How to fix this TOC Numbering?

So, the rest of my TOC is correct except for these two entries. I included a screenshot of the TOC lines with the header numbering and the page number as well as where it is in the book and the heading number that applies there with the page number from that page. I am trying to fix the last image with the green highlights. The TOC is saying the heading is only 7.3 instead of 7.3.1.1.1 and that the page number is 26 instead of 7.3-26.

 

I asked the senior TW at my job and they were not sure what the issue was. 

Anyone have any info how to help with this?

… and the tab leader isn't there.

In the toc.fm file, see what's on Reference Page TOC.
Chances are there will be one or more <$paratext>…<$pagenum> template paras that don't match the others. Chances are this needs to be fixed at the source 7.3-26 page (due to unintended Paragraph Format applied), but it might also need an adjustment on that Reference Page.

Hi Angela:

 

It is always helpful to post screen shots with View > Text Symbols enabled. In this case, having the rulers visible too will help us address Bob's concern about the page number position.

 

Could you please enable the text symbols/rulers, and then click on heading in your first screen shot and make a note of the paragraph style? (It will be something along the lines of Heading5TOC.)

 

Then navigate to the TOC reference page. Click on the building blocks with the same style name applied (you have to click each one to find it) and then, with your cursor still on that line, share a screen shot with the entire reference page and top ruler visible.

 

Please repeat for the entry above (redacted in red) so that we can see the one that is working and the one that is not. 

 

This should be a quick fix.
