possible?

Yes. It is possible.
If you want to use a StyleRef field, just use a different style for each point. The styles need not have any different formatting, just different names.

That is really doing a TOC the hard way, though.

Thanks for the link.

What about the addition of another data field to each line of the contents page?

Look into the TC field and the REF field. You use the TC field to give contents to your TOC. It could use a REF field to pull in information from another field.
