TRY ThIs If you need to refer to the same footnote or
endnote in more than one location, insert the first occurrence
of the note normally. Next, insert one or more cross-references to the
note’s reference mark in the other locations. Then, apply the Footnote
Reference character style to each cross-reference. The cross-references
must be updated manually if additions or deletions in the sequence
cause the note’s number to change. For more information about
inserting cross-references, see “Repeating information by using
cross-references” on page 216.
