Jumping to an Endnote

by Allen Wyatt
(last updated March 31, 2012)

You can use the Go To function of Word to jump to a specific endnote in your document. You do this in the following manner:

  1. Press F5. Word displays the Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box. (See Figure 1.)
  2. Figure 1. The Go To tab of the Find and Replace dialog box.

  3. In the left side of the dialog box, choose Endnote. This informs Word what you want to go to. The Enter Page Number box is relabeled as the Enter Endnote Number box.
  4. In the Enter Endnote Number box, enter the endnote number to which you want to jump. If you want to go to the next endnote, leave the box blank.
  5. Click your mouse on the Go To button or the Next button. (This is the same button. The name changes depending on whether you entered an endnote number in step 3.)

If there are no endnotes in the document, or if you enter an invalid endnote number, Word positions you at the beginning of the document.
