When you insert footnotes, it's not uncommon to have a reason to add a cross-reference to the footnote. Because Word assumes you are going to want to cross-reference, it adds Footnote (and Endnote) to the list of Reference types. In addition, Word automatically shows associated cross-reference elements:
- Footnote number: Word inserts the footnote number as the cross-reference. For example, See footnote 35.
- Page number: Word inserts the page number on which the footnote appears as the cross-reference. For example, See the footnote on page 96.
- Above/Below: Word inserts the footnote number with the word above or below based on the location of the footnote in the document. For example, See footnote 35 above.
- Footnote number (formatted): Word inserts the footnote number as the cross-reference; however, it is presented in superscript, which matches the footnote format.
Insert Cross-Reference to Footnote
- Confirm that your document has footnotes inserted.
- Click in the document where you want to insert the cross-reference to the footnote.
- Insert the cross-reference.
In Word 2007 or 2010, click the Reference tab, and select Cross-reference in the Captions group.
In Word 2003, select Insert, Reference, and then Cross-reference.
- In the Reference type field, select Footnote.
- In the Insert reference to field, select a cross-reference element.
- In the For which footnote field, select a footnote from the list.
- Click the Insert button. Word adds the cross-reference to the footnote.
