Word TOC Problem

User generated imageAfter switching to Office 2013 my Table of Contents suddenly started displaying what appears to section numbers (see attached) and these are being picked up in Acrobat as well. These numbers don't appear anywhere in the document. TOC is using 3 levels of headings. Worked fine in Office 2007.

Delete your current TOC and try inserting it again.
Make sure the style of the paragraph where your cursor is located is styled as Normal
Make sure to take a look at the TOC Format, usually From Template is what I select.  
If you can post a copy of the document that would be helpful

OK, I've deleted and reinserted, then opened in Office 7 and saved. The table of contents looks normal again in Word 2013, but the Acrobat plugin is still picking up the heading numbers for book marks in both versions. I can't expect you to troubleshoot the plugin and I will open a support case with Adobe.
Have you tried 'Save as' PDF directly from Word?

Same result... it puts a 1B.. .60B in front of every book mark.
You need to look at the conversion options.  Sometimes these are in the PDF Printer Properties.
Um...I really don't mean to be petty here llhuff but I'm wondering if you chose the solution and assigned points incorrectly above.  According to your post you followed my steps and that fixed your problem but the solution and points were awarded to paulsuave.  

No offense is meant here to anyone.  I'm just wondering.
