I have about one hundred files in Open Office's .odt -format such that

1 chapter
2 chapter
...
100 chapter

I would like to make a table of contents for these files. However, the problem is that each chapter is in a separate file.

I finally need to convert these files to pdf. It would like to know how you can convert the 100 files + table of contents to a single file efficiently. I have done that at the moment by Converting the files first to pdf in OO and then binding the files in Adobe Pro. However, this procedure is very time-consiming.

How can you make a table of contents of the hundred .odt -files?

Please, add tags for open-office and pdf. – Masi Jul 21 '09 at 12:46
    
I opened a new thread about applying Monaco -font to all headers in my master document at superuser.com/questions/10674/… – Masi Jul 22 '09 at 9:37

You need to create a master document (PDF), then you can create a comprehensive table of contents (PDF). You should be able to convert the master document to PDF and have it bring all the sub-documents along with it.

Thank you a lot for your answer! @ I have no headers in my files. The headers should be my filenames. Is there any way to make a Table of Contents based on filenames only? – Masi Jul 22 '09 at 9:09
    
You might try to see if making your headings using a filename field would work. See Chapter 14 - Working with Fields: documentation.openoffice.org/manuals/userguide3/… – Dennis Williamson Jul 22 '09 at 11:40
