    foot notes (03 SP1)

    I want to use the same foot note at several locations in one document. That is, I only want the foot note to appear once, but I want the same foot note number to appear at 4 locations referring to the single footnote. So if the foot note is number 1, I want the superscript 1 to appear 4 times. I have worked around the problem by typing in a superscript "1" of similar font and size to the foot note. But is there a way to actually enter the same footnote reference in more than one location?

    Insert > Reference > Cross Reference > Footnote

    You can then format the number to use Footnote Reference style.

    Put the footnote in the usual way for the first occurrence and then in subsequent places, use Insert > Cross Reference and set the cross-ref type to Footnote and find the footnote you want to cross-refer to. After you have created the cross reference you can reformat it to the same 'Footnote Reference' style.

    Use Insert>Reference>Cross-Reference (Insert>Cross-Reference in WinWord pre-2002 and all Mac versions) to insert a cross-reference to the existing note. You will need to Update Fields (usually by selecting all and pressing F9) for the cross-references to update if the note numbers change.
