Ok thanks Stefan. I will look at it, But the Footnote Continuation Separator?
I wasnt aware of it so I will have a look. The typeseter said to change it to a line. I didn't think I could. I will try this.

You will see I responded to the topic "changing footnote to a number by changing macro "at microsoft community. (I see you are also a member). A thread I started and someone else wanted info on.
As a result I have a real problem and I may have to post again so I hope someone can help once I recreate the problem and I can explain it. I will continue to try and sove it but I think it is a unique problem caused by changing my global template. My user name ends with 999. Thought you should know. Dont want to misrepresent.

Thanks for your time again
Stefan I did reply to you at Microsoft site re the topic "Cant change footnote number from superscript in footnotes" but it doesnt seem to have made it onto the site.
Wow looking at my posts in the past I must have been under stress judging by my typing. I just want to say thank you for your help on word banter and Microsoft. You gave me a lot of assistance on the topic ďCanít change footnote number from superscript in footnotesĒ My username was Diana_9999
I am a little bit clearer on how macros work but at first it was so overwhelming to an intermediate level user. Yes you were right about the extra code and nobody else pointed this out when they sent me to the article on how to perform this task, although acknowledged that you were correct.
It would be a real help if a new article could be written by Microsoft themselves and show step by step screenshots for users like myself or better still to write this function in the next version of word. I had several people refer me to the only article dealing with my problem that must be over 10 years old and no longer correct. Do you have any influence with Microsoft? It appears you and others on the forum are doing part of their job.
Stefan you and all the others on this site and Microsoft are wonderful with your time and patience. I have looked at a lot of material on creating and working with macros but there never seems to be an example that fits your situation and it is difficult to grasp. I am not good with technical concepts and reapplying them to other situations.
Isnít it about time Microsoft supplied comprehensive online interactive videos or tutorials for new and intermediate users, even at a price. I have messed up big time and want to try and get out of this rather than rely on the goodwill of others who have given me their time. It is difficult to assist people with elementary knowledge. I have tried to get one on one training in the things I want to know but no one will do this as it is not economical. I actually paid someone to implement the code for superscript problem. He gave me step by step screenshots and I couldnít have done it without them. I have looked at lots of resources but none seem to explain the concepts in simple language.

Thanks so much

Correction: Obviously I meant to write *successor* (not predecessor). :-)

Yes, I contribute to the Microsoft Community as well. Actually, the
Community (formerly Microsoft Answers) is the predecessor of the
microsoft.public.word.* newsgroups, which (a few years back) were hosted
on Microsoft servers. Nowadays, the groups have a life of their own here
on Usenet... Traffic is relatively slow, as you may have noticed.

I'm not sure which thread in the Community you are referring to. Posting a
link would help.

'Stefan Blom[_3_ Wrote:
;493964']To work with footnote separators: Switch to Draft view (Word
2007 or later).
Click the References tab, and then click Show Notes. In the footnotes
pane,
click the arrow next to the drop down and choose Footnote Separator. You
can
then delete the separator (or replace it with something else if you
wish).
You can do the same for the Footnote Continuation Separator.

Do post back with additional questions/follow-ups. :-)

As an MVP, my influence with Microsoft is limited, actually. I do agree that
there should be a good introduction to vBA. There is a brief intro at the
http://word.mvps.org site, but it is a bit outdated; that is true...

Anyway, thank you for your kind words! :-)

By the way, which thread were you referring to? The one below?

Hello Stefan
Strange I donít see my message from last night and the one you just sent. I had just written another one that I havenít sent. Yet I could see it in the email notification

Yes the topic was the one you gave the Link to. http://answers.microsoft.com/en-us/o...b-8aaa492a6c22
I got a new code that was taken from my document I had sent someone, so my paid "expert" added the extra code. Now I have lost "the fix" it because my charts I produce in Word kept asking me if I wanted to change normal template etc. etc. and then lots of other messages. I must have done something wrong. Well I know I did. So I now donít have my fix and I have corrupted charts. Oh well. I will see if my expert will help out if I canít find a way of fixing this, but he helped me after work at 12pm so must be very busy. I have printed the three pages I got from the forum and studied them again.
Microsoft should listen to the experts on the forum who know what is happening at the user level Pity.
Once again thank you.
