Generating an automated table of contents

Is there a way to generate an automated table of contents on a sheet to where the table of contents takes the description, sheet number, and section off of each sheet in the project and lists each in a row of the table?

What you're looking for would be Drawing List Report.  In the Project Manager Pane right click on the project that needs the table of contents and select Drawling List Report.  From there you can specify what drawings to go into the report, the format of it and what fields should be included.  Here's the Autodesk Wiki Page: Drawing List Report.

That is a much easier way of doing it than what I was doing. I was manually updating it. The only difference is that it isn't as ascetically pleasing.

To get the looks that you want, go to Format, Table Style. Select the ACE table style and modify it to suit how you want the table to look.
