@Dr_Alan_Dattner To remove all of the endnotes, run a macro containing the following code
Dim i As Long
For i = .Endnotes.Count To 1 Step -1
To remove an individual endnote, select and delete the endnote reference in the body of the document. That will cause the endnote text to be deleted and the numbering of any endnotes, that are located in the document after that one, will be adjusted accordingly.
