ToC stopped working on deadline day

November 30Hits:0
Advertisement
I have an InDesign book project, over 300 pages, due at the printer today.
This morning my table of contents stopped working properly, it no longer references most of my chapters. I'm getting ToC references for 3 out of 37 chapters.
I've tried creating a new book file: no help.
I've tried removing and re-adding chapters to the book: no help.
I've tried rebuilding the ToC style: no help.
I've tried reapplying the paragraph styles which are supposed to be referenced: no help.
I've tried adding new text objects to the missing chapters, these do show up in the ToC.
If I copy the content out of a chapter and into a new document, it will be show up. But if I do this to all 34 missing chapters I will A) miss the deadline, B) lose all my see[also] index references, and C) go mad.
Has anyone seen this before?
Got any ideas or suggestions for a fix?

I'll try the .inx route. That's a good suggestion, thanks.
Yes, I do have 'Include Book Documents (bookName)' ticked and it is showing the correct book name. Definitely worth checking for the obvious mistake
[edited to add]
Ixnay on the .inx, eh?*
*That is to say: the InDesign Interchange format export-import tango did not help.
