Creating an Index Automatically in a Word Template

  • 1.  Creating an Index Automatically in a Word Template

    Posted 02-01-2017 13:05
    Does anyone have any experience creating an Index using the Jama Word template?  I'm trying to create a series of indexed works comprised of all headers which I can then use to create in Index on the last page.  

    2 Issues I seem to be facing:
    1.  The index, even though I put it on the last page always shows up right after the table of contents. 
    2. The XE tag does not seem to take, so headers are not getting indexed.

    Hi Henry,

    As far as #1 goes, this is expected behavior—you cannot determine placement of content using Word templates. For #2, this isn't something we support—I found some older support tickets where customers tried to make this work, and we always recommended they pursue either BIRT or Velocity and create an advanced report. This isn't to say it's impossible, but we don't support it and we have never been successfully in making it work.
