Index in Word

  TN 08:50 30 May 2007

My wife has compiled a recipe book for her own use but as there are over 150 recipes in it she asked me if I could print out a list of the recipes with the page numbers. She has numbered each page so that part is no problem. Is there any EASY way to make up an Index with this aim in mind. I tried the Help file on word for 'Index' but could not follow the very involved instructions. Any help wopuld be appreciated by yours truly. BTW I am using Word 2003.

I agree but I was thinking of some way that I could tag each title and Word would Index it with page numbers automatically. If the worst comes to the worst and there is no method I realise I'll have to go though each of the 150 recipes, put them in alphabetical order and show the page number for each - it WILL take a few hours to do this (at least for me using 2 fingers!!)

Try "Table Of Contents" in the Word Help File.

As the title of the dish rarely helps.

Why not Index by Type.

Meat, Fish, Fruit & Veg.


Soup, Starter, Main, Sweet & Baking.


Sweet or Savoury

And then become Alphabetical in each section
