    That Footnote *space* (Word 97SR2)

    This thread makes a careful distinction between a period and a space in the footnote.

    What I want to know is this: can that ubiquitous *space* after the footnote number be permanently removed?

    Other than by using Backspace? <img src=/S/grin.gif border=0 alt=grin width=15 height=15>

    I think you might have to replace the InsertFootnote command with a macro.

    If you put the following macro in your Normal.dot, it will take over the built-in command:

    Sub InsertFootnote()
    ActiveDocument.Footnotes.Add Range:=Selection.Range
    With Selection
    .Paragraphs(1).Range.Characters(2) = ""
    ' If you want a tab after the footnote number,
    ' uncomment the next line.
    ' .InsertAfter vbTab
    .Collapse wdCollapseEnd
    End With
    End Sub

    That's why I used the word "permanent"

    Hans,
    Nicely done. But replacing the footnote dialog is probably not a good idea. Your code would work better as InsertFootnoteNow which is where I think I'll put it. Thanks, man.
