I am trying to make two different indexes with multind.sty. I have 
already understood the classical process to make one index. I am 
writing a script like this :

%The name of the file is index_essay.tex
Roosevelt\index{persons}{Roosevelt} and 
Stalin\index{persons}{Roosevelt} were at Yalta\index{events}{Yalta 
Conference}, but not De Gaulle\index{persons}{De Gaulle}.

I am compiling one time in Latex mode and TeXShop creates two files 
persons.idx and events.idx. OK.
A second time in mode MakeIndex, I have this error message in the 
console :

Couldn't find input index file index_essay nor index_essay.idx.
Usage: makeindex [-ilqrcg] [-s sty] [-o ind] [-t log] [-p num] [idx0 
idx1 ...]

Why does it seek this file index_essay.idx and not persons.idx and 

Thank you for your assistance and sorry for my English.
