After you mark all the words and phrases that you want Word to use as your document's index entries, the process of generating the index is pretty easy.

1

Move the insertion point to the place where you want the index to appear.

The index generally begins on a new page near the end of the document. Press Ctrl+Enter to create a new page if necessary, and click to position the insertion point on the empty page. You might want to add a heading, such as Index, at the top of the page.

2

Open the References tab on the Ribbon and then click the Insert Index button found in the Index group.

The Index dialog box appears.

3

Select the index style that you want from the Formats drop-down list.

As you click the various formats, the Print Preview area shows how the resulting index will appear.
