Troubleshooting

Updating Index Entries

Q1:After inserting the index, I edited the entries by directly typing over them within the index itself. But when I updated the index, all those edits were lost.
A1: Always make changes to the index entries in the body of the document—that is, change the contents of the {xe} fields themselves. That way, when you update the index (or table of contents), your changes will be reflected in the new index.

Spell-Checking an Index

Q1:Even though I spell-checked my index, there are still spelling errors in the index.
A1: Index entries—that is, {xe} fields—normally are hidden. Word doesn't check hidden text when you run a spell-check. To spell-check your index entries, first display hidden characters (choose Tools, Options, click the View Tab, and check the Hidden Text box). Next, run the spell-check. Misspelled words in {xe} fields will appear with a red squiggly underline.
