Microsoft Word table of contents

I have a TOC in Microsoft Word 2013.

I've attached an image of one of the pages. My problem is that I cannot figure out what setting to change to get the page numbers to all align with one another. The H1, H2, H3, H4 headings are in use on the sample.

I need help/direction to how to affect the necessary things to clean up the TOC with right aligned page numbers that appear evenly in a column.

Is it a automatically generated toc in a quick part bubble?

Yes it is. I used automatically generated table 1 and modified the font for H1

If what @Paul says works and no doubt it does, it might be better to edit the styles rather than apply formatting over the top of them 😉

The easiest way is to click in each level and set a right-aligned tab on the right margin of the page where you want the page numbers to be.  Drag the right margin marker about 1/2" inch to the left and then drag the right-align tab to where the right margin marker used to be.  This has to be done for each level of the Table of Contents.
