Go to the TOC spec in the reference pages. I suspect the spec for the chapter/appendix entries is using <$paranum> instead of <$chapnum> (especially if the TOC's based on an older template; pre-v.6, there was no <$chapnum> variable). Change <$paranum> to <$chapnum>, save, update the book, and you should be good. Might want to root out the vestiges of the older numbering wherever they exist. HTH! Richard ------ Richard G.
