Microsoft Word/endnotes


How can I put endnotes at the end of a section, and not at the end of the whole document?
In the doc. I am writing, I have two sections, but the endnotes are all at the end of the doc., but numbered 1-10 for the first section and 1-81 for the second.

Hello Carl,

Sorry you are having problems, but endnotes will not go to the end of the section, they go to the end of the document.  However, you can have the endnote numbers restart at each section (See the attached image).

Hope this helps.
