Default Creating a table of contents with each section separate page numbers

I want a TOC that section one goes 1-1; 1-2; 1-3 then section two is 2-1; 2-2; 2-3.

Like a vehicle's manual. So if in the future I need to change section 1, I don't have to change section two because the page numbers shifted.

There are several links that will help you...here are a few:

Numbered Headings
Understanding styles | ShaunaKelly.com
Understanding Styles in Microsoft Word
Microsoft Word Help, Tips and Tutorials – Making the most of Word in your business | ShaunaKelly.com

I know this is not what you ask for but, if you take the time to digest the information that you need (from "Numbered Headings"), the rest of the information will only help you further down the road.

See I want to include chapter numbers with page numbers in Word. How can I do this?
This is called "folio numbering" and is often not a good idea. Read the linked article about the industrial disaster that resulted from using this. However, the link above does tell you how to do it. JimP is correct, this is very much tied into using the Built-In Heading Styles tied to numbering and using styles correctly. Read and implement the links he gave you, especially the first one.
