I have a document and the index was created by importing word docs with indexentries. Now the client wants to revise the book and wants the text converted back to Word, but he wants to keep the orginal word index codes. Is that possible? Exporting as tagged text results in showing the index codes, but also much other codes which are not needed.
Would be greatfuull for some tips, or preferable a script that does the trick.

Don't think there is one to do this but if there is will be good to have.

What were you going to do with this Tagged Text file? That's only good for re-importing it back into InDesign.
Anyway, it doesn't require a script at all. I had the clever idea of testing this, and indeed: index entries in InDesign are exported in RTF.
Thanx, you are right of course. In Word i did not see codes, but reimporting
shows them. Thanx!
