if .doc not works, than try to re-save to .docx or .rtf and repeat CTRL+D

And try to save your new version of .docx as old (2016 to 2013, 2013 to 2010/2003).

what's your exact version of InDesign? ( see menu About InDesign )
On what operating system?
Can you show a screenshot of your Word Import Options?
To add an inline image you have to use the forum editor.
( Unfortunately for some forum members JPEGs and PNGs cannot be inserted due to forum malfunction. I'm also affected, hope, you are not. )
I would like to know if the steps suggested above worked for you, or the issue still persists.
Kindly update the discussion if you need further assistance with it.
My sincerest apologies: not long after I posted this query I had some news that took me completely away from trying to find a solution for this.
In regards the solutions that you've all provided, it seems - in this case - that there is no fix. I say this as when I eventually got an opportunity to try the solutions, none worked.
When I pressed the client on whether he knew of any issues with the Word file, he replied "Oh everyone's had problems with it".
So, I think the file is likely irreparably corrupt. I've certainly never seen one this odd before.
In any event, I eventually cancelled the job as the client was becoming less and less helpful.
Real world stuff! *rollseyes*!
But my thanks to everyone who contributed, though.
I’m having the same problem. Footnotes are not imported, or rather, they are imported, but as "End comments", and they are placed in the very end of the InDesign-document. This is really worsening the functionality of InDesign. If anyone has a solution I’d be happy to read about it!
It seems InDesign reads footnotes and end comments as the same thing. Please fix this, this is so bad!
I’ve have your same footnotes’s problems. I’m in a big trouble.
Have you find some/solutions for this problem?
If anyone or Adobe staff have some solutions or idea, please write me!
Hi annaritad41959969 ,

does it help if you open the doc or docx file with your version of MS Word, save the file to a new name and import that?
