I have created a table in a "Word" document and described each column of it. Description came out to be too big, so I decided to move it down to the very end of the document. But I want the users to know that the description is still there in the document. What would be the most acceptable way to notify them?

I tried this:

  1. (go to the bottom of this document, to see the description of each column)

Does it sound a bit rude?

Should it be like:

  1. (please, go to the bottom of this document, to see the description of each column)

Or, perhaps, this would be better:

  1. (for the description of each column, refer to the bottom of this document)

None of these three sits right with me. What would you write in this case?

1

What would be the most acceptable way to notify them?

I am assuming you are writing this message in the footnote. I would write

"See page 30 for ..."

or

"See Annex I for ..."

You can use the term "appendix" too.

Note that in 1 and 2, the comma after "document" makes no sense to me.

  • Thanks, but what if it's not an annex and I am not sure about the precise number of the last page? Could I write something like "See the end of this document for..."? – brilliant Nov 18 at 4:01
  • You can insert page numbers in all word processors. I think "end" is better than "bottom", but it is still something that I would avoid. – AIQ Nov 18 at 4:09
  • "See below" seems like an idiomatic choice here, although it doesn't specifically mean "end." – TypeIA Nov 18 at 6:53
