Exclamation Dynamic Index for Mergefields

In a mail merge, I need to create an index based on a Mergefield. When I try this, I get an index with every page listed and the MERGEFIED rather than the field contents which generated in the mail merge. Is there a way to create an index based on a mail merge field rather than static text? I have searched multiple sites, but they all say to stick with the Reference-Mark Entry (in the Index section of the Reference tab) standard formatting which does not work.

The current content looks like this:
{ XE "\Object_Name_Level_2\" } { MERGEFIELD Object_Name_Level_2 }

Where the { XE "\Object_Name_Level_2\" } is the hidden text index tag. I tried editing this to show as the following:
{ XE "\{ MERGEFIELD Object_Name_Level_2 }\" } { MERGEFIELD Object_Name_Level_2 }

That did not work either...

I am creating this mail merge which is run against a SQL database in RSA Archer. We have created other mail merge documents which run beautifully, but this our first attempt at creating an index. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
