Why not generate your Table of Contents by clicking on Layout > Table of Contents? (Click More Options) At the bottom of that dialog box is the switch for Create PDF Bookmarks. That should fix you up.
Before you can redo your hyperlink, you have to delete the first one you created.
The fastest way to do that is to open the Hyperlinks panel (Window>Interactive>Hyperlinks menu command) and delete the first hyperlink from the panel. You'll notice that the text is still formatted (e.g. - cyan colored, underlined, etc.) if such formatting was applied with the previous hyperlink, so that may need to be adjusted to get the results you want.

No one should have to type up a table of contents. InDesign will happily generate a TOC for you, with hyperlinks, as Mike mentioned above.
- No retyping headings
- No introducing typos while retyping headings
- Automatic hyperlinks
- After you edit the document, update the TOC and you are done
It's been a long day here, and it turns out I have TWO copies of this and other files (one in This PC and the other on Local Disk; I don't know why that is, but didn't realize I'd been working with the Local Disk copy instead of the This PC copy).
Anyway, I checked all the Paragraph Styles and then went into the Layout\TOC option and started over--and everything works!
The one thing I couldn't find was hyperlinks listed in the Hyperlinks panel (I'd obviously done that wrong). There weren't any, but the PDF bookmarks feature in the TOC dialog box does what I need it to do, and my final line of type in my ToC now has a link, so I'm happy.
Thank you all for your help! It means a lot.

You don't need the Hyperlinks panel when you generate a TOC or index. Sounds like you did it exactly right.
