I am editing a client’s Word document that contains that domineering
Horizontal Line so popular in these messages. I have tried the Control + Q,
ensuring there is no Border selected on the previous paragraph, and disabling
the Auto Format As You Type to no avail. Let me list the symptoms.

1) A two inch line exists about 2 inches from the bottom of the 6th page.
2) A quarter inch wide box surrounds the line if Format Characters is
displayed.
3) If I insert CRs in front of it until it auto pages, it becomes a full
width line.
4) The line appears to be part of the header, as it is at the top of all
subsequent pages.
5) When headers are displayed, those on page 7 and following expand an
additional ¼ inch to include it.
6) I have no information in any header, but do have a short line and page
number in the footer.
7) It disappears if the text is hidden.
8) I can’t select it. I also tried selecting CRs above and below it, but got
bleeped.
9) Can’t insert a page break with Control + Enter in page 7 and all
following. The insert menu has grayed out Break, Page Numbers, Comments,

10) When I click on the line, the cursor is displayed on the following line

What you describe sounds like a Footnote Separator. When you force it to the
next page, you get a Footnote Continuation Separator. This indicates that
you have a footnote in the document. What I think is happening, judging
from your description, is that the text of a footnote was deleted without
deleting the (perhaps hidden) footnote reference in the text. The footnote
thus remained, albeit empty. Perhaps footnotes are set to be "Below text"
rather than at "Bottom of page," but in any case, working in Print Layout
view, you (or someone) started typing in the footnote rather than in the
document body. All the text from that point forward is now part of the
footnote instead of the body text. Naturally, as you add to the footnote, it
grows to take up page after page, each one headed with the Footnote
Continuation Separator.

This may be a little difficult to fix, but here's what I'd suggest:

1. Display all nonprinting characters (including Hidden text) using the Show
All command.

2. Display text boundaries (Tools | Options View); this will help you get a
better handle on the extent of text areas in the document.

3. Select all the text in the document that follows the original short line.
Cut or Copy (I would suggest cutting all but a line or two of the
text--leave a little to work with later.)

4. At the end of the last paragraph preceding the short line, press Enter to
create a new empty paragraph.

5. Paste the cut/copied text here.

6. This is where it's going to get tricky. Switch to Normal view and use
View | Footnotes to open the footnote pane. When you place the insertion
point in the footnote text, the footnote reference mark should be on the top
line of the document text displayed above. With luck, you should be able to
find it and delete it (even if it's formatted as Hidden, it should be
displayed since you have Hidden text displayed. If so, select it and delete
it.

7. If that doesn't work, close the footnote pane and use Edit | Go To to go
to Footnote. If there's something there, Word may be able to find it. If it
does, even if you can't see the reference mark, select a few characters on
either side of the insertion point and delete. Then retype the visible text
characters.

8. If that doesn't work, select the entire line where the footnote reference
mark must be, delete it, and retype.

9. If that doesn't work, I'm out of ideas! You'll have to see

Your descriptions sounds like it would meet all of the symptoms. The
document does hae endnotes. I'll just substitute that in your instructions in
place of footnotes and have a go. Thaqnks for the quick response.

Well, thanks for your very detailed and accurate description of the problem.
I don't always have the patience to read that much detail, but this one
piqued my curiosity, and your accurate description of the appearance of the
"lines" created a very clear picture in my head that immediately said
"Footnote Separator." At that point, it was obvious that the rest of the
symptoms matched this solution exactly!

is
displayed.
3) If I insert CRs in front of it until it auto pages, it becomes

a
full
width line.
4) The line appears to be part of the header, as it is at the top

of
all
subsequent pages.
5) When headers are displayed, those on page 7 and following

expand an
additional ¼ inch to include it.
6) I have no information in any header, but do have a short line

and
page
number in the footer.
7) It disappears if the text is hidden.
8) I can’t select it. I also tried selecting CRs above and below

it,
but
got
bleeped.
9) Can’t insert a page break with Control + Enter in page 7 and

all
following. The insert menu has grayed out Break, Page Numbers,

Comments,
Diagrams, and Text Box.
10) When I click on the line, the cursor is displayed on the

following
line
of text.
11) I have also tried the anti-formatting and Control + Q thing on

the
preceding Headers and Footers.

Sighhhhhhh! I am now awaiting your magic wand to tell me what I

have
done
did or didn't done.

Your descriptions sounds like it would meet all of the symptoms. The
document does hae endnotes. I'll just substitute that in your

instructions
in
place of footnotes and have a go. Thaqnks for the quick response.



As Dizzy Dean said, "It ain't braggin' if'n you kin do it!" and you did

it.
We had 30 some pages of end-notes. Thanks muchly.
