Updating an Index

You can update an index at any time by clicking it and pressing F9. This means that after you look at the compiled index, you can go back into the document and add entries you missed. The index is updated, and the choices you made in the Index And Tables dialog box are preserved.

Note

If you’ve made any formatting changes, such as selecting a different format style or changing from Indented to Run-In style, Word asks whether you want to replace the existing index with the new one. If you haven’t made any editing changes in the current index—or you’re willing to re-enter the changes you’ve made—select Yes. Word replaces the existing index with the new, updated one, and you’ll need to re-enter those edits. If you select Cancel, the operation is canceled and your changes are not made.
