I have a document with 600 notes. Of these 400 are end notes which are numbered . The remainder (200)are also endnotes but are marked not by numbers but by asterisks.  
What I want to separate the asterisked references from the numbered, leaving the numbered as end notes, but converting the asterisked into footnotes.

 Is there any quick way of doing this.

This is what I am doing at present.  1. Going to an asterisked end note, copying its content, 2. Deleting the reference (asterisk) in the main text of the document,  3. Then reinserting the reference as a footnote and adding the text I have copied.

Any help appreciated to speed this up.
