    Word 2000 TOC & Indexes (2000 Professional Standard)

    How can I create a TOC and Index in a document seperate from the main documents? I have the TOC fields and the Index fields in the main documents but I need to have the TOC and Index seperate.

    Thanks in advance.

    In the document where you want the TOC and Index, insert an RD field that refers to the main document:
    <UL><LI>Press Ctrl+F9 to insert field brackets { } (don't type them yourself)
    <LI>Type RD followed by a space.
    <LI>Type the name of the main document.
    <UL><LI>If it is in a different folder, include the path, doubling backslashes.
    <LI>If the filename and/or path contains spaces, enclose it in quotes[/list]<LI>Press F9 to update.
    <LI>Now insert a TOC and/or Index the usual way.[/list]Examples:

    { RD Main.doc }

    { RD "Cocuments and SettingsShineALiteMy DocumentsMain.doc" }

    Thank you so much! WOW!! You saved me a lot of time. I had read about RD in the help but it doesn't explain it well at all!
    Thanks again.

    Spoke too soon! I saved and then later in the day opened the file and tried to F9 and now it get "Error! Cannot open file referenced on page i

    Error! Cannot open file referenced on page 1

    This is what I have typed. All the documents are saved in the same folder.

    {RD Appetizers.doc}

    Hmm, it works OK for me after closing and reopening the document. Does it help if you add the f switch:

    { RD Appetizers.doc f }

    If that doesn't work, you'll probably have to use the full path, with backslashes doubled.
