I am confused by your question about the XE codes. TMG Utility deals only with
TMG data, and in this case, the Find and Replace feature will be processing
Event Memos. The TMG form of the index entries is "[INDEX:] ... [:INDEX]"; when
you run report, TMG converts the "[INDEX:] ... [:INDEX]" text into the proper
index entry for the word processor you use. MS Word uses the XE codes, but that
doesn't matter to TMG Utility: after you run the report in TMG there is nothing
that TMG Utility can do for you.
Given that I reversed the change you want to make (I said change "People" to
"Names", but you want to change "Names" to "People"), here's what I suggest. I
forget the exact names of the fields in the Find and Replace dialog, but here's
the gist of it:
Old text: [INDEX:]Names:
New text: [INDEX:]People:
That change is specific enough that it's unlikely you'll change any random uses
of those same strings that are part of memos but aren't index entries.
Hope this helps, but I won't be surprised if it doesn't! I can't seem to explain
myself anymore. Maybe I need a tuneup or an oil change.
