Default Alligning numbers right table of contents for a 6x9 format

I love the table of contents feature in ms word 2007. However, I am writing a
book that is in a 6x9 format (margins adjusted a per the lulu.com template)

when I insert the table of contents for this 6x9 book, the numbers for the
table fly off the page all the way to the right as if it were your standard
8.5x11 page.

How can I allign the numbers to the right margin of the 6x9 book? I tried
doing it manually with periods or dashes, but they never light up correctly,
and it's quite frustrating.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

If you insert the TOC *after* setting your margins, this shouldn't happen,
as the right tab stop is set dynamically when the TOC is created. But it is
not adjusted if you change the margins, so you have to do it manually. If
you can see and grab it on the ruler, you can drag it back to your right
margin. Otherwise, you'll need to do it through the Tabs dialog. Since TOC
styles are set to update automatically, you need do it only once for a
single entry at each level, and the rest will follow suit.
