Unwanted special characters in Register Index
Posted by: C Garrason (ID *****7875) Date: May 03, 2009 at 08:12:26

I use PAF and Companion and prepare Register format reports for WordPerfect. The Index is NOT compiled by Companion which is good but is left for me to do that in WP after I have done the editing.

I never change an index entry created by Companion but the compiled Index often, but not always, has a special character following the name. It can be almost any printable punctuation from comma to ampersand. If the report is for someone special I then have to do a search and delete in WP to remove these characters. That's a separate search for each special character I find.

My version of WP (X3) is much more advanced than that for which Companion was written but I don't see why that should effect this.

Any ideas? Thanks!
