    footnote characters in doc? (Word 2002 XP SR3)

    a user called me about a large Word document. In the latest version of the document there appears to be footnotes before the word and after the word “ecognize” . This is occurring throughout the document. These numbers aren’t footnotes in a normal style.

    I’ve gone through older versions of the document. Another version displays another character before and after words.

    I’ve gone back through the versions until I found a clean doc. In the clean doc:

    at “181” the actual word is “summarised”
    at “184” the actual word is “emphasising”

    There’s nothing unusual about these paragraphs.
    The style is “Normal”.
    There are no footnotes set at these paragraphs

    This document was corrupt and repaired

    Has anyone seen anything similar to this? This one has got me stumped <img src=/S/confused.gif border=0 alt=confused width=15 height=20>

    Any ideas?

    Many thanks diana

    It would be wise to create a fresh document and transfer the valid content into it, and treat the recovered document as historical material. As for why the corruption occurred or the repair did not completely recover the original text, that's very difficult to guess.

    Thanks Jefferson

    Yes it is hard to tell. I thought that it maybe possible that someone out there may have seen something similiar in their "Word travels"
