I hope this is a simple question with a simple answer. I am using WinEdt and there is a TeX menu with "Make Index" as an option.
I have gone into Execution Modes and found the "MakeIndex" entry, added the executable in MikTeX and (based on the note here tried to add the "-s [name].ist" to the command line.
But the "Make Index" command under the TeX menu item is ghosted, so I cannot run it.
There is also supposed to be a command line option in an Accessories|Run... command, but I don't have a Run command under the Accessories menu item.
Edit: I do have \makeindex in the source and .idx files are generated. I just don't have access to the MakeIndex tool within WinEdt---it is grayed out and the keyboard shortcut does not work.
Edit: I have been able to successfully use the commandline version by clicking Accessories|CommandLine. This ran without any errors.
