Are your Appendix names aligning with different tab stops? This might happen
if the phrase "Appendix B - " (for instance) is even sligntly longer than
the phrase "Appendix A - ".

> I have a group of several appendices, each autonumbered using an
"appendix" style. The format of each appendix title is:
> "Appendix A - Name of Appendix"
> I'm autogenerating my toc, and including the appendices in the toc. Word
is doing two things with the appendix titles:
> Appendix A - Name here ................ #
> Appendix B - ...................Name here

> I've checked the length of each title, there is no pattern.
> I'd like to get this thing working on its own, because it's a pain to keep
manually fixing the toc everytime I regenerate it. Any thoughts?
