Copper Contributor

I am editing a document where there are two citation numbers - all in all there are 74 citations but there are two 7s.   How to fix this?

Thanks Doug, how do I upload the document?

@ennoh412 When you click on Reply, use the "Drag and drop here or browse for files to attach"

At the bottom of the reply window there is the option to open the full text editor.



here is the document - there are two number 7 citations - how to fix?  in all there are 74...

@ennoh412 Your document contained Footnotes, NOT Citations as that feature exists in Word, and the first 7 was not a Footnote Reference.  When it was replaced by an actual Footnote Reference, it was displayed as Footnote Reference 7 and the number of the next Footnote Reference, was incremented by 1 to 8.  Likewise, the numbers of all of the following Footnote References were incremented by one.

The modified document has been uploaded.

Thanks Doug - I thought footnote and citation were interchangeable. Thanks for your help, I will go back to the master document and see if I can fix it.
