I have a document and I would like to create a Table of Content.

I tried with Insert > Indexes and Tables > Indexes and Tables... and added a title, then I pressed OK.

But I only got a title and no Table of Content.

How do I add my headlines to the Table of Content? Should they be added automatically?

According to OpenOffice wiki every item which you want to see in the Table of Content must be styled as heading. So change style of titles of paragraphs to heading (1,2,3 etc.) and you will see them in the Table of Content.
Then right-click on the Table of Content and select Update Index/Table from the pop-up menu.
