Refer to the same footnote or endnote more than once

  1. Click where you want the reference located.
  2. On the Insert menu, point to Reference, and then click Cross-reference.
  3. In the Reference type box, click Footnote or Endnote.
  4. In the For which box, click the note to which you want to refer.
  5. In the Insert reference to box, click Footnote number or Endnote number.
  6. Click Insert, and then click Close.

The note reference mark (note reference mark: A number, character, or combination of characters that indicates that additional information is contained in a footnote or endnote.) is inserted as unformatted text rather than as superscript (superscript: Describes text that is slightly higher than other text on a line, such as a footnote reference mark.).

ShowFormat the note reference mark as superscript

  1. Select the note reference mark.
  2. If the Styles and Formatting task pane (task pane: A window within an Office program that provides commonly used commands. Its location and small size allow you to use these commands while still working on your files.) is not open, click Styles and Formatting Button image on the Formatting toolbar (toolbar: A bar with buttons and options that you use to carry out commands. To display a toolbar, press ALT and then SHIFT+F10.).
  3. In the Styles and Formatting task pane, click Custom in the Show box.
  4. In the Format Settings dialog box, select the Footnote Reference or Endnote Reference check box, and then click OK.
  5. In the Styles and Formatting list, click Footnote Reference or Endnote Reference.

Superscript formatting is applied to the footnote.

 Note   The new number that Microsoft Word inserts is actually a cross-reference to the original reference mark. If you add, delete, or move a note, Word updates the cross-reference number when you print the document or when you select the cross-reference number and then press F9. If you have trouble selecting the cross-reference number by itself, try selecting some surrounding text along with it, and then press F9.
