TOC stops working when I split epub by paragraph style

I'm trying to make an epub where the chapters of a book each start on a different page.  In the past I've done this by making each chapter a separate InDesign document, but now I'd like them to all be in the same InDesign document, but still start on a new page.

 

I've done this by selecting the "Split" function and telling it to split the epub on a given paragraph style.  That works great--chapters all start on a new page.  BUT as soon as I do that, the book will no longer convert to Kindle because there's a "TOC hyperlink missing."  

 

Nothing else has changed.  It works fine when I deselect the split options, but as soon as I tell it to split, I get this error.  (The epub also appears to be fine, but th ebook is useless to me if I can't upload it to Kindle.)  

 

Is it because I'm using the same style to split the chapters and to form the entries of the TOC?  I read somewhere that styles referenced in a TOC can't be used elsewhere, but I have no idea if that's actually the problem.  (I already removed the title from the TOC formatting, which did not fix the problem.)

 

Thoughts?

Update: it's not that I'm using the same style for both TOC and split, because when I change it to a totally different style to troubleshoot, the error still occurs.  Here's a screen shot of the error for reference.Screenshot 2020-10-08 161946.jpg
