I have problems with creating a TOC.
Executing MakeContents[nb,"Simple"] aborts with the warning

NotebookSaveWarning::nbmod: The notebook must be saved to use the function 

although I have saved my notebook before executing the command.
Is it possible to insert a TOC into the notebook that executes this 
command, i.e to insert a notebook into itself.

If not, how is this thing done in every days work. It would be strange if 
notebook A must create a TOC.nb and then try to insert TOC.nb into A.

Is this really the way things are done with MakeContents?
