Table of Contents - Web Part in Sharepoint 2010

I read on a Microsoft page that there is suppose to be a Table of Contents web part under the "Content Rollup" category in Sharepoint 2010. However, I see about 10 other options, but not a Table of Contents option. Is there something that needs to be installed, or some way to insert the table of contents? I am basically editing a Wiki page and would like a table of contents to all of the level two headers on the page.

Thanks so much.

Hello,

the Table of Contents web part can be found in the Content Rollup category.

But reading your question, I'm afraid that this web part is not what you expect it to be. The Table of contents web part "Displays the navigation hierarchy of your site" (from the description in the Add Webpart dialog).

If you want a table of content like in Word, then you may be out of luck. As far as I know there is no web part that you can insert into a page that will list all level 2 headers of that page.

cheers, teylyn

Thanks Teylyn,

Couple of things. I still do not see "Table of Contents" under "Content Rollup" I see "Colleagues, In Common Between Us, Memberships, My Links" etc. but no "Table of Contents"

As an example, I am trying to duplicate the "Contents" on Wikipedia on my Sharepoint wiki. See for example: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/1941_Florida_hurricane

Is this not possible?

Hello,

here is a screenshot. The available web parts also depend on the site's template, and on the SharePoint license.

The functionality you describe is not available out of the box, but can be done with code and JQuery.

Thanks so much for your help. I didn't implement it, because it looks like this is going to take too much time for the benefit it would provide. I am really surprised Microsoft didn't include this feature.
