    Hi!

    I am using Microsoft Word 2003 and can't insert footnotes. Under 'View' the footnote option is pale and cannot be clicked. Tried finding a solution to this problem online but without success. Looking forward to help.

    Thanks!

    mmm
    Can you do this as a test which should work.

    In a new document type your first name and then select that text.

    Click on Insert, Reference, Footnote

    Make sure the footnotes option is selected in the dialogue box and then click on Insert.

    Click on the view menu.

    Is footnote grayed out anymore?
