I am pretty confused right now. I am trying to crank out the index for a Word
6 file that a colleague created using Doc-To-Help 1.6. This file is about 70
long, includes graphics, and has about 130 index entries. When initiated, it
to do its thing, but then it completely slows down after 4 or 5 index entries
have been processed. It then decides that it's tired and I receive that fun
"Word has insufficient memory, you will not be able to undo" error message.
a few of these (it takes 2 hours or so), the system then informs me that my
is "Out of memory while indexing." Crud. (BTW, I checked my colleague's work,
it appears to me that she has properly entered her index tags. I removed all but
two tags, and it ran successfully, albeit *very* slowly.)

Has anyone used the Doc-To-Help indexing feature? If so, how long did it take
to produce yours? I have contacted Doc-To-Help, and I will probably receive an
impersonal fax with suggestions. I'm curious to find out what is considered the
normal time span for processing an index with this tool.

Thanks for reading,
