Table of Contents - not in order of page sequence

 I created a TOC but it's not in order of page sequence. It should be Breakfast, Lunch then Dinner. But showing Dinner, Breakfast, Lunch.

 

I only have 2 paragraph styles for the 2 levels used in the TOC. I have attached screen shots of how the TOC is set up.

 

I am using multiple text boxes that are not threaded. When I try to thread them, the text changes along with text styles - so didnt thread them. All text boxes are lined up exactly the same on each page - I verified the X and Y coordinates on each page - and they match exactly. The text frames have no indents or special formatting applied.

 

Why is this happening?

Upload your file on dropbox, wetransfer or similar and, as Barb Binder wrote, share the link here. 

If you want to share the link in private click on my name and then click on "send a message".

I can see your file tomorrow morning

Hi I did respond to the latest email on November 20th by providing the Dropbox Link to my uploaded InDesign file. However I haven't received any response since.

Wait. In your last screen shot, you have the Sort Entries in Alphabetical Order enabled. Disable it, update the TOC. Was that the issue?

I don't see your dropbox link anywhere in this thread. Did you send it to Vladan directly?

 

And did you disable Sort Entries in Alphabetical Order and update your TOC, as per my last post?
