Word 2007 - set ToC to reference sections instead of headings?

I have a document that has the various topics separated into different sections.  Each section has the title in the page header.  I tried inserting a table of contents, but it appears that by default the ToC is set up to look for headings.  The document doesn't have any headings because the text that would normally be in a heading is in the page headers of the various sections.  Is there some way to make the ToC look at these instead of looking for headings?

Useful information.  Too much work to use this time, but definitely good to have for next time.

Unfortunately there is no simple way to do that.

Apart from using Heading-styled paragraphs, you can also mark sections of text for inclusion (Alt+Shift+O), but this doesn't work for text in Headers. Since Headers are designed to be repeated on each page, it wouldn't normally make much sense.
