Linda knows how to add endnotes to the end of a document. What she wants to do, however, is to add a page after the endnotes in order to add additional references that need to be included with her document.
The way to do this is fairly simple in Word. By default, endnotes are placed at the end of the document in which they occur. You can, however, specify where you want endnotes to appear. You have two choices: end of the document (the default) and end of the section.
What this means is that you can add a next page section break after the end of your document's body, and then add to the new section (the part after the section break) the information you want after the endnotes. Then, follow these steps:
Figure 1. The Footnote and Endnote dialog box.
After this change, the endnotes should appear just before the section break, and right before the additional reference items needed in the document.
