Hi I am having unusual problems inserting footnotes in a Word

Customer Question

Hi: I am having unusual problems inserting footnotes in a Word document. Previously, I used insert, then footnote, and it worked seamlessly. Now, footnote is not under insert, but under view and it does not function. Any idea what has happened? Sheena

Hello, and welcome to JustAnswer! I will make every effort to assist you. If you have any questions after reading my posts feel free to ask me!

Christopher Bessler :

In order to properly assess this, i need to know what version of Word you are using.

Christopher Bessler :

Also, what happens when you try to use the Footnote selection under view?

Christopher Bessler :

Also make sure that you do not have a small set of arrows on the bottom of the Insert menu.

Christopher Bessler :

If you do, click on it and see if Footnote appears.

1. I checks applications and the date for Word is 2001. That doesn't seem possible.

Not the date of Word, I need the version.

Word XP? 2003? 2007?

AH, then I need to opt out. As there is a separate set of experts for Mac issues.
