    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    Ah, no free lunch. That figures .... Hey, are you saying that AI (Artificial Intelligence) is a forlorn hope_fear? I love the succinct phrases you use. Just for the record, I came across this site - https://docs.marklogic.com/guide/concepts/indexing#id_40941 Those guys haven't given up...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    MajP - I had a quick look at RAKE, it is intriguing, trying to extract sense/meaning out of "found word" combinations, by means of algorhythms or similar. The example given seems to work satisfactorily but the proof will be in the practical end result. I wish you well in applying RAKE to...

    Hi MajP I'll go with Index Generator for the time being. I've donated a bit to the makers of it. It looks easy to use and somewhat intuitive. It'll do me. thank you muchly for bringing it to attention. It does have one feature that enables easy groupings of user-selected words and...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    MajP - been occupied with "other stuff", sorry for delay in replying. You've been very helpful, thank you. Now, I've downloaded trial version of Textract (great name for program) and am tinkering a bit with it. I'm thinking maybe I could/should use the Pro SP (Pro single project) option...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    MajP -- "So maybe I can use the found words to aid in finding the real terms, but a pure list of words is of little value."- your comment. Agreed. but lets go the further step: I have a simple search routine in my MS Access database & book writer that connects any two "searched for"/"found"...

    Hi MajP Thanks for showing me this trick! Can I do this in about 3 hours time as I am looking after my grandkids right now and about to have dinner with them, hope that's OK, I'm really looking forward to the session (hopefully it won't be too late for you by then?) otherwise can we make it...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    arnelgp, thank you for your helpful thoughtful comments. I need now to just see what word can do with my exported MS Word text file(s), in the light of whatever your suggested sites and people come up with. I also want to pursue understanding of MajP's very cool creation. I also need to study...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    Wow, this is so logical and good. I agree with "fast" and "most of it done, do the rest via fine tuning, deleting, etc". You know it is a pleasure to see (my) vague and formless ideas come into fruition, via savant adaptation of "idea" -----------> "useful REALITY". I just can't believe...

    MajP - I seriously don't know how to express my appreciation of what you've posted. My mind is genuinely blown away. Dumb is good, but it don't look dumb to me .... And as I haven't yet replied to Uncle gizmo re his post I won't go too overboard in my praise for you, in case his routines...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    Hi CJ_London the way my bookwriter works, I don't ever identify a page number in the data base, but it does show when I produce an interim (or final) report. Yes, that's a problem for an index (clearly!). As I explained to arnelgp, the way around that is to export the report (= all & every...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    arnelgp unfortunately, my MS Access book record(s) do not go by page, they go by (see my post to Uncle Gizmo, to see the database structure). But it's OK, I am investigating (as someone suggested here) the MS Word options, also a program called Sigil (which I use to make eBooks). From the...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    MajP like minds, we are. I will have a look at your zip files in a while. I'd be happy with an 85% result and yes I know there's manual work needed to fine tune any/the list. I've posted a bit more detail of my Access book structure & reports, and that I can export text file to MS Word...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    Uncle Gizmo - thanks for that suggestion, I now see (by fiddling) that my MS Access book reports (which I produce as pdf) can be exported beautifully from Access as MS Word text files and I note that MS Word does have a sort of index producing facility (which I knew anyway) which I could use...

    word index creator code would be good: possible?

    Hi everyone I'm in MS Access 2007. I use RTF fields to create non-fiction books/stories. I would like ideas, and preferably also a whole VBA code to be able to create a routine (for each book/story I write) that creates a purpose built index, just like many books have as of course you would...

    create text box showing how many characters remain during input to form's text box

    Thanks a million Arnelgp, you are a genius. I just love your routine, which I've "upped" from 100 to 255 characters, as is text field size limit. I will try and incorporate it into each of my input fields on that form, via "on change event ..... call .... your routine" (I think that is what...

    create text box showing how many characters remain during input to form's text box

    Hi DBguy - sounds good. I think that's what I could use with the routine that Arnelgp has suggested in his post (which is sublime in its simplicity, and which is btw the essence of genius ....) EdK
