I placed word document in indesign.
However only one third of the footnotes have appearead and the rest is not. They dont appear in the body text either.
What could be the problem.I tried all the placing options , nothing is working
could be that a special character in the Word file will cause the issue.
What you can try: Instead a docx file format place a doc file format.
What's your version of InDesign?
What's your operating system?
What's the version of Word that created the document?

i tried everything to find the solution. but yes it seemd like there was a character on a particular page that disabled all the rest of the footnotes.
However i lost so much time that i had to DO THE DESIGN IN WORD. I do not recommend and im extremely disapointed in indesign...
Did you identify that special character?
This could be the core of a bug report you could do at InDesign UserVoice:
Also provide a sample docx file where you see the issue.
I would vote for a fix.

The same problem exists for languages that use the Cyrillic alphabet. Some footnotes always disappear. There is a non-standard solution to the problem: in Word, you need to replace all Cyrillic characters "K" (upper case "K") with some unused character (for example, "#"). Replace all these characters in the document! Then save a copy of the document and import it into InDesign. In InDesign, you need to replace all the symbols "#" with "K" back. Miraculously, all footnotes are transferred to InDesign.
Perhaps there will be a different solution for other linguistic scripts...
