Building Indexes from Multiple Documents

You may be called on to create an index that includes entries from multiple documents—for example, chapters in a book, or components of a report created by different individuals. As with tables of contents (covered in Chapter 21), you have two alternatives:

  • You can incorporate each document in a master document, expand all the subdocuments to make them visible in the master document, and then insert your index at the end of the master document. Word searches each subdocument for index entries and incorporates them in an overall index. This approach takes a bit more time to organize up front, but gives you more control over how your documents work together. You can learn more about master documents in Chapter 20, “Master Documents: Control and Share Even the Largest Documents”.
