    Impossible to say what you are doing in this example.

    I just know that footnotes cause no issues in DM, as this simply uses the Word header/footer functionality.

    If you look at the SAP® Disclosure Management 10.1 Starter Kit you can see many examples of footnotes.

      Hi Marc,

      I have Raised to SAP Support says. below shows.

      The footnote disappears under the following condition: It is added

      within the datalinked table in your word document after you perform a

      server side content refresh.

      I went through your Report setup with you and found out there were

      missing components from the Report/Chapter details, in particular the

      "Ad hoc action" section, which suggests incomplete

      This file stores table designs

      used in the various SAP Disclosure Management reports. Each design has

      a unique name. A design can be assigned to a table when the data

      provider connection is created for the first time, or at a later stage.

      To become an expert in the creation of table templates,

      although youuse only the Word standard tools, takes time. You can use the Paste

      Briefing Book tool to create templates. The system stores the last

      briefing book loaded in the cache memory.

      When you test your template, you can open both the template and

      document files with the table. You load the data provider or refresh

      the data, and check the template design in your document. If the

      result is not satisfactory, you return to the opened template file and

      make changes. You save the changes

      and return back to the document and reload the data from the cache,

      which is quicker than a refresh, to check the effect of your design

      changes to the table.

      You continue to switch between the two open files until you have

      achieved the required result. If you need to add empty rows or

      additional columns to the data cache, you need to return to the

      refresh function and update the table.

      I have Different types of Report types also.

      Also have Adhoc Actions in (Available in Preview Types).

      I also tested footnotes in the table inserted through BIP_WordTableDef still not able to view the footnotes when do the content refresh.

      Please refer the below images.

      Please update you inputs.
