Create street index in ArcGIS 10 beta

Do I have the tools to do this in the beta version? I thought it is possible in "Data Driven Pages". If not can I use DS Map Book tool in the beta 10 version?

Mapping Center Answer:

There is no function in ArcGIS 10 with the data driven pages for creating a street map index.  The DSMapBook functionality did not have this capability either.  We wrote a blog entry some time ago called, Creating Street Map Indexes, that explains how you can use the data that underpins your map series to create an index.  By that I mean the method explained in that blog entry can be applied to a single map sheet or a series of maps.
