Is this a \listoftables with a LaTeX class? If so, type the following into
your document preamble somewhere after the \documentclass line:

\makeatletter
\renewcommand*{\l at table}{\@dottedtocline{1}{1.5em}{2.8em}}
\makeatother

I typed "2.8em" in place of "2.3em" that I found in article.cls to allow
another digit. This is what you can play with. (Not tested, guessing from
what I did weeks ago. "1.5em" refers to the column of \section numbers, may
be wrong with the .cls you are using.)

Did you try the "symbols" environment?
