Each of the 1500 pages has been indexed.  I would like to print out the index or copy it into an Excel file.

It's been years since I've created an Index in Acrobat, but what it does is creates an index of all of the words in your document(s) so that you can do a faster search. You choose the folders where the documents are and all those words will be in the Index.

You can also add words you don't want in the index, such as "and, a, the". Click the Stop Words button to see what's not included. Everything else is.

Acrobat has a function called indexing.  When you select index on the Acrobat menu, it evidently reads all the words on each page and creates an index so that when you search a file, you put in, for example a person's name, and it goes immediately to the pages that has that  person's name.

Ok, thanks. There is no way to see, read or print the index.

It is still the case.  There is no way to see, read or print the index.
