I'm currently working on a project in Word 2010. There are several footnotes that appear throughout the text. The way they are now, they appear at the bottom of the relevant page of text, so page 5 might have 2 footnotes, page 10 might have 4 footnotes, etc. I'd like to move all these footnotes to the end of the document, which is about 300 pages long. Is there any way I can do this with the click of a button or two? There are lots of footnotes, and I'd hate to have to go through and do the whole thing manually. Thank you in advance for any suggestions you may have.

Click Help, then enter "footnote".

Endnote instead of footnote Sep 27, 2013

Hi Amel,
That's no problem at all: Just go to "Insert", then "Footnote…" and then click on "Endnote" instead of "Footnote".
Hdh,
Irene

You could try this Sep 27, 2013

- Put your cursor in one of the footnotes
- Ctrl+A to select all the footnotes
- Right click > Convert to endnote

It seems to do the trick in my Word 2007, don't know about 2010 though.

Sorry! Sep 27, 2013

I just realised that you already have the footnotes at then end of each page, so my earlier suggestions won't work.
But have a look here: http://wordprocessing.about.com/od/formattingdocument1/tp/How-To-Convert-Footnotes-and-Endnotes-In-Word-2010.htm
Hope this helps!
Irene
