          Are you trying to create a hyperlink, or a cross-reference?


          Are you creating the index by hand, or are you using ID's indexing feature?


          What version of ID is this for?

            yes hyperlink for page numbers.


            For Example:



            Paine, Thomas, 34, 143

            paper money, 94, 100, 101

            Parliamentary system, 105–108, 195

            Patriot Act, 88, 116, 220


            This is index text, we need web pdf, there is linked all page numbers to related pages

              Hi Srikanth,

              It sounds like maybe you are new to scripting (as you have not posted any code to show what you've tried so far)

              If you generate the index using InDesign's indexing feature, the hyperlinks are created automatically.

              If you create the index by hand, you're making life hard for yourself.

              Perhaps you would be better off regenerating the index with an indexing script — like Marc Autret's Indexmatic
