# IEEE template: help with index words

Relatively new to LaTeX and trying to use IEEE trans template for journals but I have run into a problem.

I do not want to use index terms but I can't seem to get rid of it without causing an error. I believe it is due to \IEEEtitleabstractindextext line but don't know an alternative so please help.

The main code is below. Thanks in advance.

\IEEEtitleabstractindextext{%
\begin{abstract}
The abstract goes here.
\end{abstract}

\begin{IEEEkeywords}
Computer Society, IEEEtran, journal, \LaTeX, paper, template.

\IEEEdisplaynontitleabstractindextext


I suspect you are trying to use \IEEEtitleabstractindextext in a mode which does not allow you to do so. My suggestion is that you either change the document mode or do not use the command.
