Creating a Table of Contents can be easy if you use Styles. Word will automatically insert a TOC when you place the insertion point and then use Insert>Reference Index and Tables and choose Table of Contents.
(2007+ Reference Tab>Table of Contents group)
An Index or Concordance can be more difficult.
In a larger document, you may want the reader to be able to locate key words. You could go through the whole document and mark each word you want included, but there is an easier way.
- Make a list of the important words.
- Create a two-column table in a new document.
- In the first column, enter the word or phrase.
- In the second column, enter the index entry
(If you need a sub-category, type the main entry followed by a colon (:) and then the sub category.)
- Save the file.
