Janice, You might want to check what footnote style is selected. I use Long and Short Form. Also you might want to use the Check feature where there is an option provided to rebuild footnotes. Check optimizes the project and library files. To get to that, choose Utilities/Project/Check. You may not want to check all of the boxes. Make sure to click on REPAIR instead of OKAY and I think it should repair any complications with your footnotes, if any. Make sure to look in your manual on the options here.
