After you add the text, you need to update the table before the text will appear in the table.

Many Word documents require a table of contents be added to them.

Important: If the table of contents was created manually (in other words, if it wasn't created automatically from the headings), Word won't be able to update it for you.

I am trying make a change to a heading in my document, when I go to the Table of Contents tab to update table it does not give me the option to Update Page Numbers Only or Entire Table, it automatically removes all of my page numbers from the TOC and does not even add the change I made to the actual heading. This tends to update fields here there and everywhere. If you accidentally convert it to text it will no longer update.
