If Len(Selection.Text) > 1 Then

SelectedText = UCase(Left(Selection.Text, 1)) & LCase(Right(Selection.Text, Len(Selection.Text) - 1))

ActiveDocument.Indexes.MarkEntry(Range:=Selection.Range, Entry:=SelectedText, _

EntryAutoText:=SelectedText, CrossReference:="", CrossReferenceAutoText:="", _

BookmarkName:="", Bold:=False, Italic:=False)


idexmsg = MsgBox("Please select the text and use this command!!", vbCritical, "CE Indexer")
