Can Word automatically update footnotes?

Default Can Word automatically update footnotes?

How can I create footnotes in Word? Right now all I'm doing is adding a superscripted number in the text as a reference to a footnote, and on the last page of my document spelling out the footnote. But I'm wondering if there's a way of getting Word to recognize this as a footnote. That way, I can do things like insert an extra footnote mid-way through the document and have Word automatically update all footnotes that follow (for example, if I add a footnote between footnotes 3 and 4, it would automatically update footnote 4 to footnote 5, footnote 5 to footnote 6, and so on to the end of the document).

Can Word do this?

'Insert Footnote' is on the References tab.
  1. Place the insertion point where you want the superscript to appear.
  2. Click References > Insert Footnote
  3. Word will sling your insertion point to the bottom of the page
  4. Type the footnote
Yes, the numbers automatically update.
