Default table of contents and headings not aligned in TOC

Almost done, but because I used automatic numbering and styles, my numbers
1-9 have the same margins as numbers 10-65. As a result, the headings in the
TOC across from Sections 1 to 9 are slightly misaligned with headings having
double digit sections. Is there any fix for that? Thanks.

Not any easy fix, no.

Reading one of your other responses, I was able to edit the TOC by pressing
Ctrl+Shift+F9 to convert the TOC field to regular text. Then I correct the
problem, and the correction stays in place if I update the TOC by using the
F9 key. If I change the TOC through the insert "Reference"/"Tables and
Columns" section, I of course have to start all over. Thanks!

If you unlink the TOC, you can no longer update it with F9. So before you
take this step, make sure that editing is complete and the headings and page
numbers won't change.
