Peter, Thanks for the info. I went back to double check what was going on. The tabs were not there. I manually inserted them. The tabs/leaders work for Paragraph Designs (auto generated by Frame) Heading2TOC through Heading 5TOC. They do not work for Heading1TOC (the top level).
The tab mark is there, and I checked to make sure that all of the definitions in the Paragraph Designer were the same for all (tab position and leader type). I get nice leaders and page # placement for all except the top level. Any suggestions?
