Create Multiple Footnote References (NOTEREF Field) for Single Footnote Text in Word Document (C# .NET)

How do we create multiple footnote/endnote references for a single footnote/endnote text in Aspose.Words?

e.g. Sample sentence1 for a single footnote1

1. Footnote text.

In Microsoft Word you can do the same by going to the menu References -> Cross-reference. You can then select the option “Reference Type:” as Footnote, option “Insert reference to:” as Footnote number and then select the footnote which is already created.

@rhegde,

I think, you can build logic on the following C# code of Aspose.Words for .NET API to get the desired results:

Document doc = new Document();
DocumentBuilder builder = new DocumentBuilder(doc);

InsertBookmarkWithFootnote(builder, "MyBookmark1", "Contents of MyBookmark1", "Footnote from MyBookmark1");

builder.InsertBreak(BreakType.PageBreak);

InsertFieldNoteRef(builder, "MyBookmark1", true, false, false, "Bookmark1, with footnote number ");
builder.Writeln();
InsertFieldNoteRef(builder, "MyBookmark1", true, false, false, "Bookmark1, with footnote number ");

doc.UpdateFields();

doc.Save("C:\\temp\\21.7.docx");

private static FieldNoteRef InsertFieldNoteRef(DocumentBuilder builder, string bookmarkName, bool insertHyperlink, bool insertRelativePosition, bool insertReferenceMark, string textBefore)
{
    builder.Write(textBefore);

    FieldNoteRef field = (FieldNoteRef)builder.InsertField(FieldType.FieldNoteRef, true);
    field.BookmarkName = bookmarkName;
    field.InsertHyperlink = insertHyperlink;
    field.InsertRelativePosition = insertRelativePosition;
    field.InsertReferenceMark = insertReferenceMark;
    builder.Writeln();

    return field;
}

private static void InsertBookmarkWithFootnote(DocumentBuilder builder, string bookmarkName, string bookmarkText, string footnoteText)
{
    builder.StartBookmark(bookmarkName);
    builder.Write(bookmarkText);
    builder.InsertFootnote(FootnoteType.Footnote, footnoteText);
    builder.EndBookmark(bookmarkName);
    builder.Writeln();
}

@awais.hafeez Thank you!
