    Index marks in TOC (97)

    When I am writing documents, I normally add a TOC and a list of figures at the top of my document.
    What I sometimes also want is to create an Index. I use a concordance-file to AutoMark all entries in my document.
    Here's what happens <img src=/S/sad.gif border=0 alt=sad width=15 height=15>:
    Once I start the AutoMark function (Index), <font color=red>it also marks all my references in the TOC and list of figures</font color=red> <img src=/S/mad.gif border=0 alt=mad width=15 height=15>.
    That's obviously and absolutely NOT what I want... anybody out there how knows what is going on here and has a clue how I can avoid this?

    Thanks,

    Erik Jan

    Does the automarked content in the TOC/TOF fields persist after an update field command?

    No, they disappear <img src=/S/blush.gif border=0 alt=blush width=15 height=15>.

    Sorry, I should have tested that first of course.... <img src=/S/oink.gif border=0 alt=oink width=15 height=15>

    Re: Index marks in TOC (97)

    I'm not quite there yet, here's one that fits under this same subject:
    Now I've auto-marked (using my concordance-file) all entries for the index but discover that I need to make some changes to the index file. That only ADDS indices.... it doesn't remove already marked sections (even if these do no longer appear in the conc. index file).
    Is there a simple VBA routine (I'm using Word 97) and/or search & replace that allows me to delete all index-entries ({XE...}) so I can start fresh?

    Thanks,

    Erik Jan

    1. Edit / Replace
    2. Find what ^d xe
    3. Replace with blank
    4. Replace All

    Then repeat 2-4 with no space between ^dxe

    That should zap them all

    Hi Erik,

    If you want to know why the TOC was marked, the entries in the concordance are case sensitive. So if the entry in the concordance is in the same case as the text in the document then it will be marked.
