OK, now it's working. Turns out that it's the same switch, i.e. \S. The
difference is that with the TOC, I was able to manually add the switch
to an existing field code for the TOC.

For the index, when I manually edited the field code, I got an error.
But when I went to Insert=>Field to create the index, resulting in the
_exact same_ field code, I got the correct numbering with no error.

Gotta love Word.
