    Footnote separators without footnotes (W97)

    Howdy,

    My client has a Word document he's been asked to fix. 3 or 4 of the pages in the document have footnote separators on them but no footnotes on those pages. Possibly related...he has several extra hard returns in the footnote area (Normal View, View Footnotes). Of course, you can't delete those hard returns; that's "Not a valid action for footnotes".

    How do we get rid of those footnote separators and/or the extra hard returns?

    Thanks in advance for the help.

    Is it possible there are tracked changes in the footnotes that haven't been accepted? If I delete footnotes from the body, any "internal" paragraph markings are removed fromt he footnote pane. I only tested in Word 2002, so I can't rule out a bug in Word 97...
