Part VII: Handling Large Documents > Creating Indexes and Tables of Contents

Chapter 31. Creating Indexes and Tables of Contents

  • Create, format, and edit index entries

    Word 97 makes it easy to create simple as well as complex indexes containing multiple-level entries and cross-references.

  • Use a concordance file to automatically create index entries

    You can use a concordance file to quickly and easily create index entries in long documents.

  • Create and format a table of contents

    Word's table of contents generator maintains simplicity while providing you with powerful tools that let you include text as well as headings in a table of contents.

  • Create and format a table of authorities

    Legal users will benefit from Word's easy-to-use table of authorities feature.

  • Create tables based on figures, captions, and other items

    Among other things, you can create tables of figures, graphs, and equations so readers can easily locate these items in your documents.

This chapter shows you how to build references for documents, to make them easy for people to use. Imagine trying to locate a specific topic in a long reference book with no table of contents, trying to get information from a long technical document without a good index, or trying to remember where you saw a useful chart or table in a book with no list of figures. Word 97 is equipped with powerful tools for creating these reference aids.
