Do you use page ranges in indexes?

I have indexed for several years in Word, but have never bothered with page

I realized indexing should have page ranges.

I am now using Frame and doing page ranges in Frame seems very laborious,
even with the IXGen indexing plug-in. It doubles or triples the effort,
because the entries are so hard to review.

I wonder how many other people choose do to an index without page ranges.
I'd rather see a good index without ranges than a poor index with them or no
index at all.
