Footnotes.Add procedure builder

Footnotes.Add (Word)

Returns a Footnote object that represents a footnote added to a range.

To specify a symbol for the Reference argument, use the syntax {FontName CharNum}. FontName is the name of the font that contains the symbol. Names of decorative fonts appear in the Font box in the Symbol dialog box (Insert menu). CharNum is the sum of 31 and the number corresponding to the position of the symbol you want to insert, counting from left to right in the table of symbols. For example, to specify an omega symbol at position 56 in the table of symbols in the Symbol font, the argument would be "{Symbol 87}".
