Here is a downloadable sample of my Word document.

I have created a custom table of contents in my word document. However, the pages numbers in my "Table of Contents" appear with the hyphens like this:

The page numbers in the table of contents appear same as the page numbers format in the page footer.
I am not able to prevent the hyphens from appearing in the "Table of Contents". How can I remove/prevent the hyphens from appearing in the "Table of Contents"?

Here is a screenshot from the TOC dialog.

  • @cybernetic.nomad.... I have added the relevant format in the ToC WIndow. Sep 22 at 15:19
  • I suspect that you have formatted your page numbers in the Format Page Numbers dialog to include the hyphens. Sep 22 at 16:58

I was able to replicate your problem.

You need to change the formatting of your page numbers in the Format Page Numbers Dialog.

If you need the hyphens in your footer (or header) insert them there, not in the page number format.
