Text Analysis

I have some written material that I need to organize. The material is in separate documents. I would like some (easy, non-complicated) automated method that could parse the documents into some sensible format. Initially, I need a table of contents for a writing project I'm involved in. Can a table of contents be generated from separate documents? Is there a way to cluster/classify the text? Neural Network text analysis seems like overkill. Mind Mapping also seems like a lot of work. Maybe MS Word? I can merge the documents into one document if that would help. Any ideas appreciated and points awarded for workable solutions. Thanks.

yes, merging different documents can be merged into MS Word and, with minimal formatting (and knowledge of MS Word), you should be able to generate a table of contents.

I'm aware that a TOC can be generated by Word. I need to be able to group the whole set of documents in some type of automated process in clusters. I need something that can classify the topics in the individual papers. By frequency and relevance perhaps.
