I am trying to compile an index for my collected travelogues. My intention is to have the Main Entry contain the name of a country and the Sub Entry contain a place in that country (eg England/Canterbury). From what I can determine it doesn't seem possible to set a default Main Entry (eg England) and then mark sub-entries (eg Canterbury) so that each time I mark an entry it automatically becomes a sub-entry of the main entry. It seems to me (and I'm probably wrong) that compiling an index for a 124 page document will be very time consuming as I will have to manually enter the main entry and sub-entry each time I want an item to appear as a sub-entry of a main entry.

Does my post make sense? A summary of what I want is:

MAIN ENTRY: England (default so I don't have to keep typing it in)
SUB-ENTRY: Canterbury (entered by Word when I mark it)

I compiled an index for another document some time ago in the same style but can't remember what I did.
