Cannot find a footnote or an endnote. Please report this file to

Could you please help me in this regard?



Thank you for considering Aspose.

Please attach your document template.

Thanks for your response. Here is the document… (.DOT file)

The footnote after “$ 250.00” (1) caused the problem. I’ve remade it. Attached is the working document, please check it.


Thanks for your response. What’s the difference between my document and your posted document? Could you please let me know what the problem is, so that it could be easier for me to let my business know about it and avoid future problems like it?


Binary MS Word documents sometimes are somewhat corrupt according to our knowledge of the format. Also, sometimes it is hard to say what the actual cause of the corruption is. As I remember, I simply replaced that footnote reference with a superscript “1”.
