Default batch convert all footnotes to endnotes in multiple word files

hey,

I have several word documents. As the standard of the format is changed, I have to convert all the footnotes to end notes in them.

I know I can select “Convert all footnotes to endnotes” option in one word document to change it. But using this way, I have to do that one by one .

Is there any quickly way to batch convert all footnotes to endnotes in multiple word files? Thanks!

hello,

It seems there is no such fuction which can do that directly in Word. As a workaround, try to use VBA code. See below.


Sub BatchConvertFootnotesToEndnotes()
Dim objWordApplication As New Word.Application
Dim strFile As String
Dim strFolder As String

strFolder = InputBox("Enter the folder address", "Folder Address", "For example:E:\test word\test\")
strFile = Dir(strFolder & "*.doc*", vbNormal)

While strFile ""
With objWordApplication
.Documents.Open (strFolder & strFile)
.ActiveDocument.Footnotes.Convert
.ActiveDocument.Close
End With
strFile = Dir()
Wend

Set objWordApplication = Nothing

End Sub

And I also attach the article which I find this macro, hope it helps.
