How does one create an Index?
Tips and Tricks


I have a 200 page book that is mostly text. I’d like to add an index, but I’d like some help. For example (If I remember correctly.) LATEX will scan the material and give you a table in which all the words are listed with their frequency of occurance. Then you edit the list (Removing stuff you don’t want, like articles, conjunctions, prepositions, etc.) and run it again to put it into alphebetical order and add the page numbers.  Can one do this in WORD? If so how to get the BLURB text into WORD? Anyway, can someone help with this?
