Default creating an Index for a long book using Word


I've prepared a long book--600 pages or so--and am now attempting to create an Index, using Word 2007 on a Vista platform. When I use References/Mark Entry, after highlighting a word to be indexed, Word inserts a bracketed entry directly after that highlighted word that repeats within the brackets that highlighted word along with the annotation "XE" placed before the highlighted word. Seems harmless enough...but in the course of a long work, all those many bracketed entries add up, adding quite a few pages to the file. Hence the page numbers of the Index entries are incorrect. I haven't been able to find out how to turn off those bracketed entries. This is obviously a deal-killer for anyone working with Word in a long publication....so my take on that is that I am obviously missing something!!
Can anyone clue me in on how to make an Index without inserting these unnecessary bracketed words?
Thanks, and happy New Year.
