justify table of contents

I'm creating a document in Word that is similar to a table of contents, but
is not something that I could use the TOC formatting for. It has items
listed -- some indented and some not, -- then there are dots over to a number
(like a page number) at the right margin. I can't for the life of me get
the numbers at the right margin to line up evenly. Justifying the text --
and leaving some spaces between the text and the beginning of the dots --
doesn't seem to work. Any help would be appreciated.

Re: justify table of contents

You need a right-aligned tab stop at the right margin for the number. You
can add tab stops by clicking the horizontal ruler. To choose the type of
tab stop to add, click the tab selector to the left of the ruler.

Also, note that Word uses right-aligned tab stops for the page numbers of
tables of contents. If you want to see how it is set up, compare the
settings in a document that has an automatic TOC.
