How to run code in a Word Document.

How to run code in a Word Document.
I have received a code from an Expert some time ago about organising my foot notes so that some beome end notes and others remain footnotes.
But I am not sure how to run the code. TThe Word Documet  is formatted in Word 2010.
OS Windows 10.

What i have tried: Open the document. Put cursor whete I want code entered. Clicked on 'Insert'. Clicked on 'Objet'. Clicked on 'open document' text'. .Click on 'ok'. Paste the code onto the page of the blank docujment which appears.  NOW I'M STUCK. I notice that the code now also appears in the original document in the place where I put the cursor. BUT HOW DO I GET THE CODE TO RUN.
