Creating and Modifying an Index

An index typically appears at the end of a document and alphabetically lists the main topics, names, and terms used in a document, along with the page numbers where they’re found. The items in the list are called index entries. You can create an index entry for a word, phrase, or topic that appears on a single page or is discussed for several pages. An index entry can have related subentries. For example, the main index entry lawn might have below it the subentries installing, maintaining, and mowing. An index might also include cross-reference entries that direct readers to related entries. For example, the main index entry lawn might have below it a cross-reference to grasses.
