I need help with regard to customizing the TOC in WebWorks Publisher 2003 for FrameMaker Version

I've used WebWorks Help 4.0 template to generate the online help. I have been able to generate the TOC successfully with the Book Title (guide name) appearing at TOCLevel1, the Chapter Title appearing at TOCLevel2, Heading 1 at TOCLevel3, and so on as shown:

TOC | Page

TOCLevel1 -------- ABC User Guide Title Page
TOCLevel2 -------- Chapter 1 Introduction to ABC
TOCLevel3 -------- Heading 1 ...
Chapter 2 ...
Heading 1 ...
Chapter 3 ...
Heading 1 ...

But, the problem is that I do not want the corresponding Title page to appear when I click the guide name in the TOC.  For example, in the given screen shot, the Title page appears (I have mapped the Copyright info to NoOutput tag in WebWorks) when I click ABC User Guide in the TOC. Instead, I want the Introduction to ABC page to appear when I click ABC User Guide. The ABC User Guide should appear in the TOC without including the file in my source files for WebWorks.

Is it possible to fetch the book title (guide name) from the .wdt (WebWorks template file) and then use it in the TOC. For example, if my WebWorks template name is ABC.wdt, then can I fetch the name ABC and use it as TOCTitle at TOCLevel1 in my TOC??? Should we use macros to customize Page Styles and Paragraph Styles to achieve this?

Please reply as soon as possible.

Thanks & regards,
