Indexing with Word

Creating indexes in Word is an interactive process that is part hands-on and part automatic. You create a Word index in three basic stages:

1.
Mark index entries in your document (or create a concordance file, which allows you to mark index entries automatically).

2.
Choose Insert, Reference, Index And Tables, and then click the Index tab to set indexing options, which control the way the index is placed and formatted in your document.

3.
Word then sorts all the index entries in alphabetical order, adds the page numbers, and deletes any repeated entries. Figure 22-1 shows an example of a completed index.

Figure 22-1. Word alphabetizes your entries, subordinates subentries, and adds alphabetic headings.
