In this video, we take a look at how numbering works with Word's built-in footnote and endnote function. Not only does Word automatically number your notes for you, but also you can choose different numbering formats and change the starting value.
You can learn more about working with footnotes and endnotes at Office.com.

I have been searching all over Win 7; Office 2007 Help; Google; Google Groups; MS; this blog; Yahoo...
It amazes me how MS has done so well in hiding this feature in Office 2007 / Word 2007 / Win 7. Question: HOW CAN I SEARCH ALL WORD DOCUMENTS IN A FOLDER FOR A SPECIFIC STRING? I'm posting my message here because I cannot find the appropriate place to post; perhaps because it is so well hidden.
Thank you for the help!
In windows Explorer, click on Tools, then on “Folder Options…” Click on the Search tab. At the top section labeled ‘What to search’ there are two radio buttons. If you select the top radio button, search will only search inside files that have been indexed. If you select the bottom one, it will search even non indexed files(it might take longer). Try experimenting with both and see if that helps your search of all word documents in a folder for a specific string.
I have a ton of hyperlinks in my 8 page document. and I have 300 documents that are just like that. Now I have to change a hyperlink across all 300 documents. I'd really like to do that once, using some global batch process. find and replace isn't working for me, I already tried that; I also ALT+F9 to expose th hyperlinks and tried to manually change them. no dice. can you help me? thanks you, Starbuck.
Starbuck, I have two potential solutions here that I hope might make your chore a little less painful.
The first solution is pretty straightforward, but you'll need to do it for each one of your 300 (!) documents. These steps work in Word 2003, 2007, and 2010.
This second solution comes from Harold, one of our support engineers. It involves macros and before we go there, I'm obliged to provide you with the following disclaimer:
WARNING: ANY USE BY YOU OF THE CODE PROVIDED IN THIS EXAMPLE IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. Microsoft provides this macro code "as is" without warranty of any kind, either express or implied, including but not limited to the implied warranties of merchantability and/or fitness for a particular purpose.
Okay, so here we go. You could use a macro like this to change the hyperlinks in each document assuming they are all the same
Dim hyper As Hyperlink
For Each hyper In ActiveDocument.Hyperlinks
If InStr(hyper.Address, "office.microsoft") > 0 Then
.Address = "http://blogs.office.com/"
.TextToDisplay = "blogs.office.com/"
Then using the Dir function to open each document and run this macro. If the documents are docx, this can probably be done faster using the OOXML SDK.
Now, if none of that made sense and macros just aren't your thing, then I suggest you just stick with the first, non-macro, 300x solution. Maybe put on the headphones and listen to some good music to reduce the monotony :-)
Hope that helps!
I have a problem with automatic numbering of footnotes. Occasionally, a footnote number duplicates itself, and the whole footnote text. If I delete the note, both go away, and the next number appears twice, exactly repeated. If I try to re-enter the original note, both notes reappear, identically. What's to be done? Thanks for any help you can give to this puzzling problem.
I am writing a book with multiple chapters. I want the footnotes to start with new numbers for each chapter (not continuous throughout the document). I see that a footnote/endnote option is to Restart each section. But how do I set up sections?
@ Ellen, often when the footnotes in a document are numbered incorrectly, the document contains tracked changes. Accept the tracked changes and Word will correctly number the footnotes and endnotes. Click here for a video blog post on Tracked Changes.
@ little david, Here's how you insert a Section break:
Choosing Next Page inserts a section break and starts the new section on the next page. Choosing Continuous inserts a section break and starts the new section on the same page.Choosing Even Page or Odd Page inserts a section break and starts the new section on the next even-numbered or odd-numbered page.
If you'd like more on that, try this Office.com help article.
Here's an interesting question: Is there a way to number footnotes within sections that are NOT continuous NOR restarting? For example, while working on a compilation, we are trying to cut & paste several separate sections of text with footnotes into one file, yet maintain each section's individual footnote numbering rather than having to manually create specifically numbered notes. That is, the first section contains notes 1-22; the next section we wish to use contains notes 45-90; and the last section, notes 25-60. The purpose here is to preserve the numbering from the original source. Can't wait to hear your response!
