How is the index of a book created?

    Is there software available by the book publisher that allows the person to do this? Basically, a keyword search that automatically returns the page number of any inputted page, and then outputs that keyword to a page that has the index file?

    In Microsoft Word this creates an index: menus: Insert/Reference/Index and Tables.
    The macro language (visual basic) embedded in Microsoft Word allows to do such things and many others in a very simple way for special purpose, very powerful.

    Word Perfect 5.1 does it as well. That's what I used to use years ago.
