James, You don't mention the setup on the Reference Pages of your TOC file, which is what controls the formatting of the TOC entries as far as what variables are invoked. The other info you provided controls the formatting of the TOC entries, but not the content of them.
Page through the reference pages until you reach the section that contains the TOC entries -- standard title is "Table of Contents Specification." There's one entry for each type of tag you include -- a line for heading1, a line for heading2, etc. I'm betting that the entries don't contain or use the <$chapnum> . You probably have something like <$paratext> <$pagenum> in place and you need to have <$paratext><$chapnum>-<$pagenum>. Be sure to include tab stops where appropriate. Make the change, save the file, and update again. Art On 10/2/06, James Dyson <jdyson at kvh.com> wrote: > Good morning, > > I was hoping someone could help me.
