Why won't my 2007 Microsoft Word turn two hyphens into a dash?

I have no Dash on my keyboard, which has mystified me for years. On my last computer this happened as well. From what I understand, Microsoft Word is supposed to take two hyphens with spaces on each side and turn it into a dash. I even understand that a single hyphen with spaces on each side might become a dash automatically too, but neither of these work on my computer.

All I can do is take a single hyphen and use it for a dash. Two hyphens for me looks like two hyphens with a little space. Anyone know what the problem might be?
