    Footnote numbering (Word 2002)

    I have a footnote on page 9 which is 3. I have a footnote on page 10 which is 7. It should say 4. What I'm I doing wrong.

    Re: Footnote numbering (Word 2002)

    Hi. I opened your attachment in Word 2000 and everything looks okay. So I am afraid I cannot help you in 2002. The only thing that I can think of is if you may have inadvertently told Word to start numbering at 7 for the footnote in question. Don't know. Hopefully somone out there with Word 2002 can provide better help than I have been able to.

    Have you tried erasing and reentering the foortnote to see if that fixes things? <img src=/S/compute.gif border=0 alt=compute width=40 height=20>

    Re: Footnote numbering (Word 2002)

    I opened your attachment in Word 2000 also, but everything wasn't OK. The numbering went from 3 to 2, however. Also, the footnote reference marks looked different. When hidden text was shown, the first & last set of footnote reference marks were inside little boxes, the way I'm used to seeing it. The middle set was not inside small hidden boxes.

    I copied everything but the section break & last paragraph mark to a new document & inserted the section break. It then exhibited the numbering that you mentioned (3 to 10). I tried converting to .htm & back, converting to .rtf; nothing worked.

    I finally copied the text of the second set of footnotes numbered 1, 2, & 3 (the funny looking ones). Then I deleted & replaced them. Somehow, these 3 footnotes got corrupted, but I don't know how.
    Cheers,
