Is there a way to automatically generate an acronym list in LibreOffice?

I am very comfortable with inserting tables of contents, indexes and bibliographies but haven't worked out a way to create a table of acronyms.

Ideally I would like to insert a tag in the text. If it is the first occurance of that tag then it would be expanded, for example:

"Another Meaningless Acronym (AMA)"

All subsequent occurances of the tag would just put ANA. Then I could insert in the document a table like:

AMA - Another Meaningless Acronym YAMA - Yet Another Meaningless Acronym etc.
