MS Word

I have a long document in MS Word. The document uses endnotes. I have cut and paste some sections of the text to move it around. The end notes now appear (at the end of the document) in the order that they appear in the document, but they have not been renumbered.

So, for example, if endnote 45 has been cut and pasted before endnote 30, the actual endnote 45 appears before 45 in the endnotes, but it's still numbered 45, the numbering hasn't adjusted automatically so that they're all numbered sequentially.

Can anyone advise me how I can correct this, without having to reinsert all the endnotes?

Sound like they need to be updated. You could try selecting the whole document (Ctrl + A) and then pressing the F9 key.

If that doesn't work select the End Notes and press F9.

I've tried both of your suggestions, but the footnote numbers don't update. Any more ideas?!

... auto change of endnotes when the endnote citation is selected, then dragged to a new position in the text ... the endnote jumps place as well. THEN it seems you must renumber - via Insert/Open footnote - Options - Note Options - All Endnotes - then choose how you'd like the footnotes to be numbered like Roman or Lettered or Arabic ... etc. and from where to commence. Hope this works ...

Your instructions sound promising, but I can't quite get them to work. When you say "Insert/Open footnote" - I can't see this in my menu. I have to go to "Insert" --> "Reference" --> "Footnote". (I'm using Word 2003). How do I then get it to renumber?

... states that if you drag the endnote number to its new position - it will update automatically. How that translates to Word 2003 is anybody's guess :) but give it a try ... ?

Are you talking about the actual endnote or the superscript number in the main text which refers to the endnote?

Is it not possible just to get Word to renumber all the endnotes so that they are all in numerical order both in the text and in the endnotes list at the end of the document?

... superscript ...
