Inserting endnotes in Word 2007 - numbering problem

Windows 10. Word 2007.

I have done the following successfully:
With notes set to appear as footnotes  (at bottom of each page)   and 'section breaks' inserted  between each Chapter  of a document  and,  lastly,  the notes for each chapter 'set to start  with the number 1'  and the 'restart  each section'  and , 'this section' selected.   I get a document with notes starting from No 1 in each Chapter.

However when I convert the notes to End Notes (at end of document) the notes appear as continuous (1-262). And they also appear continuous in the whole document, although the section breaks are still there. What am I doing wrong?

What do you want to have as a final result, endnotes (all at the end of the document) or footnotes (at the bottom of each page)?

The 'Endnotes' numbering choices are Continuous or Restart each section.

The 'Footnotes' numbering choices are Continuous, Restart each section or Restart each page.

To see the choices, go to References tab ―> Footnotes options and click on the small arrow to display the Footnotes panel.

Paul I want endnotes:  a list of notes at the end of my document in which numbering for each Chapter starts with the number 1.  This is how I have set about it.  

1. What I have done is first  to create footnotes (bottom of each page). The footnotes of each chapter both in the text and at the bottom of the page start with  the number 1 (I achieve this by putting 'section breaks' between the Chapters. Otherwise the numbers would run continuously to the end of the whole document).  

2. I now want to convert these Footnotes into Endnotes with the same characteristics. I click on 'References' and the arrow next to 'Footnotes. This gives me the 'Footnote and Endnote window'. In that window is the option to convert footnotes into endnotes. I selected the options  'restart each section', and the option 'this section'.

However when I click on the convert button I find that the finished product - the Endnotes - run consecutively for the whole document from No 1 to No 270. Moreover the numbering in the text runs from No 1 consecutively through the whole document.  I want the references in Each Chapter to start with No 1 and continue only to the end of that Chapter. The next Chapter will then start with No 1, both in the text and in the corresponding endnote.

I will do a test on this & see what results I get. I'm using Word 2010, but I am sure that ths works the same as Word 2007.

OK―Go to the top of the document, then open the 'Footnote and Endnote window'.

Select Endnotes, End of document, Start at 1, Restart each section and Apply changes to Whole document.

Now click on Convert, then Apply.Footnotes to Endnotes
Here is the document I tested. There were no footnotes, so I added some. Then I proceeded as above.

That's it.  I was inserting 'This Section', instead of the 'Whole Document'. I have it done and dusted now. Thanks so much for your help on this one.
