Correcting a couple of bugs here is a revied version of the function:


ClearAll[TOCForNotebook];



TOCForNotebook[] :=
  Module[{nbr, data, cells, nb},

   nb = EvaluationNotebook[];

   SetOptions[nb, System`CellID -> True];

   SelectionMove[nb, All, Notebook, AutoScroll -> False];
   NotebookWrite[nb, NotebookRead[nb]];

   NotebookFind[nb, "Section", All, CellStyle];
   nbr = NotebookRead[nb];
   data =
    nbr /. {Cell[x_, "Section", ___, z : (CellID -> w_), ___] :> {x,
        w}};

   cells = TextCell[
       Button[TextCell[#[[1]], "Hyperlink"],
        NotebookFind[EvaluationNotebook[], #[[2]], All, CellID],
        Appearance -> "Frameless"],
       "Text"] & /@ data;

   cells = First[ToBoxes[#]] & /@ cells;

   SelectionMove[EvaluationNotebook[], Before, Notebook,
    AutoScroll -> True];

   NotebookWrite[nb, cells];

   ];
