    You know when you have something like this:

    blah.....................................................page 69
    bleeblah...............................................page 56


    i know indesign has a way to designate the space between the words on a line, like the name and a page number, as an automatically adjusted thing.

    like you notice the 2nd line doesnt line up exactly....

    if I add words, or subtract letters, id want the distance to stay the same, with little tweaking.

    what the hell is this called!?

    Specifically, use the "leader" function in InDesign tabs.

    I would suggest playing with the Tab palette like emw said look for "Leader" and try changing the tab justification. Once you do that you'll be set.

    Also once you get comfortable with that you could try working/setting up a TOC (Table of Contents)

    Instead of mucking about with the tabs palette, you can use the right indent tab (shift+tab) and your page nos. will be right justified. No leader, though.

    Title (shift+tab) #
