SYMPTOMS

In Microsoft Word, if you edit a footnote, the following error message may appear:

Not a valid action for footnotes

CAUSE

This message usually results from trying to delete a paragraph mark that separates footnotes. You can format this mark, but you cannot delete it.

This message also appears if you try to delete the footnote number in the footnote window.

WORKAROUND

If you want to delete the footnote, delete the footnote reference number that appears in the text of your document.
