    Mark text for non-indexing (2000)

    Hi -- is it possible to mark text in a document (e.g. a specific paragraph or section) so that it will not be indexed, i.e. be skipped by the routine that marks all instances of a term for the index?

    Any hints welcome,
    Best, JMW

    Jeroen,

    Perhaps somebody else will come up with a real answer. I don't know of a way to do what you want, but you can do it the other way round: first generate the index entries from the concordance file, then select the paragraph or section and remove all index entries from it using Edit/Replace...: enter "^d XE" (without the quotes) in the find box, and clear the replace box; click Replace All and answer No when Word asks if it should continue outside the selection. The ^d indicates that you are looking for a field, and XE is the field code for an index entry.

    Hi Hans,

    thanks a lot for the work-around. <img src=/S/cheers.gif border=0 alt=cheers width=30 height=16>
    Still I think a lot of indexers would be helped with a "real solution" <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15> .
    I was just thinking this might involve replacing the Word-native "Mark-all" routine
    with one's own VBA routine, in which paragraphs or sections that are marked
    as, say, "NoProofing" are skipped.
    Sounds like a nice little project for VBA 101 <img src=/S/smile.gif border=0 alt=smile width=15 height=15>.

    Best, Jeroen
