Default Updating Table of Figures-Tab Isn't Sticking

Wanted:
Table 1 The Number of Times Ben Goes
to the Store
Table 2 Average Age of Tomatoes

The "the" when updating doesn't hold the tab. The result is
Table 1The Number of..... and I have to go in and put a manual tab. THis is
a pain if you have long List of Tables.
When I update the style to match the selection, it still doesn't hold. What
is the trick?

Do you have a tab in the table caption itself? If so, you can add the \w
switch to the TOC field, and the tab will be preserved. You'll probably need
to add a tab stop for it in the TOC style (unless you have Compatibility
Options set to automatically add a tab stop at the hanging indent position).
