    Index \z switch (Word 2000)

    When I generate an index using Insert > Index and Tables, here's what I get:

    { INDEX c "2" z "1033" }

    Does anyone know what the z switch does? It is not documented in the help.

    z "####" defines the language ID Word uses to generate the index (1033 is English)

    It can get even more confusing.

    In this case 1033 is a Languge ID (English) but 1033 is also a Locale ID (English - US) and a Currency ID (United States)

    For details see TechNet

    Hi Bob:
    I see Tony has given you the answer, but FYI, you can get information on almost all the field switches but going to Insert/Field..., picking the specific field, & the selecting one of the switches.
    Cheers,
