I am using Word 2007.

I have a lengthy document with footnotes. I have converted the footnotes into endnotes. I necy  added  four or five pages of an index directly after the endnotes.
I want to lay out this index in 2 columns. However, it seems,  the Column option is NOT available because the Index is situated within the footnote-endnote area.


How do I get round this?
Is it possible to exit the endnote area in a document and add normal text -so that page 277 (for example) is the last page of endnotes and page 278 (the next page) is is a normal page (not composed in the  space for footnotes or endnotes)?

I'm not sure whether I have explained myself properly.

Try inserting a table into the endnote, split it into 2 columns and make the border transparent.
Does this achieve something like what your looking for?

Have you tried inserting a Section break before the Index?

I tried the Table  idea. I created the table,  but when I tried to paste in the index I kept getting the following message:
'you cannot put section breaks into a header, footer, endnote, footnote, comment, text box, callout or macro'.

I also inserted a section break before the endnotes commenced. I then tried to insert another section break  at the end of the endnotes (sorry the pun) without success. Keep getting this same message as above:

Will your db performance match your db growth?

In Percona’s white paper “Performance at Scale: Keeping Your Database on Its Toes,” we take a high-level approach to what you need to think about when planning for database scalability.

Enable the button that shows all the hidden formatting / breaks etc (as shown in the image).
Make sure your not copying any section breaks or any other special formatting like that into the table. enablehiddenformatting

I have enabled the button. There is nothing strange as far as I can see. If I attempt to paste the Index into the table I get that message: you cannot put section breaks into a header, footer, endnote, footnote, comment, text box, callout or macro'

If I paste the Index just before the endnote area starts, it pastes perfectly. But I want to paste it AFTER the endnotes finish. I am unable to insert a section  break at the end of the endnotes.

I've got it done. I used Nuance PDF Creator to combine the two files into a single PDF file . And that was succesful. I was not able to do it within Word 2007 and it looked complicated. But I got it done. Thanks for help.
