Assume I have an article with a couple of footnotes

```
\documentclass{article}
\begin{document}
test\footnote{text}
\newpage
test\footnote{text}
\end{document}
```

How to resume the footnote counter from this document in another one, e.g. the next document should continue with footnote 3

One can use the `totcount` package to store the footnote counter in an auxiliary file:

```
\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{totcount}
\regtotcounter[auxfile=\jobname.tot]{footnote}

\begin{document}


test\footnote{text}

\newpage

test\footnote{text}

\end{document}
```

```
\documentclass{article}

\makeatletter
\input{document.tot}
\addtocounter{footnote}{\thefootnote@totc}
\makeatother

\begin{document}

test\footnote{text}

\end{document}
```
