What are Footnotes and Endnotes in Word Document?
Footnotes and Endnotes:
Footnotes and endnotes are used to elaborate, comment on, or reference/cite sources in a document. Footnotes are comments which appear at the bottom of the page.
To insert Footnotes,
  1. First place your cursor at the reference point (position from which you want to refer to the footnote).
  2. Now click on INSERT and select REFERENCE.
  3. This produces another drop-down list from which you need to select the FOOT-NOTE option.
  4. A window pops up where you can select the option Footnote (using the radio button) and then click on the INSERT button. This inserts a reference number at the reference point and moves the cursor to the bottom of the page where you can actually type the comment.
Endnotes are inserted at the end of the entire document. They are typically used to cite references in academic papers.
