Sue, Sorry to give you some bad news, but the _direct_ index report with this software has been driving everyone nuts since day one. Back some time ago the programers gave up and installed a method to edit the direct index report. So editing the index is the only way to do what you want if printing direct. And if you have a large index it is not much fun. As you may have found, you can only send a 4 generation chart to a file.
