Default My footnotes/endnotes numbers are out of order. How to reset numbe

In my document, the footnotes go from 1, 2, 3, 197, 198, and so on. How can I
reset them so that they are in the right order again? I have tries changing
them from footnotes to endnotes and back again, and cutting and pasting into
a new document, but neither worked. Any ideas?

Are they really fields? I have seen documents where one user knew how to
properly create footnotes, and another did not... so they fudged it by
creating them manually. You can tell if they're fields by hitting Alt+F9.

I pressed Alt+F9, but I don't see anything to indicate fields or not.

Footnote/endnote reference marks (in text or in the footnote) don't display
field codes when toggled. Nor do they show field shading. They do show a
dotted-line box around the number.
