Hi, it is a shareware program called EZIndex by John V Holder – you should
be able to find it on the net which is where I got it from – cost US$30.
I have only used the databaser and index maker but this is what it is all
about – quote:
 
EZIndex is two software tools, corresponding to the two steps of creating a
high-quality index:
 
Step 1: EZIndex. This control panel lets you generate a list of terms as you
read your electronic manuscript. The touch of a hotkey grabs pieces of text
for indexing. As you go, you can define entries or sub-entries for terms
that don’t necessarily appear in the text, too.  EZIindex then saves this
information, with page numbers, to a file.
 
If you’re working from printed pages, you may prefer to use EZIndex
Databaser, which lets you create index entries with as little typing as
possible.
 
Step 2: EZIndex Maker. Just drag the resulting EZIndex file onto this
application. In seconds, your fully formatted index – complete with indented
sub-entries, collated page numbers (“34-40”), and commas – is ready to
publish!
