Richard, Thank you for the detailed information. I will work with them this afternoon.

Then the FM file or book for which you generated the list or index doesn't contain any graphics imported by reference.

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. > That worked great, I got the list. > 1. Now, how do I alphabatize them.

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! Richard Richard G.
