Looks like you are using style sets. have you duplicated the styles in and out of the "General" set? The TOC want ths the style inside the set.
No, there are no duplicates of the paragraph styles. I moved them into folders to keep things a bit cleaner - Then created the TOC. I just tried to move the paragraph styles out of the folder and re-apply the styles to the headings - then creating the TOC. The same thing still happens.
Yes, all styles are applied correctly and I have exported the file to .inx format with no change.
This is obviously not a common problem as I have found very little information about similar issues. Still, it seems like something is corrupt in my file.
Certainly something is wrong someplace, but I don't think gussing is going to get us very far. If you post a libnk to a sample (even just the template), one or more of us will proably find time to take a look and see if we can figure it out.
I just discovered another problem. If I create a new paragraph style and try to apply this to any of the text it doesn't pick up the pargraph style. For example: The style may be 22pt with the colour red, but the acual text stays 12pt in black....
I will find out if I have permission to upload the file so that you can take a proper look at it.
I have uploaded the InDesign file so that you can take a closer look at:
The file is called "Template_File.indd"
So, as discussed the main issues are:
1) The TOC doesn't generate all the listings (only those with the applied paragraph style "Heading 1 - Appendix")
2) When I try to create a new pargraph style and apply it to existing or new text, it reads the pargraph style in the Paragraph Style menu, but the style doesn't actually apply.
Hopefully you can figure something out from this. I really appreciate your help.

The curent file appears to be corrupt, but saveable. I was able to generate a valid TOC after doing the following:
Create a new A4 docment of 1 page.
Rename the master page in the new file to use prefix z (this is so you don't have to set up your masters again).
Select all pages from the original doc in the pages panel.
From the Pages panel menu choose Move Pages... and choose "after Page 1" in your new document, say OK.
Delete page 1 from the new file.
Go to Layout > TOC Styles and click the Load button.
Navigate to the original doc and choose it, say OK.
Delete the current TOC frame.
Create the TOC.
I just tried what you suggested and it now works. Clever thinking. I'm glad there was a "quick" solution.
Thank you so much!
