At the end of my document there are two blank pages that I cannot
delete. When I try to delete them, the following message appears: "This is not a valid action for endnotes." Now I realize that Word thinks that my endnotes don't end until the bottom of the second blank page.

When I activate the end of line line symbol (sorry, I don't know the name of this symbol), the symbol appears throughout the two blank pages.

Now I'm trying to figure out why I can't backspace or delete these symbols from the two blank pages at the end of the document. Again, when I try to do so, the following error message prevents their deletion: "This is not a valid action for endnotes."

I think what I need to do at this point is declare to Word exactly where the Endnotes section ends. To do this, it seems like the following pathway would be helpful: insert / break / section break (next page).

The problem here is that all options within the "break" drop-down menu are greyed out and not selectable. I have placed the mouse cursor at the end of the Endnotes section to indicate where the section break should take place.

So at this point I'm stumped.
I can't seem to create a section break at the end of the Endnotes section, and thus, delete two blank pages that appear at the end of the document.

Thanks for any tips.

I don't have an answer for you but I do have a suggestion:

Ask the same question to one of the Mac Word 2008 MVPs who hang out in the Microsoft Mac Word forum. Great bunch of folks and very helpful.

I have had some success with the experts on this Word for Mac form, but not fully.

Beyond that, I did have some success with my endnotes problem today.
Here's what I did.

Switch to Normal view and use View | Footnotes to view the endnote pane.

In the drop-down menu that appears within the endnote pane I selected "Endnote
Separator," and this actually deleted one of the two blank pages at the end of my
document. Now I just have one blank page to deal with.

I tried the same procedure with the one remaining blank page but it didn't work a second time.

I guess I'll keep experimenting with things inside the endnotes pane.
That area seems to be the most productive for solving this problem.
