You'd think that after gently chiding Susan for having "changed the
subject completely," I'd remember to change the subject line of my
reply, wouldn't you? Sorry! Here it is for the archives.

Then the FM file or book for which you generated the list or index
doesn't contain any graphics imported by reference. FM doesn't know the
file path and name of graphics copied into the document (there's no
point).

Do you mean that within a single FM file, not a book, you selected
Special > List of > Figures? OK, then in the Set Up List of Figures
dialog, you had to select the paragraphs to include (your figure
captions). 

But now you've changed the subject completely. Lists of figures, tables,
etc., are lists of paragraphs in FM. That's very different from a list
of imported graphics, fonts, text insets, or other references.

to include.

I don't understand.

What is it that you can't do with (from the book window) Add > List of >
Figures or Add > List of > Paragraphs (Alphabetical)?

I don't understand. But again, List of > Paragraphs (Alphabetical) will
give you alpha lists of whatever paragraph format(s) you want (like
Head1, Head2, ...). 

I don't know what a WI number is, but maybe if you spend some quality
time with the generated lists topics in the help or user manual, you can
figure out how to do something with that, too. FM's generated lists
functionality is pretty robust and versatile.

HTH!
