Well what's on the wiki applies to 1.3.12, but don't worry about that

Did you go to Document Setup->Document Item attributes
press the Add button and enter, for example, TOC, set the type
(string?) and give a value

then go to Table of Content and indexes and then TOC should appear in
your drop down box
