Answer
Mary are you referencing a Table of Contents and you want the pages to update as you add text?

if so that can be done.  I am not seeing which version of Word you are using.

https://support.office.com/en-us/article/create-a-table-of-contents-or-update-a-table-of-contents-eb275189-b93e-4559-8dd9-c279457bfd72


I prefer to create a table of contents based on Heading Styles.
You will apply a Heading Style, Heading 1, 2 or 3 for example to the beginning of a subject


So you need a blank page where you will place the TOC

As you add text you can right click the table of contents and choose update entire table.

If this is not what you are looking for let me know.
