I am using the Headings function in MS Word 2007 so as to create a table of contents and I have chosen Roman numerals over numbers as the section numbers.  However, they appear as small letters and I want capitalised numbers i.e. IV, V, etc.  How can this be done?

Of course, I should have seen that :)

Is there an easy way to change all my section headings without having to format paint them all one by one as it is not changing them to capitals automatically after I do the first one.

Thanks.

If you have used a Heading style to format the headings, for example Heading1, change one line with the Heading1 style to the desired numbering, then right-click the Heading1 style in the ribbon and select "Update Heading x to match selection".

If you have not used styles to format the paragraphs, then you will have to do it manually.

For an easy way to identify which styles are used in a paragraph, see this article: http:/A_7349-Display-the-style-of-the-current-selection-in-the-QAT-Word-2007-and-2010.html

Atually, just on the back of that, I've now noticed that when I update the entire table of contents, some of the contents lines are not properly indented or aligned with the ones above.  The roman numerals are all aligned fined, but thent he spacing between the dot as in IV.    [Text] is not the same.

I have used the format painter on each one manually, but for some reason some are alighned and some are not.  And I cant manually change each of them as the ruler is indicating that they are all the same distance from the left side.  Any suggestions?

The TOC uses its own styles. You need to change the TOC style definitions to manipulate the spacing in the TOC.
