You can produce an index of individuals mentioned in a Journal type report. The easiest way is to send the report to an RTF (rich text format) file and open it in Word or a limited set of WordPerfect (some versions did not handle rtf files very well - I use WP 6.1, which does a pretty good job of loading the rtf file which I then transfer to a later version). Then you use the word processor's index creation features to produce an index. A major advantage of using a word processor is that you can do significant edits on the report and just rebuild the index to get the output right. I often combine several Journal reports and produce a single index for them all.
You can even add index tags in text fields: type in the individual number, highlight the number with your cursor, and click on the "Name Index" button at the bottom of the text window. (That produces an entry in the text that looks like "[NI:1234:NI]".)
There are various formats of the name index entries: I always add the birth-death years to the names so that I can tell individuals apart who have the same names.
There is also a "Place Index" button on the text windows, but I have never tried that. I also think there is a way to produce an index when printing directly from UFT, but since I often want to edit my report after UFT has produced it, I don't go that route.
