Thanks for that link, Richard. You're not beating this subject to death -- more related info, links, and suggestions are better. As far as I know Mr. C has put all his information into one regular Word file, not a master document which apparently consists of multiple files all linked together with pointers to appear as one document when the master doc is opened. I can see that would be a good way to use Word for genealogical work as it would allow separate files consisting of data organized in appropriate ways -- e.g. photos, interviews, anecdotes, birth/marriage/death records and so on. But I don't think that's what Mr. C has done. However, I do note that the link you provided about indexing a master Word document says that the procedure is similar to indexing a regular Word document so perhaps I can find a page at Microsoft describing the Word 2000 regular document indexing feature.

Thanks very much for the info.
