Re: Variable possible in index marker?--THANKS!

WOW!!! IXgen made it so EASY! With the overview directions from Fred and
Richard, I was able to make all those changes in just seconds! (with crimson
face, vowing I will use IXgen from now on)

Thanks to all for their good advice on the other plug-ins, too. They are
definitely worth looking into.

What a great list!

If you have the IXgen plug-in, you can generate an editable list 
of the index markers, do a global Find/Change there, and apply 
the changes back to the original markers. it's quick and easy.

This is just one of the highly useful features of the excellent 
IXgen tool, which I think is probably the most universally loved
of all FrameMaker plug-ins. And no, I don't have a connection 
to the vendor, other than being a very satisfied customer.

You can't put a variable in the marker text, but you can semi-automate
such changes by using IXGen (http://www.fsatools.com/). 

With IXGen, you can generate a list of all the index markers and their
text. Then, you can use Find/Replace to change all the date strings.
Finally, you click a button to "reapply" the edited marker list to the
doc from which it was generated. This way, you're updating the marker
text, not the generated index.
