You haven't said what the problem is, only that you can't get the
Glossary or Index to work? In what way aren't they working?

I'm going to guess at the problem. Perhaps you mean that the page number
prefix (G or I) isn't appearing in the page number?

That may be because these headings and page number prefixes were created
manually (typed text), not by autonumber. In that case, the prefix would
appear in the TOC entry as part of the heading text, but the prefix
would not appear in the TOC as part of the page number. You need to have
actual autonumbers (or SEQ fields) as page number prefixes, not text.

Or perhaps the Glossary and Index headings just aren't appearing in the
TOC? Maybe these headings were created using a different heading level
to allow use of a different autonumber sequence. You might have to edit
the field code of your TOC to include other heading levels formatted as
TOC1. If you read the online Help on the TOC field, you should be able
to figure out what to change.

Re the index: AFAIK there is simply no way to convert a Word index into
hyperlinked bookmarks in a PDF. Perhaps there's an add-on package, but
it's simply not possible with the standard Acrobat PDFMaker or Acrobat
Distiller or the Acrobat PDF print driver.
