Well spotted Rick,

Serves me right for trying it out on a simple file... I'd forgotten that
behaviour (or lack of it) in generated files.

I guess the other alternative is to not use any other autonumbering in
the rest of the document (just like using Word...)

Hi Rob,

This type of building block:

<$paranumonly[Section]>

does not work in generated files. You will get the closest previous 
autonumber to the index marker instead of any that you specify in square

brackets.

Hi Michael,

It is possible - provided that your section numbers are generated using 
paragraph autonumbering.

First, if you've not already generated an index for the doc, do so.

Then, in the generated index file, view the references pages. There
should 
be a page called IX (with a flow called IX). This page controlls the
sort 
order of the index, and other things like the appearance of index
entries.

One of the paras on the page should be:

<$pagenum>

Change it to:

<$paranumonly[Section]>-<$pagenum>

Where "Section" should be changed to the paragraph tag you are using for

your sections. It's a good idea to use a non-breaking hyphen (esc hyphen
h) 
so that the section and page numbers don't get split in the index.

Regenerate the index and you should get the required X-PP format.

Rob
