Hi Robert,

Your solution would be an absolute lifesaver!! Nice work.

Could you relink the dropbox doc (or just copy paste the script)? You would save me and my colleagues days of work :)

Thank you in advance!

Here is the relevant section from my macros - I borrowed it off the net and tweaked it a little, presumably Robert did similar, also made the wording a little clearer and defaulted it to [#] notes

Yikes!  I must have fat-fingered the files into oblivion.

Here's Version 4, in which I had to put a Word 2016 fix:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/heog8j4c7w7zwrg/Footnote%20Converter%20V4.docm?dl=0 

Just in case it's needed, here's the older version that worked fine in Word 2013:  https://www.dropbox.com/s/vni9nx441v49xfp/Footnote%20Converter%20V3.docm?dl=0 

Follow the instructions and caveats and remember:  sometimes you just have to drop back five yards and punt.

Cheers!

Thanks so much again for this macro. It's a real life-saver! 

I recently upgraded to Word 2016, and was having trouble making the macro work (getting the 4605 error, even with v4). I ended up putting 3 consecutive DoEvents instead of just 1 and now it is working like a charm. Could be that faster computers need more than one DoEvents to allow Word time to catch up with the macro? Not sure, anyway thanks again for a great macro.

Aha! Reminds me that not only had I gone from Word 2013 to 2016, at the same time I had moved to a faster computer. Causality vs. Covariation continues to vex.

Happy it's helpful.

Just wondering if any of you did any update to this amazing tools. 

I can't get them to work for a very strange reason...my footnote ID numbers in the text look like subscripts, but they are not...just plain "Normal" text...even if I try and clear the style they stay the same.....anyways...just wondering if you did any update on this macro since 2017, tnx

Hi Daniel:

No updates since then.

Try using another differentiating attribute, like font size or color. I occasionally have footnote markers that I just can't figure out.
