Sounds like it might be a use for a running header variable.
Yes we tried that too. No luck.
Maybe I should try to explain further. We want "1. Heading" on the left page and a corresponding "1. Heading" on the right page.
On the next spread, we would have "2. Heading" on the left page, and "2. Heading" on the right.
The left-hand page follows our auto-numbering para style, and is therefore included in the TOC. The heading on the right-hand side is a clone of the left and we don't want it to appear in the TOC.
It could easily be done manually, but we were just trying to automate this process in our template, since we have about 100 pages like that in each file, and many, many files to do.
Thank you for the feedback though!

It should work if the paragraph style for the variable is also a numbered list (define a second list), or if you convert the auto numbering in your headings to text when you are done.
Ok thanks. I'll give that a try to see if I can get that to work.
Couldn't get that text variable to auto-number on the master page, but works good on the document pages.
Thanks for the help!
