Have you checked for any paragraph formatting in the headings that the
TOC is picking up? How about the TOC styles? It looks like there is a
paragraph return or a line break in the headings or you have headings
wrapping across two pages or two sections. Reveal the paragraph
formatting for the document and take a look at what is mixed in with
your headings. Improperly formatted documents can wreak havoc with
Word's automation features.
