Subject: [texhax] An Index Package Question

I am finishing a book and like to have the bibliography indexed.

It seems that the way to go is to use the Index package to create a 
separate index for the bibliography items.

I think I have followed the instructions in the documentation and the 
package is loaded,
but my new index will not print, although I receive no error messages 
and the original index prints without a problem.

The relevant material from my file, I think, is listed below.

Standard index items are flagged in the form

\index{Gaussian Quadrature}

and a bibliographic item such as [Ab] is flagged in the form


Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

You need to process your MyBook.tex
With makeindex 

Here is the Windows batch file I use to do this:

- - - TeXprocThisFile.bat - - -
set filename=Fehd-chap-SetUp-Autoexec
call pdfLaTeX  %filename%
call pdfLaTeX  %filename%
call pdfLaTeX  %filename%
call   bibTeX  %filename%
call makeindex %filename%
call pdfLaTeX  %filename%
call pdfLaTeX  %filename%
call pdfLaTeX  %filename%

yeah, overkill, but the pages numbers are correct!
I am sure others will suggest texify

Be sure to check the makeindex log
