Table Of Contents Strange Formatting Issue

I'm having real trouble getting a decent Table of Contents into a doc file.

I've set up the chapter headings and all seems fine here. The dialog that shows the structure is really non-intuitive imho and when it creates the TOC it seems really odd.

I cannot get it to indent the 1.1 entries but it's indenting the 1.1.1 entries. Also when the section number goes into double figures (so from section 10 onwards) the title of the section shoots over to the right hand side with a row of filler characters "." the the title on the far right then another row of filler characters and then the page number. Looks hideous frankly.
