Note-Ref

Postby indus_team » Tue Sep 26, 2017 9:37 am

Hi,

I have created a word document using Microsoft office application and I have created a new Noteref field . When i save this docx file to doc file, the noteref field is working properly. But when i open the doc file in openoffice 4.1, the fieldcode is replaced with an error message as "Error: Reference source not found".

Do any one have idea about this issue and how to get worked?

Thanks,
indus

Welcome to the forum.

See [Tutorial] Differences between Writer and MS Word files for an explanation of what is happening, and for why you should always work in and save files as .odt.

If this solves the problem, please view your first post in this thread and click the Edit button (top right in the post) and add [Solved] in front of the subject.

Just to be clear, you want to refer to an existing footnote or endnote, not a reference?

Yes, I need to refer the footnote reference.

Best I can think of is to use a cross-reference. See https://forum.openoffice.org/en/forum/v ... ce#p350348. I am not sure it is the same thing as the MS Note-Ref.

If you look at the rest of that thread, you will see that I am dubious of the style as a normal academic publishing style. But then, I believe footnotes were invented by a sadistic monster who then ended its successful career by creating endnotes.

I found a bug report that seems to be relevant, but it contains no suggestions for workarounds:

Issue 78920 - WW8: Cross References should be exported as "NoteRef"

Hello,

To make it simplify my request: I need to provide a cross reference to the footnotes using field values.
