Question about creating an index


J

Jeff

Using Word 2002 in Windows, but also have Word 2007

I'm creating an index at the end of a book manuscript. Some of the page
entries in the index refer to the text. But there are some index entries
that come from footnotes. Is there a trick that would make the footnote
entries appear differently in the index?

It would be nice if the index identified footnote links by adding
something before the page number or in Italics. Is there a trick to make
Word do this?

Thank you.

Jeff

What you can do is display the *page number* for some entries in bold or
italics. To do that, add the \b or \i switch to the XE field (= index entry
field).

One more question about indexes if I may.

When I create a table of contents or table of Figures, I can Ctrl-click
on an entry in the toc and it will take me to that page.

But as I troubleshoot the index, Ctrl-click does not seem to work that
way. It does nothing. Is there another trick to go to where the Index
says that content is?

Thank you.

Unfortunately, Word does not support hyperlinked indexes. Such a feature
would be very useful, of course.

Especially when exporting to HTML.

Lotus WordPro had that feature, but Word apparently does not.
