I have a Table of Contents in my MS Word document, and I am struggling to get the numbering right, as when the numbering of the sections goes into double digits, the indentation of the section titles in the TOC changes.

Here is a picture:

enter image description here

so what must I do in order to align the titles correctly all together by padding the nyumbers on single digits only - btw, I don't want to use double digit formating for the numbering.

thanks Philip

I don't know whether applicable to Word 2003 but for Word 2007 there is an Alignment option in Home, Paragraph, Numbering, Define New Number Format. – pnuts May 20 '13 at 19:55
Click on Show/Hide hidden characters and see whether the whitespace between the section number and the section title is spaces or a tab. If it's a tab, try editing the tabs stops in the TOC1 style. If it's spaces, try changing the definition of the tavle so it uses a tab. – Scott May 20 '13 at 20:21
Did neither comment help? – pnuts Jun 30 '13 at 2:06
not really, in the end I had a document that was 250MB, so I started a new one, and copied everything over... thanks anyway – Our Man In Bananas Jul 1 '13 at 8:21
