How to set Table of Content numbering to use 01, 05, etc. for page numbers


Question

I was inspired by the table of contents in this document and set out to mimic, in a document of my own, the way the page numbers fall before the text in large numbers each with two digits (e.g. 01 instead of 1). I'm fairly familiar with creating and managing a TOC in InDesign but I can't figure out how to do this. I've tried using Drop Caps in the TOC paragraph style and that gets me the large number, but I can't figure out how to get the numbers to format as 03 instead of 3 (with a zero in front of single-digit numbers).

Any suggestions? I tried adding a numbered list to the style (where I know I can use a 01,02, etc. format), but of course that only gives me a numbered list 01, 02, 03 instead of the pages the text refers to (e.g. 03, 09, 17). Thanks in advance for your help.

Thanks @jongware, that did it. In case someone else finds this thread in the future, here's what I did:

  1. Clicked the first page in my doc
  2. Went to Main Menu Layout > Numbering & Section options
  3. Under Page Numbering, choose 01,02,03 etc. from the dropdown
