Re: Index not included in Report Printed to File

John, I understand the first part of your reply. I'm using MS Word which automatically opens the RTF document. From reading the help instructions, I see that I can manually construct an index from the doucument. However, this could be tedious for lengthly files of several hundred pages.

A cousin recently sent me a family RTF file prepared from Family Tree Maker 7.0, which similarly lacked an index. She did send me an index by mail. But since the font of the index was different that the font used by my MS Word processor, the page citations were in error. I have almost licked this problem by reprinting the RTF document in other fonts. To manually create an index with this document with over 600 names would be tedious. I'm wondering if the index could be hidden in the original RTF file which I have saved?

With respect to my original question, if the index is there in the RTF, but hidden, can it be accessed?
