Has anyone hared of a good interactive indexing program that works
with MS-Word? We are now using MS-Word for Windows Re. 6.0a.
We would like to have the ability to a) automatically scan the text
for a string and insert an index tag at each mention (with confirm!),
and b) edit tags from the index.
Has anyone used such a product, or does anyone know of such a product?
We were inspired by the ease of user of RoboHelp in inserting hypertext
links, and thought, "Wait a second, there should be one of these tools
for generating indexes!"
