I have a responsibility list for a project, created as a numbered list. For example, 1 is web site, 1.a is Web site>Content, and 1.a.i is web site>Content>photography. The name of the person responsible for each sub-item appears in parens at the end of the appropriate item.

This is a large project, with 10 team members and lots of activity. To make it easier for each team member to see his responsibility at a glance, I would like to create an index which shows the name of the person and each item (either the complete text or 1.a.i) they are responsible for.

Indexing and cross referencing each seem to do half of what I want. I can't get the index to show any more detail than page number, which is better than nothing, I guess. Cross referencing lets me quote exact text (perfect!) but I don't seem to be able to create multiple cross references for one name.

Any ideas?

Write your list in Excel, not Word. Column 1 is the ID, column 2 is the description, column 3 is the name of the person responsible. Use an autofilter function on the database, then you can just select the rows with a particular person's name on.
