A collection of Index objects that represents all the indexes in the specified document.

Use the Indexes property to return the Indexes collection. The following example formats indexes in the active document with the classic format.

ActiveDocument.Indexes.Format = wdIndexClassic

Use the Add method to create an index and add it to the Indexes collection. The following example creates an index at the end of the active document.

Set myRange = ActiveDocument.Content 
myRange.Collapse Direction:=wdCollapseEnd 
ActiveDocument.Indexes.Add Range:=myRange, Type:=wdIndexRunin

Use Indexes(Index), where Index is the index number, to return a single Index object. The index number represents the position of the Index object in the document. The following example updates the first index in the active document.

If ActiveDocument.Indexes.Count >= 1 Then 
End If
