Tom- Yes, it was a good exercise, and now you have a rudimentary Place index to use as a checkoff list as you collect your index in WP 6.1. And yes, you are correct in stating that deselecting "Print to File" should disable the selection of the importing Word Processor programs.
However, some strange things can happen on that menu, and I wanted to err on the safe side, which is why I made the suggestion I did. If you had MSWord instead of WP6.1, you would have access to a few more options, both with "Automatic Launch" selected and without. But you still couldn't get an RTF export of the Place Index.
A third option you might try if you don't want to collect your own Index is to try to get a prn file to export to file, but I do not know if that can be done in UFT 3.0.
A fourth oprion is to either get Version 10 of Wordperfect or download PDF995 (PDF editor also) from pdf995.com and use Ghostscript to extract the text from your PDF printer output.
But then you will still have to use your WP 6.1 to import Reports, because UFT 3.0 doesn't work properly with later versions of WP, unless you have MSWord.
