Assuming that the TOC 'Contents' in the Word document are in a predifined format and the format doesnt chnage,you can read the word file,parse the contents of the page and strip out the required sections.

For this you need an identifier on which you would base your parsing on.In this case I beleive you have to rely on vbCrLf (Carriage Return-Line Feed)

Use the instr and Mid functions in VB to go about your parsing.
