An index lists the terms and topics

An index lists the terms and topics.

The ones that are discussed in a document, along with the pages that they appear on.

To create an index, you mark the index entries by providing the name of the main entry and the cross-reference in your document, and then you build the index.

You can create an index entry:

       For an individual word, phrase, or symbol
       For a topic that spans a range of pages
       That refers to another entry, such as "Transportation.

When you select text and mark it as an index entry, Microsoft Office Word adds a special XE (Index Entry) field that includes the marked main entry and any cross-reference information that you choose to include.

After you mark all the index entries, you choose an index design and build the finished index. Word collects the index entries, sorts them alphabetically, references their page numbers, finds and removes duplicate entries from the same page, and displays the index in the document.

I use Word 2007.
