Default Headers with numbers in front of them and table of contents

I have headers with letters in front of them. I want to use those
headers in the table of contents but I don't want the numbers
included. For example:

A. Physical Characteristics

In the Table of Contents I want

Physical Characteristics 14
not

A. Physical Characteristics 14

I want to keep the lettered headers.

The simplest way to do this is to click on the Modify button in the Insert
Table of Contents dialog and then modify each of the TOC styles that are
used in your table of contents so that the Paragraph has a negative left
indent sufficiently large to put the number off the left edge of the paper
and has a left aligned tab stop at the point where you want the title of the
heading to appear (probably 0) and a right aligned tab stop with a dot
leader at the right hand margin.

If you can't get that to work for you (e.g., if you're printing to a pdf and
the number insists upon showing up), once you're sure the document is final,
you can convert the ToC into hard text (Ctrl+Shift+F9) and delete the
letters manually.
