Hi roromx, welcome to MR!

As you haven't spoiled us with information about the steps you've done I can only show you one way you might be successful with your toc:

- Let's assume you have a little text with some chapters, you want the toc link to the chapter titles. How is your text stored? A doc-file, html-file, txt-file, something else? Best is to store it as a html-file.
- Open the html-file in an editor and tag every chapter title with <h2> (for instance).
It should look something like this
<h1>title of the book</h1>
<p>author</p>
<h2>title of chapter 1</h2>
<p>text chapter 1</p>
<h2>title of chapter 2</h2>
<p>text chapter 2</p>
and so on
- In Mobipocket Creator, choose "Table of Contents" in the left column, type in a title like "table of contents" or something like that in the language of the book.
Then insert "h2" in the first field (where "First Level" and "Tag name" come together)
Click "update" and then "build". The points of your toc should then link to the titles of your chapters.

This is a very rough explanation, please come back with any concrete question if it doesn't help you.
