Running Header not correctly populating

The rest of the headers in this file are behaving themselves, but for some reason, Appendices B and C have decided they want to be Appendix A. I am uninterested in their personal identity crisis and need to insist that they be Appendices B and C. What's especially weird is that it works fine on the very first page of B (first image below), then switches back on the second spread (second image below). It's the same text variable that I've used throughout the book with no problem; it's only gotten weird here in the appendices.

And here's the text variable definition (Lesson Topic is identical except for the paragraph style):

I've tried scrapping and recreating the master page. That did not help.

I'm running Windows 10, InDesign 14.0.2.

Got it: The text frame with the titles in it was not linked to the others. Once I got it connected to the thread, it worked correctly.

Hi

Do you have all 312 pages in one file, then, and not as chapters in a book?

Hi

Go Section and Numbering for the misbehaving chapters and look in the lower half for Chapter Numbering. Appendix B needs to continue chapter numbering from A, and C needs to continue from B.

Then go to your Book panel menu and update your numbers.
