Managing  Endnotes in publication. How do I edit the numbering.

I have composed a document with over 400 endnotes,  numbered  consequetively from beginning to end.

What I want to do is this. Instead of notes and references running from 1-400  I want a separate listing for each Chapter - EACH starting from the number 1.  

In the First Chapter I find there are 40 references, numbered 1-40. No problem here. However in the Second Chapter which has 60 references, I want them numbered  1-60 (not continuous from Chap 1, as  41-101).   I want the same for for all the other chapters.  The Third Chapter, for example, has 72 references.   I want these numbered 1-72 in the Document and in the Endnote references at end of document.
How do I accomplish this?

You need to end each chapter with a Next Page Section Break and then choose to insert your Endnotes at the End of the section

The comment above from finalword shows only part of what you need to do.
You wanted the endnotes at the end of the document, so the default Location is okay. However, you need to set Numbering=Restart each section to have the numbers restart at 1 for each chapter (and as finalword notes, for this to work, each chapter needs to be in its own section). Finally, you need to apply the changes to the whole document.

When you have completed your editing, your endnotes will be numbered as you want, but each chapter's notes will follow immediately after the previous one. For clarity, you will probably need to manually insert some chapter id within the endnote section to separate each chapter's notes.
