Indexing Help Needed

Indexing Help Needed

Indexing Help Needed

1. System = Windows XP; 512 mg. ram, mucho storage....

2. Have a 30 page document. First 7 text, single column...
Starting page 11 - 14 is 3 col. text listing the name of medical service,  name of service provider, Dr. Name, Address, City, Phone #'s and  hours. Each line has a SPECIFICLY named (7) style sheets. NO duplicates.

Bryant, Kevin DO
PCP# AK2425
92675 N Colorado
Dallas, TX 75218
Phone: (209)986-4452
Hours/Horario: M-F 8:30-5:30 Sa 8:30-12:30
Languages: Spanish, Punjabi, Hindi/Indian, Urdu

3. This data was extracted from MS Access data files, sorted by  medical service type etc. Makes 4 pages. All markup was inserted  (style sheets) for each line into text file. The text file was imported into  Quark.. with the Get Text command.  All works/looks great.

4. Down to page 20 - 21 which is an INDEX.
I created another file - sorted with MS Access that has the Medical  Service Specialty line, i.e. Cardiologia Pediatrica - then any additional  lines with Dr. names and medical degree. Each line has a SPECIFICLY  named style sheet. NO duplicates.

Cardiologia Pediatrica
Agarwal, Poonam – MD
Akbar, Saleem – MD

5. What I want to do is create an INDEX on page 20 that matches the Dr.  Names on pages 11 - 14 and inserts relative page # at end of Dr. Name  line on page 20 - 21.

All Dr. Names on pages 11 - 14 and pages 20 - 21 are spelled exactly  the same. (came from the same data file)

6. Selected Edit>Preference>Index. Entered following into "Between Page Range:" 11-14.

7. Then do the Ctrl-Alt I choice and the index box pops up.
Clicked a couple names from page 20 text and got them to show up in the index.
and that's about it...

I would like to have a reference to a page # 11, 12, 13 or 14 appear after Dr. names below... on page #20. I have no problem creating tabs in style sheets etc.

(3) Specifically named (different than above) style sheets.
Cardiologia Pediatrica
Agarwal, Poonam – MD - - - - -12
Akbar, Saleem – MD - - - - - -11

8. Appreciate any/all help.  I have consulted the Quark Help PDF file plus read about lists and indexes in another publication. For sure I'm missing something. WHAT IS IT?


RE: Indexing Help Needed

    I am using QuarkXPress 6.5 on the Mac with OS 10.4.7.
    I go under Window, Show Index.
    Then go to the page with Doctor's name and highlight name.
    The name will then appear in the Index area. You then click add.
    Do this with all Names and when you finish go under Utilities and click build Index, that should add an Index page at the end of the document, which you can then if you wish select the text and format as you want. Also you may then have to manually insert the page or pages as pages 20-21 or where ever  you want them.
    It looks like you will have to manually add the tabs if you want the page number tabbed to the right.
    I have never used this feature before but it seems to be quicker than typing up the index manually.
Hope this helps.
