I don't understand the ruling that if a person's name is not on the first page of the will that you cannot look for the name on subsequent pages. That ruling contradicts the field helps for both Given Name and Surname, as well as contradicting the second rule in the Project Information tab.

This is what is in the field helps for the names:

"The name is often written more than once on the will. Look through the entire document, and type the most complete version of the name. "

If we are told to look through the entire document to find the most complete version of the name, why is it wrong to index the name only on the page where it is first found, and not on the first page of the will?
