Don't try to do it manually using the period or dot key. Go to
Format-Borders and Shading and click on the Borders tab. Select the Style
that looks like dots and apply it to the bottom of the box under "Preview."
The dots will appear under the line where it was inserted, and will reach
from the left to the right border.

Hello Brian,

If you're trying to use a 'dot leader" go to tabs and clear all and select
the dot leader and right and set the tab where you want. Then when you press
tab your will get a line of dots. I hope this has been helpful to you.
