I have a user who created a large Word document that contains lots of footnotes.  He wants the footnotes and the words that reference the footnotes extracted from the document and put into an Excel table.  Anyone have any idea on how that can be done?  I have a very good programmer here so if it needs a programmer that could work for us.  If it can be done within Word and Excel I could do that myself.  Many thanks for any help!!!

I asked for a copy of the documents but was unable to get them before he had someone spend a day and a half manually doing the moves.  Sorry for the orphan request!!

you may use word addin like note stripper (Editorium), or any macro that move the footnote to the text area, then simply copy and paste into excel. each paragraph would be pasted in a cell.

I hope this is what you are looking for.
