    Automatical search for list of names + page numbers

    VMO

      I have a book with 400 pages. I haven't indexed anything, but now I need a name directory with all page numbers for the human names in the book. I have a list of every people names mentioned in the book. Is it possible to automatically search the list of names (about 1500 pieces) in access to add page numbers for each of the names? Because without any automation I would have to search every single word manually one by one and add the page numbers for every instance. For example if I want to know which are the pages that have a name "Michael Jakcson" it would instantly tell me that the name is mentioned in pages 13, 56 and 156.
