Insert footnotes and endnotes as needed. Click where you wish the footnote or endnote to appear. Select Insert Footnote or Insert Endnote from the References tab. Fill in the blanks with whatever you like in the footnote or endnote. Return to your previous position in the document by double-clicking the number or symbol at the start of the note.
Endnotes appear at the end of the document, whereas footnotes appear at the bottom of the page. A reference mark in the document corresponds to a number or symbol on the footnote or endnote. Alternatively, press Alt+F9 or click the Reference button on the Standard toolbar.
Include a footnote
To edit a footnote or endnote, click the reference number or mark in the text, or go to Insert > Show Footnotes (for endnotes, go to Insert > Show Endnotes). The editor then sees a small box on the side of the page. Click inside the box to add text, or click another reference number or endnote symbol to go back to the main text.
Insert the insertion point at the location where you wish the footnote reference number to appear. Select Insert Footnote from the Type menu. Enter the footnote text. Click anywhere outside the footnote text box to return it to normal typing mode.
Make your footnotes and endnotes unique. Click Footnote in the Insert menu to open the Footnote and Endnote boxes. Select the choices you want in the footnote and endnote boxes. Choose whether to apply the changes to the entire document or just the portion you're in, and then click Insert. Word adds the text to the current paragraph.
Place the cursor where the original footnote should go in Microsoft Word. Navigate to the "References" ribbon. Insert the footnote information by clicking the 'Insert Footnote' button. Place the cursor where the second footnote should go. Repeat steps 1-3 to add another footnote.
Make a note of it.
