Word question - How to create a traditional TOC?

Subject: Word question - How to create a traditional TOC?

One of my current tasks requires me to use MS Word, and I'm not that
familiar with it. I've been able to figure almost everything I need
by reading the online help (brief and abrupt though it is), but
I've come up against one question I can't find an answer to,
and I'm hoping someone can help me.

I have a Table of Contents and I want to use the traditional formatting
for it. In other words: Entry, em space, page number
Introduction 1
Adjusting source code options 47
Reporting on analyses 78

I've discovered Word's Index and Tables window and I have selected a
format for my TOC. I've turned off "Right Align Page Numbers" and I've
discovered that Word now separates the entry and the page number with
only a space, not the traditional em space. How do I get an em space
automatically generated between entries and page numbers?

I know that if all else fails I can end each heading with an en space,
and the combination of en and letter space will look kinda-like an
em space, but I'd prefer the real thing. How do you do a traditional
TOC in Word? Does Word have any sort of Reference Page like I'm used
to using in Frame?
