It is essential to know what version of Word and Endnote your colleague used.  My recommendation (hindsight being 20/20) is that you always share an unformatted citation (curly bracketed) version.     I suspect that CWYW has been turned off, which is why you inserted the curly bracketed endnote citation, nothing happened.  You can see if this is the case by clicking on Format Bibliography and then clicking on the "instant formatting" tab and see if the button says "enable" or "disable". If "enable" then it isn't on.  If you turn it on, inserted references should now format.    Two, when two different versions of Endnote are used on a manuscript, there are a couple things that can happen.  One user may have the temporary citations set with square brackets and the other with curly.  Only one set might be picked up.  Often the whole thing can be fixed by selecting all, and unformating the endnote citations. If some are curly and some square do a search and replace. Of course,  their citations will no longer be available in the "traveling library" and you may need to get their library or download the references into your library. It sounds like they weren't in the traveling library anyway for some reason. (were they usuing pre-Endnote 8?)  (AND when you do manually unformat all the references, this turns off the instant formating and you have to turn it on again!)     There are many other tricks I use when sharing a manuscript with a colleague.  I save an extra copy and unlink (not unformat) the endnote references (select them and shift control F9), and then copy them into the a copy of the unformatted manuscript.  This way, my collaborator can see what refs I have included.  I have a style, that includes the record number so they can see which ref is which.    Let us know how it goes.

Help us help you by telling us which version of Endnote you are using.   I am not sure exactly, as I never use "endnotes" - perhaps you should be looking at the "footnote" formating for the styly you are using.    It is really important to read the online manual and get to grips with editting a style when it isn't producing exactly what you expect or want.  Select "edit, output styles, edit "your currently selected style name here".  There you can specify the why the author name is handled, lastfirst, or first last, etc) and the order of the items.  I doubt you will need to edit or create a new reference type, but if you do, that is handled thru the edit, preferences options.    Any more complicated instructions we might provide, won't make sense until you look there.    good luck and let us know how it goes!

I haven't been able to get in touch with him to ask about version numbers, but here's what I've figured out. My document apparently can't handle consecutive citations. So, if I format the bibliography or try to export a traveling library, only the single citations get noticed. Anything else like "23,25" or "4-6" is ignored. The fields remain in the document, but the corresponding references are removed from the bibliography or are not put in the new library. If I unformat the document, all the single citations are converted to curly-bracket form, but consecutive ones don't change.   Evidently, this is not a problem for him, as he was able to add the citation without a problem.   I will post more as I get more info... thoughts?

Formatted Word documents created using EndNote 8-X on one platform can not be transferred to the other platform.  When you have a citation with large amounts of data, which happens if you have multiple references in a citation, the data is stored in a format that EndNote on the other platform can not read.   If both people do not have EndNote X1, you must use the "Tools > EndNote > Unformat Citations" command before sending the document to the other user.   This issue was discovered after the release of EndNote X.  EndNote X1 was designed to understand the different formatting cause by the two different platforms.

I think we're both hesitant to upgrade to X1 while we're doing this, just to avoid another compatibility issue, but at least now it makes sense. We can just unformat and then reformat for now and that should be fine.   Thanks!

I experienced the same problem when trying to use this style to make an Excell file.   I do not remember the cause of this problem, but I was adviced to first export the library by using the style "EndNote export" to a .txt file and then import this file again back into a new EndNote library by using the filter "EndNote Import".   If you now try to export references from the new library by using the Tab Limited style the result should be better. At least I was able to convert the resulting file into Excell without any problems.   It is a long time since I did this, so I hope the above is understandable.    Best wishes   Jan Ove Rein, M.Sc.

It sounds as if your EndNote preferences are set to automatically add journal names  to the Journals Term list. If entries get into this list in the wrong case or as abbreviations: this is what you will be offered by autocomplete. It is easy to go to edit the Journals Term list, with your EndNote library open, go to Tools, then Open Term List and select Journals term list from the list of options. Find the entry you want to change, and with it highlighted click the "Edit Term ..." button, correct the entry in the full title box and then click OK to save changes. Occassionally OK will be grayed out, the easiest way to make it active is to put an abbreviation in the first abbreviate title box.

Hello,   EndNote libraries can be used on different computers.  If the library was created with EndNote 8 or higher, you need to transfer both the .enl file and the .Data folder for the library.  So if your library was called "Library" you would transfer the "Library.enl" file and "Library.Data" folder to the other computer.   Starting with EndNote X, you can simplify this by going to "File > Send To > Compressed Library" when you have the library open in EndNote.  This will create a single .enlx file.  You can then transfer just the .enlx file to the other computer.   Mac and Windows libraries are compatible with each other as they are in the same format.

Hello:   This is usually the hallmark of an outdated import filter. If you are using a version of EndNote that is X or earlier, you may want to download and install a new filter from here:    http://endnote.com/support/enfilters.asp   If you are using EndNote X1, however, you should have a fairly recent filter already installed. If it doesn't appear to be working, or if you've updated the filter already and are still having trouble, EndNote may be looking in the wrong place for its filters. Let's check:   - In EndNote, click Edit>Preferences (On a Mac, that'd be EndNote>Preferences) - Click Folder Locations - Click on the EndNote Defaults button and "Yes" if prompted. Then click OK (or Save and then close on the Mac). Try the import again.  Does that help?

Hello:   The "messy data" problem is usually caused by carriage returns in your library. The tab-delimited format interprets every place the "Enter" key was hit in your library as a break, and then it makes a new line.   EndNote X does have a way to strip these carriage returns out, however, this change is PERMANENT and may change your library formatting. We therefore suggest that you perform these steps only on a backup copy of your library.   1. Create a backup copy of your library by clicking File>Save a Copy 2. Close your current library and open the backup instead. 3. Click Edit>Change Text. 4. Make sure Any Field is selected in the pulldown. 5. Place your cursor in the Search For field and click the Insert Special button. Select Carriage Return. 6. Leave the Change Text To field blank.  7. Click Change.   Once that is done, try exporting the tab-delimited file from that copy of the library. It should import more cleanly.   The other method mentioned on this thread of exporting in RIS and then importing into a new library will often work as well, but many people find the solution I outlined above a little simpler. In either case, please be certain not to overwrite your original library.   I hope this helps!

Hello, Jaysonlf:   I see the field you're referring to, and it shouldn't be a problem to send it to a custom field. I will provide instructions on that down below.   As a side note, though, I do have a related concern. According to your link, the requirements for including the NIHMS ID in documents seem to be conditional... IF there's no PMCID, THEN add the NIHMS ID instead. This isn't a problem for import, but it is a style issue; EndNote doesn't really have a way to include things in the bibliography on a conditional basis. It's either there in the bibliography all the time, or it's not included. You will have to decide whether it makes more sense to edit your style to always include the NIHMS and then later take out any that aren't needed, or if it'd be easier to just manually add them later where they are needed.    That said, let's return to our import issue. Here's how to manually edit your filter to bring in the NIHMS ID: In EndNote, click Edit>Import Filters>Open Filter Manager. Find PubMed (NLM) and highlight it. Click Edit Click on Templates. Scroll to the bottom of the templates and put your cursor after the last character of the last line. Hit the Enter key to make a new line. Enter the tag in question in the Tag box of the new line. In this case, if you look at a text file downloaded from PubMed in Medline style, you'll see the tag for that is     MID- Hit your tab key to get to the next box, and then use the Insert Field pull-down at the top of the screen to select the field in EndNote that you'd like the NIHMS ID to be imported into. Click File>Save and then try the import again. What happens?

Direct export from Ovid databases works in an unusual manner. The file of records sent from Ovid identifies the correct filter in your Filters folder by using two tags of data in each record. At the moment, EndNote is finding the wrong filter for you.   You say that the import works OK if you download references and choose a filter. This means that you have the correct filter in your Filters folder, and you know which filter it is. The problem is to remove from the Filters folder the "wrong" filter which is causing the problem.   In EndNote, click on Edit>Import Filters>Open Filter Manager.  Use the "Find By" button to find all the Ovid filters. Try deleting the Autoalerts filter (right click>Delete Filter). See if the direct export works correctly now.

Most of the "Edit Citation" functions only apply to author/date styles, such as Harvard or APA. They won't work with footnote styles. There is normally no need to exclude author or date with a footnote style. If you need to add text before a citation in a footnote, you simply type the text in the footnote. If you need to add a page number after a citation, the "Pages" box in the Edit Citations dialogue should do this for you.

Thanks for the reply, but I'm still perplexed. I recently migrated from Reference Manager to EndNote, and in Reference Manager it definitely was possible to exclude at least the author from citations in footnotes. I was really surprised that EndNote didn't seem to have the same functionality - or else that I couldn't easily figure out how to make it work. The ability to exclude the author is useful when you've already mentioned the author's name in the footnote, for instance.   It's especially vital, though, for journal formats that use an author/date style in the footnotes, such as the journal International Organization. It puts author/date citations in the footnotes and not in the body of the text, e.g. (in footnote x) Austin 1999. These need to work the same way that in-text author/date citations work, and sometimes that means suppressing the author, as in cases where you have text like this in the footnote: "As Austin (1999) notes, this is blah blah..."

I'm still not clear on this. Either that or I didn't explain myself clearly enough and we're not talking about the same thing. :-)   Firstly, myself and my colleague are both on Endnote X.   All I have is the Word doc (incl embedded travelling library). The doc was sent formatted, but I can unformat it back to curly bracket citations.   I want to add new references to the document (ie works that do not appear in the travelling library). I do not have the original full Endnote library (PhD.enl) that my colleague used (I could possibly get it, but I want to know first if I really have to).   So say there are refs up to #100 in the travelling library. I want to add #101. Can I do that ?   It occurs to me that maybe I can only do it by exporting the travelling library and adding #101 to that ? Then how do I 're-attach' that to the document, with or without 'displacing' the original library (PhD.enl) from 'libraries used' ? What happens when I send this document back to my colleague .- should / can he easily add my new refs to his original library (PhD.enl) ?   Finally, is any of this process described anywhere in the documentation (I couldn't find it, at least not quickly) ? :-)

You DO NOT want to format it back to curly bracketed citations, as that removes the travelling library (TL).  The library is embedded in the paper.  If you ever reveal field codes (from tools, options, general - a tick box), you will see a bunch of gobbledy gooook - which includes everything that is needed to reformat the paper's references with the new information.    You simply insert your new reference from your library into their copy of the formatted paper.  If CWYW is on, it will automatically update the references adding the 101st reference.  If it is off, then manually format with the "format bibliography" toolbar button or endnote tools.  The only problem might be, if you don't have a custom endnote style used by your colleague (and for all I know, that might be in the travelling library too!).  You do not need their copy of the library.    If you extract the travelling library, it has different numbers and won't match those in the paper, but it is an easy way to incorporate the references into your own library for future use in future papers.    There is no need for him to incorporate it into his library unless he wants it.    If you send the formatted paper back to your colleague, your reference will be embedded in the TL of the paper.  If he wants that reference in his library, he can retrieve the travelling library (into a new library) and import it into his Phd.enl library being sure to discard duplicates (if there are many) or just drag and drop the new reference into his own library (if it is only one or two).   It again won't be the same record number, so the manuscript will "remember" your reference from the travelling library.    If you search Endnote's Help for "travel", the explanation may be clearer than mine...

Hi Gillian.   Yes, that modification seems to work. However, I'd prefer the NIHMSID to be included as a separate field, such as custom 3, so that there is a spot to include it and use it, if necessary.   Maybe conditional logic in styles can be an enhancement for EN X3.

Hello:   While it is not strictly necessary -- as Leanne said, it is possible to continue adding references even without the original -- we actually do recommend sending the EndNote library along with the document.  The reason why is because it is generally a good idea to unformat and reformat the document as you're working to make sure that the most recent information from your libraries is incorporated in the paper. Otherwise, alterations and corrections made to the EndNote libraries may not reflect in the paper's text. However, once unformatted, it can be very challenging to reformat without the original library.   Sending the EndNote library from and to EndNote X or X1 is really simple; please follow the instructions here on using compressed libraries:   http://endnote.com/support/faqs/Database/faq6.asp   Once you have all the library references, you can work on the paper as you normally would.     I hope this helps! Let me know if anything about this is not clear.

One workaround I have used for this kind of thing, is to create a new reference type which has an output with the alternative information in the style for that ref type.    Search library for a blank in PMCID and ref type "journal article" (probably add year range, for recent) and then change the reference type to the alternative reference type where the style will output the NIHMS ID instead. If an article gets a PMCID assigned, you wil need to alter the record to include that information and you can then also alter the ref type at the same time.

Make a new copy of the document (using windows, if you can't do it in word).     Are there any tracked changes?  If so - accept them.  Endnote8 and tracked changes don't play nice with each other.  If that doesn't fix it...   if you can, unformat the document (don't  "remove" endnote fields, just return to bracket non-CWYW!).  save it to a new name.    Then delete the references, if there are any.  With Paragraph symbols showing (button on word toolbars which looks like a P with double upright). Copy everything but the last paragraph symbol to a new document.  Now try to reformat.    If that doesn't work and you have been able to unformat the document, try removing all field codes (ctrl, shift f9).  repeat above copy past to new document.

Hi Gary    The simplest solution is to input the required words (master's thesis, doctoral thesis, doctoral dissertation, etc.) in the Thesis Type field. Of course, this will make the references less usable for other referencing styles, as other styles are likely as not to treat theses and dissertations in different ways.   APA itself is pretty complex in the ways it handles different types of print and electronic theses (Publication manual exx. 54-57; APA style guide to electronic references 8-10). This complexity can be accommodated in EndNote by using a range of referencing types (Journal Article [exx. 54, 55], Thesis [exx. 56-57]; Electronic Book [exx. 8-9], and Web Page [ex. 10]) - though, in saying that, we have corrected the APA output style for Electronic book and Web page to better match the published APA style guides.   A final comment is that theses is yet another example of when it would be helpful if EndNote had the ability to apply conditional logic (if ... then ...) within output styles' templates.   Cheers, John

Hello, Amy-L:   There's a setting sort of like this in the output style. While I don't believe it's in exactly the format you say, it will group together references, so you may want to try it.   In EndNote, use the Edit menu to select Output Styles and then Open Style Manager. Type the first few letters of the style you are using. Scroll to it, select it, and then click Edit. If on a Mac, click the arrow next Citations, and then select Numbering. If on Windows, click on Numbering under Citations. Place a check in the box under Grouped References Save the style and close it It will then group under a single bibliography number any citations that are always cited together.  Try it... does it help?

I believe my need at the time was to be able to keep a specific field intact (like the record number), but also to copy its contents into another field that I could then append with a letter or sequence for tracking/matching to PDF names.   Options?    BTW, when will Endnote roll out the exciting >50 group patch?   Thanks!!

I know this goes a little beyond the scope of EndNote, but here is some information on the NIHMSID (MID as you called it) and why it doesn't show up in PubMed.  The NIHMSID is assigned when the article is submitted through the NIH Manuscript Submission System (by the author) or sent in an email to the author after the journal sends it to the NIH Manuscript Submission System. Since the article is not necessarily available to the public in PubMed Central right away, the NIHMSID does not appear in the citation in PubMed. The NIHMSID will appear in PubMed Central after it is released (up to 12 months later) but at that time the PMCID is also given, so it's not much help.   Just fyi as of May 30, the PMCID appears in that record now too, so I do see the MID in the MEDLINE format or the record.  I have never seen PubMed list the MID without the PMCID, so I'm not sure they list it before the record has a PMCID.  Please correct me if I am wrong as I am the Instruction Librarian for my campus and need to know how to correctly follow NIH guidelines.

That's a good point about the order in which the ID numbers are assigned. I may not worry so much about importing the NIHMSID, but I can see the value of having a separate EN field for users to record the NIHMSID to use for reporting until the PMCID is assigned.  In reality, I may just be over-thinking this.  ;-)

Despite appearing in a section headed "Elements to Include in References to Electronic Sources", I believe that the new rule to include issue numbers (whenever availabe) applies to any journal, electronic or print.   This is why I think so: The relevant paragraph on p. 2 of the APA style guide to electronic references [ASGER] does not explicitly limit the change to electronic journals. Furthermore, the change is to a rule that appears on p. 227 of the APA publication manual, which is outside the section (4.16, pp. 268-281) updated by ASGER. Finally, the following paragraph in ASGER discusses the importance of consistency of referencing style in the currently environment of machine indexing, so an inconsistency between print and electronic journal article referencing would be very odd.   Cheers, John

Hello,   The letter assignment is done based on the sort order of your bibliography.  Your references in the bibliography will be sorted, typically apathetically then by year and by the title.  If you have ambiguous citations the 'a' will be applied to the reference that comes first in the bibliography, this will make sure that your bibliography remains in order.  Otherwise your bibliography would appear out of order.

I don't think there is   In order to manage the table of content, you need to merge the word documents after having formated your endnote bibliographies. This should occur at the end of writing   It may cause some difficulties because the document is then heavy (Word freezing)   A tip could be removing the word field codes before merging word documents. Just take care about - text formating (I somtimes lost it) - working on a copy: it will not be possible to unformat the bibliography of a document where field codes were removed

To do so... 1)  Open EndNote 2)  Click the Edit Menu 3)  Click Output Styles 4)  Click Open Style Manger 5)  Find and double-click APA 5th on the list 6)  Click "Templates" under the Bibliography heading 7)  Find "Electronic Article" and see if it lists "Journal" or "Periodical Name" in the template for that reference type. If it lists Journal, then delete the word Journal.  With the cursor in the location where the Journal field identifier used to be, click the Insert Field button (upper right corner) and click "Periodical Name".  You may need to italicize Periodical Name after inserting it.  Then, Save and close the style.   Additionally, does this occur with any other Electronic Articles you've entered, or just this one who's Periodical Name begins with "Journal"?   Thanks,

Hello mdhughes72,   The problem is that you don't have a separator to isolate Cited Pages from the rest of the format. The format you'll need is as follows...   (Author, Year[forced separation]:[link adjacent text]Cited Pages[forced separation])   This will make certain that the YEAR isn't linked to the Colon, and instead, the Colon will be tied to Cited Pages. The forced separation following Cited Pages will ensure that if there are no cited pages, everything properly linked to cited pages will be dropped from the format.   I hope this helps.

There's not a single example of the use of [Electronic Version] in the APA style guide to electronic references - and so I believe "[Electronic Version]" is no longer used in APA-style referencing. Instead, where relevant, a more descriptive note (without [ ]) is added after the pages and before the retrieval statement, e.g. "Advance online publication." or "Manuscript in publication."   So according to the new APA 5th rules (cf. example 2 on p. 7 of the style guide, which is an ejournal like this one), this reference should not have any descriptive note, and would be   Polly, P. D. (2004). On the simulation of the evolution of morphological shape: Multivariate shape under selection and drift. Journal of Palaeontologia Electronica, 7(2). Retrieved from http://palaeo-electronica.org/2004_2/evo/issue2_04.htm   Furthermore, the EndNote APA 5th output style should not have [ ] always surrounding the Type of Article field, as this punctuation is almost invariably absent now.   Cheers, John

Reference Type "Electronic Article" should work if the template is correct (see SteveH's post 6/6 above). Do not include a date of retrieval (another change made in APA style guide to electronic references - retrieval dates are not included unless the item has no date), nor fill in Type of Work.   (As it happens, for the APA 5th output style we have made the template for "Journal Article" and "Electronic Article" identical [mutatis mutandis], since it is debatable whether such a distinction is applicable any more in this referencing style. It's worth keeping both referencing types in EndNote, though, as if you need to change to another style that style may handle print and electronic articles differently).   Cheers, John

How are you sorting now?  just by year - or by some specialized field?      If it were me, for this specialized situration, I would let Endnote sort them 1 - 150 and then remove field codes and ask Word to sort the paragraphs in the reverse order.    Another option would be to make a custom field and manually enter the number you want the reference to have and then reverse sort on that field.  -but that seems like more trouble than it is worth, unless you are somehow forcing the order by a custom field (number) already.

What style are you using?  Is this a case where there are two Williams in 1998 and the style is dictating that they need to be "unabiguated" (is that a word?) by inclusion of the authors initials?    Part two, question:  I am not exactly sure why you are trying to lose the open parenthesis, but could you achieve what you want by inserting the reference and hide year and author (no reference) or make the reference hidden text?    But, if "citation" should be the citation?  In which case the unformated reference should look like {see\Lastname #RecNo, YEAR for details}.

Regarding the first authors initials - (K.R. Williams & Guerra, 1998)....I saw a similar problem about a week ago.  Most in-text citaitons were formatting correclty, that is without first initials.  However one or two included the first initials, even though it was the same autho r- e.g. (Smith, 2008) but also (L.L. Smith, 2007).  This was EndNote's way of distinguishing two different authors, except that the authors were the same person.  After looking at the specific record that generated the first initials, I discovered there was a <space> after the authors's name in the EndNote  record.  EndNote was reading this as a different author. Once we corrected the offending EndNote records, the manuscript formatted correctly.

Yep, I've got the same exact problem.  Seems to happen even if EndNote is not running (suggesting, perhaps a problem in the Word 2007 macros...?).   Anyway, what I did was simply go to the Office Buttion/Word Options/Add Ins/Manage COM Add Ins and the disabled 'Cite While You Write' add-in.  This fixed the problem so that I could address the comments. Then I can turn the Review pane off and the 'Cite While You Write' add-in back on to deal with references.   It's definately a bug, and an unacceptable one as well.  Giving the generic 'Unspecified Error' is either sloppy coding or they have a catch-all error handle and EndNote is doing somethign that the programmers aren't aware of.   Hopefully it will be fixed in a future release; it's quite annoying.   -Paul

Endnote's help functions and the PDF manual discuss how this MIGHT be achieved.  In EndnoteX it is on pg 189 of the PDF manual (installed in your endnote directory) or search the help for "Creating Structured Text Files that EndNote Can Import". In my experience, if you have access to a database, it is much easier to import directly from the database than tweaking a text file.

I would be surprised if adding the page number in the "edit citation" suffix field didn't work.  That is the way I usually add page numbers or any other text and it shouldn't require any special editing of the style template.    However, to use the "cited pages" field, you also need to edit the selected style in the "citation template" to include the "cited pages" field in the citation, with the appropriate "link adjacent" and "forced separation" punctuation, -- all of  which can be inserted from the "insert field" menu.    (Author, Year[forced separation]:[link adjacent text]Cited Pages[forced separation])

I have met with the same problem like yours. But what I am using is  Word 2007 rather than Word 2003. As long as a Word  document containes several cited references, the Word program slows down. Furthermore, the more references a doc document cantains, the slower the Word 2007 becomes. Sometimes the Word will stop responding for 2-3 minutes after a little change has been made to a document. I have switched off instant formatting too.   When I used Word 2003 before, I have not met with this problem.  My notebook PC configuration: ThinkPad T60, Intel Core 2 CPU T7200, 1G memory.

I should mention that the problem affects primarily the cursor keys, or the delete key. I can type without problem, and pressing and holding (for example) 'a' works as one would expect and does not produce the flickering hourglass. It looks like Word is still communicating with Endnote at certain points (i.e. after the press of a cursor key) and this is slowing things down.

I reinstalled the Endnotes Add-in in Word 2007 and think I have isolated the problem.  When I insert a citation in the footnote, the citation is inserted not only in footnote form, but, immediately afterwards and in the same footnote, in bibliographic form.  In other words, normally the bibliography is inserted at the end of Word.  But when the citation is inserted in a footnote, the bibliography appears at the end of the footnote.  This, of course, is completely unacceptable, but I don't know how to shut off the automatic bibliographic formatting.  The manual says that the way to get rid of bibliographies is to delete them.  But this is impractical when the bibliography shows up in each footnote.  I need to format my footnotes in Chicago Style, so changing the style is not an option.  Chicago B gets rid of the footnotes but not the bibliographies, which is the opposite of what I need.  What would be ideal is a Chicaga C style that kept the footnotes and got rid of the bibliography.  What a crazy bug!

Hi Eric, I had exactly the same problem with the same configuration you have...and spent 8 hrs trying to solve it. I just got it to work...I had missing some registry permissions. Make sure you have administrative rights for the following registry folders.   HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Sophos HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Interface HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes\Typelib   Login as admin, find the folders in regedit, right-click each folder and make sure that Administrators have full control. In my case the folder HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Classes had no permission added. I added Administrators with full perimissions. Just to be sure: the second thing I did was uninstalling Sophos antivirus. Then I reinstalled Endnote. The 'Configure Endnote' program still has greyed buttons, but the word implementation works. Good luck. Hannes

Thank you very much for your help. We have a volume license of the endnot, so it shouldn't be a permission problem.

In regard to - "Is there any limitation on the length of the name of the PDF file?" - EndNote does not have its own specific limit. However, the Windows operating system typically imposes a limit to the overall length of a file "path" to a maximum of 244-260 characters - depending on the exact conditions/version of the operating system. EndNote's attached files are impacted by this Windows limitation as are nearly all other files used on a Windows-based computer.   I would recommend moving the PDF / or the EndNote library (including .data folder) in question to a location that is not deeply nested in a set of folders and see if this resolves the issue.

Searches in which you want to define specific fields to search (such as KWs)  are done one library at a time, however, if you want a general search, use "find citation" from Word's EndNote toolbar, as it searches all the open libraries, including the embedded the travelling library.  This isn't so helpful if you want an author name such as "Li" which brings up far too many hits, though as it brings up any record with the "li" letter combination.

Thanks Peter,   Your suggestion definitely helped narrow the search.  However, I could not get the "make read-only" trick to work.  No matter what when Word restarted, even with "Office Registration Cache 11" as read-only, I would get the same error.   However, our local linux guru helped try a few things to no avail: >redirect the local ~/Library/Preferences/Microsoft to the remote ~/  >redirect the remote user's ~/Library/Preferences/Microsoft back to the local user's ~/ directory   For some reason, Word will not follow the links.   What finally worked was creating a "cleanup" shell script which deletes all known copies of "Office Registration Cache 11."  This runs as an OS login item (modifying .bashrc created issues with X11 apps) and requires the user to run every time after quitting or before starting Word.  Ugly but effective.   Thanks again for your input!

Hey Rob, I'm doing the same thing (writing thesis with multiple chapters) and was looking for a way to do the exact same thing.  I also have the table of contents that gets messy when you add chapters at a later time.  I'll give you my solution to the problem, it takes a little time but leaves everything the way we want it in the end.   first i write my thesis how i want it, leaving space after the 'reference' section of each chapter.  then, when i'm ready I format my bibliography, which will change the appearance of the citations in the text and place the entire biblio at the end of the document.  I then deleted the entire biblio at the end.  I copied each individual chapter into it's own word document, unformatted the biblio and then formatted it again giving me a biblio at the end of each of these separate documents.  i then copied only the biblio from these separate documents and pasted them in the reference section of each chapter in the thesis.    This should work for any of the citations forms where you use author's name and year instead of numbers.  However, if you use numbers for your citations it will require an extra copy and paste of the entire chapter and then you'll probably lose the formatting as you've experienced.   I know that probably doesn't help, it'd be much easier if endnote would recognize the number of users that are actually writing thesis/dissertations and made this change in their programing.   happy writting!

Thank you all for your kindly help. It maybe caused by too long name of the PDF file. However, the long name of the PDF was accepted by winXP. When I insert the PDF file, the endnote accepted this PDF without any warning, but it cannot launch URL to reopen the PDF after I restart the database. Maybe this can be solved in future?

I found the reason now. When insert PDF with long name, sometimes Endnote copies and cuts the file name to "...~1", but the URL is still using the full name. Hope this bug can be fixed soon.

We tried editing the .bashrc to include an app call to Word, and it didn't work.  I wasn't doing the heavy lifting on the Linux side, so not sure what he tried for that.   You could possibly add some sort of folder action or other Finder script to lauch the clean script, then run Word...

You can combine the bash script and applescript.  Since Mac OSX is based on FreeBSD, you can create a bash script to delete the file.  Then you can make an applescript to call the script and then start Word.  Though thinking about it, you could do it all with applescript, just replace the first line with the applescript for deleting the file, which I can not think of off the top of my head:   do shell script "/path_to_script/rm_reg_cache.sh"  tell application "Finder" open application file "Microsoft Word" of folder "Microsoft Office 2004" of folder "Applications" of startup disk end tell

Well, we've created a link in the user's home to point to the local Endnote library, so Endnote doesn't complain.   But thinking on it further it might make sense that since Word refused to follow symbolic links, if the library isn't already open in EN then the whole works gums up.   Worth a try, thanks!  I'll look into that.

 Where are your PDFs stored now?  Are the preferences set to leave them where they were (absolute pointers) or is the box ticked in preferences (URLs and PDFs, or something like that) to move them to the relative folder (PDF folder).  If they are in their original locations, you should first  "convert (them) to relative links"  from the references menu before compressing.

While adding new references to a document with a traveling library works as described above, I have not found a way to integrate the new reference with a string of existing references in the text.  For example, say the text had citations "[3,4]", and a new reference is added.  When reformatted, the text citation will appear as "[3,4] [5]", rather than the ideal "[3-5]".  A small price to pay for the convenience of a traveling library maybe, but does anyone know of a solution to this? Thanks

If you remove the space between them, it should format properly. (tested in EndnoteX)

We upgraded our entire institution from Endnote7 to Endnote X (network version  and individual licenses on laptops) about two years ago.  We found EndnoteX to be very stable with the only annoying bugs being incompatibility with some plugins including Flashpaper and Snag-it and the fact that formated documents on Mac and Windows were not compatible across the two platforms (these two issues were fixed for most part X1) .      The formated documents and librarys are not backward compatible but we had no issues that I am aware of with the library conversion.     We found that  it helps to unformat documents in Endnote 7 prior to migration, or to unformat them in EndnoteX and reformat them. Once formated with Endnote 8 or above (don't get 8, as it was a very buggy product), you cannot handle them in Endnote 7 anymore.   If you collaborate extensively, even with the travelling library and both authors using post Endnote8 products, it is probably still safest to share unformated documents.  When ready to submit, share the libraries or have one format a copy (ignoring items not in their library) and send to the other for the final Endnote formating with their library.     Perhaps someone can comment on similar experiences going from 7 to X1 (or now  X2).  On the whole, I believe most people at our institute like X better than Endnote7. In a recent quick test, I didn't find any issues openning, unformating and reformating Endnote 7 documents in the newest X2 version.  I also had no trouble converting a library of over 5000 records.

I may be in a Monday fog, but you don't want to apply two styles to one paper.  The better choice is to modify the style that meets most of your needs.  If your Ref2 is designated as Reference Type Electronic Article it should style correctly in any style that is also styling Journal Article (the Output Style must have Electronic Article in the Bibliography/Template when you examine/edit the style)..   The ACS style you mention has Electionic Article as a reference type so it should style correctly..However you don't have some of the data that appears in the bibliography such as Date Accessed so perhaps your reference for AFP is Journal Article instead of Electronic article?  Just flip the Reference Type in the AFP record to Electronic Article and you'll see the additional fields where you can add the data..   also, make sure your Author is entered as AFP (Agence France Presse), NOTE the ending comma which is EndNote's clue to treat the Author as a string/phrase   have a nice day, virginia

Daniela, Check to make sure Endnote is pointing to the styles directory in which your cutsom style file resides:  Endnote > Edit > Preferences > File Locations. I have several versions of Endnote on my computer for troubleshooting purposes, and depending on the version I am working with, I temporarily "lose" output styles due to the program pointing to a different version's style folder.   Emily

The EndNote X1 patch for Word 2008 should be installed after the Word 2008 Service Pack 1 (12.1)  has been installed. If you installed the patch first and then the Service Pack for Word, I would suggest removing "EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle" from the "Microsoft Office 2004:Office:Startup:Word" folder and then downloading and running the EndNote X1 patch again. Be sure to follow the steps posted on the patch download page: http://www.endnote.com/support/CWYW_Word_2008.asp       *  Download the file "CWYW_Word_2008.dmg" (File Size: 3 MB).     * Close EndNote and Microsoft Word 2008.     * Double-click the "CWYW_Word_2008.dmg" file to mount.     * Double-click the "CWYW For Word 2008.pkg" file to start the installer.     * Follow the installer prompts to update Word 2008.

All updates were already done when I installed the patch. I followed exactly the steps posted on the patch download page,  but nothing happened. I was using Endnote X1 with Office X and there was no problem. I tried to uninstall Office X, no results. I installed again Office 2008, then Endnote X1, there are still no communication between the 2 softwares. And when I choose the "Customizer" in Endnote menu, whatever I do, the line with CWYW remains unchecked. When I try to run  EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle directly, it opens Word but again nothing happens.

I completely reinstalled Endnote X1 and the patch. I activated the "Endnote CWYW Commands.dot" and so I get the tool bar und menu. But again, nothing happens when I'm clicking. Maybe it has something to do with a university licence or anything else? It's really frustrating.

There may be a conflict with another software application as mentioned in this Frequently Asked Question:   http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/CWYW/faq11.asp   Knowing the files listed under Tools > Templates and Addins would help determine if this might be related.

This may sound stupid, but: I had a similar problem some weeks ago - instead of the Web Export Helper a popup window appeared, saying my references had been saved, but I couldn't find them on my PC. Then I realised I had Zotero running in my Browser. Zotero suppressed the Web Export Helper, generated the popup and imported the references into its own database. Maybe your user also has the Zotero (or a similar) plugin installed?   Regards   Martin de la Iglesia

Click on the Tools menu and select Templates and Addins. 4. Highlight each EndNote file listed and click Remove 5. Click OK 6. Close and re-open Word to confirm nothing is listed under Tools > Templates and Addins before closing Word again 7. Copy the EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle from "Applications > EndNote X1 > Cite While You Write" to  "Microsoft Office 2008 > Office > Startup > Word" 8. Make sure your EndNote library is open 9. Launch Word 10. Try using the tools    These three items should now be listed under Global Templates and Addins if the commands are working:   EndNote CWYW Commands.dot (checked) EndNote Web CWYW Commands.dot (unchecked)  EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle (checked)

I suspect that this might have something to do with the database: if the journals names are not listed then it won't should show up appropriatedly? Thanks.   Zhicheng

Did you first delete the existing journal terms? If they are unusual journals, you might have to edit the terms list to include them manually.  Also, you might prefer to use the journal lists that John East has compiled.  See http://www.library.uq.edu.au/endnote/journal_terms.html for more information.

Here is what I would suggest, close Word and browse to this folder on your system:   Users:[your login name with the house icon]:Library:Application Support:EndNote   In addition to other files, you should have "EndNote CWYW Command.dot" and "EndNote Web CWYW Command.dot" here. If not, copy these two files from the Applications > EndNote X1 > Cite While You Write folder to that folder.   Now open Word. If the tools are still not present, click on the Word menu and select Preferences. Click on File Locations and highlight Startup. Click on Modify and set this to the Word 2008 startup folder which typically is "Microsoft Office 2008:Office:Startup:Word." Click Choose and then OK. Close Word and re-open it to see if the tools are now present.

I am not even getting to the point of having this problem because I can't get CWYW to install at all.  It tells me Word 2008 is running even though it isn't.  I've tried restarting a number of times and re-downloading CWYW, but the newer version also tells me Word 2008 is running.  I've tried this running NO programs other than the installer.

First you should try to figure out if there is a startup folder in your preferences in word. Go to Word preferences --> file loacations. If there is no folder mentioned right to the Startup click on left, click on choose and got to:   Microsoft Office 2008 > Office > Startup > Word   There should be only the file with .bundle at the end. Close Word and open.   If that does not work, got to:   Users:[your login name with the house icon]:Library:Application Support:EndNote   and put "EndNote CWYW Command.dot" and "EndNote Web CWYW Command.dot" in tht folder. Now reopen word again.   Should work.

This message can appear if the Cite While You Write (CWYW) tools from a previous version of EndNote are in the Word startup folder. To fix this problem, close Word browse to the Word startup folder. The default location of Startup depends on your version of Windows.   Windows Vista: C:\Users\[YOUR USER NAME]\AppData\Roaming\Microsoft\Word\STARTUP Windows XP/2000: C:\Documents and Settings\[YOUR USER NAME]\Application Data\Microsoft\Word\Startup   Note: If you cannot find the specified folder, your Windows preferences may be set to hide the folder. In Windows Explorer go to Tools / Folder Options / View tab and make sure that "Show hidden files and folders" is selected. Press Alt to view menus in Windows Vista.   Delete any EndNote files in this folder. Now when you use EndNote X1, you should not receive this error message.

I would recommend using the account for one of the universities, and have EndNote search for the full text.  Then change the account information to the second account and search on the references that still do not have the full text.

Thanks for the pointer Martin.   Zotero is installed and I did wonder what it was.  I will need to await the user's return before proceeding with an uninstall of the Mozilla plugin.   More investigation has revealed that the problem with the saving of the citation information only seems to apply to the *.ris files which Science Direct uses and only for Mozilla for the user concerned.  OVID files from alternative databases don't appear to be captured by Zotero either. My user profile on the computer does not have the addon of Zotero and does not have the same problem.   It appears that there is continuing discussion of this problem and possible solutions on the Zotero forums at http://forums.zotero.org/discussion/3122/   I will advise of the solution when the user returns.   Harvey

I followed the suggestions from the Zotero forum and have listed them below in a shorter form.   They work!  (:-), so others may wish to follow if they want to continue using EndNote.    Method 1.

It really puzzled me for your replay!   Firstly, Our subscription to Wos is based on IP adress,  not University account.   And also my preference for endnote web is contain the url: http://www.myendnoteweb.com   and my account for endnote web, It can work well, include transfer the references to endnoteweb, orupdate my references.   I do puzzled, from the "open url" link I can easily find the fulltext, why endnote x2 cann't. Does anythink go wrong in   the setting,should I change something.

Try adapting RefMan (RIS) export style which is similar to the ISI format? It can obviously only export the information you have included in the records and I am not sure all of the fields you list are routinely copied into the endnote library.  Depends on your connect or filter settings.     You might also try adapting the Endnote export style, as it might include all the fields, and then you just need to adapt the leading characters.

Maybe the problems that we were having were related to some other bug? (Although the problems stopped once we disabled one setting while using the other.) We were working with Word 2007 and Word XP on Windows with EndNote X.

Also, I'm not sure that that problem describes the experiences that we were having. As soon as the users installed EndNote X and used it in her Word 2007 file, Word would freeze and ultimately crash. One user noticed that the problem went away after she uninstalled EndNote X (because the problem, for her started as soon as she installed EndNote). Once she reinstalled it, she noticed the problem again so we researched it online and found users who advised us not to use Instant Formatting with Track Changes. Once we adopted that practice, the problem went away.

the only way that would make any sense, would be to create or select a style that includes the abstract and view the individual records in the preview portion of the window at the bottom of the library screen.  Otherwise, if you edit the display fields to use the abstract field you see a limited view of the first words of the abstract in line, in the record listing.

Author order in  bibliographies are specified in the style you are using.  Edit your output style (which is under references, edit, output style: (default is the name of the selected style).  Go to the bibliography section, author name, and you want them to say first author: Smith, Jane and other authors: Doe, John (at least in EndnoteX- isn't it nice that they represent both sexes and that the woman is on ...a-hem... top? -- there must have been some females on the development team!)

Thanks for responding.  I'm pretty sure I've configured the "Normal" style correctly, though. The Normal style is using Adobe Caslon Pro (the font I want).  The rest of the body text uses the Normal style and is in the correct font. And when I select citations and re-apply the Normal style, they are changed from the wrong font to the right font.  As far as I can tell, EndNote is creating it's own version of the "Normal" style that uses a different font.   -Richard

The easiest options are (1) generate a new traveling library every time you pass the document back and forth; (2) Keep two libraries.  the second option is the preferred method for many of my reasearchers.  For the latter, each collaborator needs to make sure she/he passes on the most current library (including associated .data subfolder). I have instructions for these options at http://chemistry.library.wisc.edu/writing/endnote.html#collaborative-writing.   Emily

The bug, however, still occurs.   Since there are many viewing this post, could someone let me know if they are having the same problems? It woluld really help!    Following is the reponse I received and my recent request for further help ...       ---------------- We have confirmed the EndNote X1 Cite While You Write (CWYW) tools do work for Word 2008 with the 12.1.1 patch installed. I would suggest manually installing the tools by following all the steps found here: http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/CWYW/faq1.asp#macENX1WORD2008 Let us know if you need any further assistance ----------------   The instructions to that the link leads to are:   ----------------   Macintosh EndNote X1 & Word 2008 Q: How can I get the Mac EndNote X1 CWYW commands to appear in Microsoft Word 2008 under the Tools menu? A: Get the update here. If after installing the Word 2008 SP1 update and the EndNote X1 CWYW 2008 update the tools still do not appear: Close Word and EndNote. Open your hard drive and go to Applications:EndNote X1:Cite While You Write. Copy the files "EndNote CWYW Commands.dot" and "EndNote Web CWYW Commands.dot" by highlighting them and going to "Edit > Copy." Go to the folder Users:[your login name with the house icon]:Library:Application Support:EndNote and paste the two files, "Edit > Paste." Go back to the folder Applications:EndNote X1:Cite While You Write. Copy the file "EndNote CWYW Word 2008.bundle" by highlighting the file and going to "Edit > Copy." Go to the folder Applications:Microsoft Office 2008:Office:Startup:Word and paste the file, "Edit Paste." Start Word, go to "Word > Preferences" and click on "File Locations." If the Startup folder is not set, highlight "Startup" and click on "Modify". Select the folder Applications:Microsoft Office 2008:Office:Startup:Word and click "Choose." Click "OK" and close Word. Start EndNote and then start Word.   -------------   However, the bug still occurs. So following is the message I sent to support seeking further assistance.   -------------   Hello again, Unfortunately the bug still exists. When I open Word 2008, the Endnote X1 CWYW toolbar appears. HOWEVER, all the other tool icons for Word 2008 are greyed out meaning I cannot click on icons such as the icon for "print", "save", "undo" and so on. It appears your instructions are for people who do have the tool bar for CWYW appearing. It appears for me, but when it appears I cannot not use the main Word 2008 icons. One thing I notice is that if I reduce the Word 2008 window into the dock then click again to have it appear, the Word 2008 icons can be clicked. But, as you would understand, I should not be forced to do this each time I open Word 2008. Looking forward to your assistance. Darren Tokyo ---------------   I hope this problem gets solved because I don't want to waste my money on a new version of endnote due for release this summer (2008) if I am going to get a repeat of the same problem. Come on Thompson ... looking forward to your support!   Darren Tokyo

Are you on a network, or are your styles write protected?  Did you try to give a new name?   Version X2?   If Version X2 and your "home" directory has been changed due to your network environment, I found I had to manually create a styles folder C:\Documents and Settings\USERNAME\My Documents\EndNote\Styles and changed EndNote's style folder preferences to point there.  Then it seems to pull styles from both the original endnote styles folder and the preferences folder.

Has no one else encountered this same issue?   I downloaded the X2 installer again last night - and again, I got an error message saying that the installer encountered an error and that it was ending prematurely.

 Make sure you empty your caches?  Sometimes the browser will just reload the cache version (and our Institution has their own cache, separate from my IE cache, so I have to ask them to empty it or wait long enough for it expire, which can be days).

First check to see if auto-update has been turned off.  That is in the edit preferences, "terms lists" and make sure the boxes are checked.    Then you should open your terms list, ( in EndnoteX-- Tools, Open Terms List, select keywords list) go to the "lists" tab.   Before hitting the "Update Lists"  you should look at the delimiters selected.  I know it will separate them if there are carriage returns, but I don't know how they imported from Procite.  Pick the appropriate delimiters for your library.    Then hit update terms and select the field (which should be defaulted to Keywords) to update your lists.    If it isn't defaulted/linked to keywords, then you need to change the "Link terms list..."  which has the "Linking fields to terms list" information, (Hit ctrl 3 in endnote in windows version.This is also available thru the Endnote Tools menu) and make sure keywords is linked to Keywords terms list --waaaay down the list.

Actually the problem with pubmed connection is not related to pubmed being down or slow. I get various incorrect results from  searches with know results and error messages. Direct connection to pubmed works fine simultaneously. Interestingly Bookends gives similar problems as i finally downloaded a trial version (following years of buggy endnote use).   I am guessing a change to the pubmed site has created a problem. Since this thread has been read by others, the problem is likely not limited to myself and  one other newbie.   Any ideas or solutions are appreciated

This will happen if you use the PubMed (NLM) connection file to import the references.  When you go to "File > Import" set your "Import Options" to "Other Filters" and then select "PubMed (NLM)".  Do this even if your Import Options already says "PubMed (NLM)" since the filter and connection file have the exact same name.     If the problem continues, download a new copy of the filter and save it to your "C:\Program Files\EndNote #\Filters" folder for Windows, and "/Applications/EndNote #/Filters" for the Mac: ftp://support.isiresearchsoft.com/pub/pc/filters/PubMed%20(NLM).enf

No clever answers, so I will take a stab.   I take it she then saved each document, with the original name?  Ummm, from the backup?   - I assume you already eliminated that possibility!   If there is an an older version with the references, but multiple changes in the current document, you can unformat the backup, do a compare documents, and keep the new text and keep the references, but running thru the document and accepting or rejecting the appropriate information.    Depending on the length of each document, another way is to replace the parentheses with curley brackets and remove all the ", et al"s (if it is in that kind of format) and then run endnote.  It will mean sorting thru duplicates of the author year matches, but that is easier than reinserting each reference.    Finally if it is a long document and in a numbered format, the easiest way I have found to cope, is to create a new library dragging the references into it, in the numbered order (so the number matches the record number) or putting the number in the "label" field, if it isn't used,  Then editing the numbers to have curley brackets around them with the # in front of the number (for record number matches), or editing the preferences for in text citation to use the label field.    Best of luck.

You can turn off Instant Formatting in your document.  Go to "Tools > EndNote > Format Bibliography" and click on "Instant Formatting".  You would then want to click on the "Turn Off" button and click OK.   If you add new references they will be inserted as temporary citations, i.e. {Author, Year #123}.  You would then go to "Tools > EndNote > Format Bibliography" and click OK any time you want to format those references and add them to the bibliography .

Are you referring to Citations (in the text) or the listing of authors in the Bibliography section?  Make sure you are checking the "Author Lists" of the correct section of the currently used style (the one that the "format bibliography" window is showing, not the the one that the Endnote library window is showing). In those settings you will find the "list all authors" box or the number of authors to show, before substituting a designated number of authors and the et al.  In citations, you can show all the first time, and only the first there after.    Are your Authors correctly listed in the Authors field of the records?   Do all all authors display the initials, or just some?  If just some, could they be considered "ambiguous" (same first author, same year).  If treating it as amibuous and it is not, try copy and pasting the first author from one record to the other; as sometimes there are very subtle differences not apparant.    There isn't a checkbox for last name only, - it is a drop down selection?

Then click on the "Dictionaries" button.  Under "Files" you should have "ssceam.tlx" listed.  If it is not, click on the "Add File" button and select "ssceam.tlx" then click "Close".  Click "OK" to close the preferences window and then open a reference and perform the spell check again.

I've had exactly the same problem with EndNote X2, accessing EbscoHost through my institution, Hood College. I checked and downloaded several journal articles from the Annals of the Association of American Geographers, and all of them came into EndNote as "Film". This is despite the fact that my preferences had the default reference type set to "Journal Article".   When this happens, is there any way to change all these references to "Journal Article" at once, or must one go through them one by one.   By the way, I remember something similar happening with a previous version of EndNote (X?) downloading all references as "Ancient Text", and it was fixed with a patch to the version of EndNote that had the problem.

Yes, select them (coming in, they will be in that Connect group, later you can sort on Record Number and select the group that way, if you change your library preferences for library display to show the record number).  Make sure that only the references you want are showing (if you are certain there are no references in you library with the library as "Film" that you want to keep as films you don't need to make sure only the ones you want to change are selected.)   Do an "Edit>change text"  select the "Reference Type" as the field, type in "Film" (without quotes) and then in the replace box "Journal Article".    It should tell you how many records the "Film" selection in the Reference Type field matches, are you sure you want to change them, and you say yes.    As always, when doing global changes, you should make a copy (use the "send to" to compress it to a *.enlx) before starting.

To add cited pages to your in-text citations and footnotes, include them in your in-text citation by adding an "@" symbol followed by the pages: [Wilde, 1895 #32@ 88]"   Although the fact that the citation section is empty would seem to confound this advice?      So, if you want the citation  -- (authorname, year pp CITED PAGES) information, to always appear in the body of the text.  Edit the style to include (Author Year|,*pp*Cited Pages|) where the * are inserted field, link adjacent, and the | are inserted field - forced separation.    If you just want the inserted citations to show up in the bibliography at the end, I think the current style achieves that, they just disappear from the body of the text  but are listed in the "endnotes" (as it appears the style requirements demand).   If you want something different, perhaps you need to give us a more extensive example of your output requirements.  Also, is there a output bibliography style that matches what you want?  In that case, you could, (in EndNote) have that syle showing and do the copy formated (ctrl K) and paste it into your document as plain text?  Would that help you?

Thanks for the fast response!   Yes, I am looking for something like this:   "So, if you want the citation  -- (authorname, year pp CITED PAGES) information, to always appear in the body of the text.  Edit the style to include (Author Year|,*pp*Cited Pages|) where the * are inserted field, link adjacent, and the | are inserted field - forced separation."   The easiest way would be to copy the Footnote Template info. to the Citations Template but it won't allow that.    Here's the thing: When I try to edit Citations Template it has "Insert Field" but no "Insert Reference Types." The templates for the other categories have Reference Types -- an obvious "must" for someone creating a custom Citation in-text template. Was this an oversight by Endnote developers?    I know that Endnote (or someone) gathered people's custom templates over the years. I developed one for Procite but made the move to Endnote when I thought version XI was good enough.   Any thoughts on the above? Thanks a million.

You need to EDIT the Chicago output style to include appropriate fields in the Citation Template. 1. Launch Endnote. 2. Click on EDIT (menu at top) and hover over OUTPUT STYLE. 3. Click on OPEN STYLE MANAGER. 4.  Select the Chicago version you want to modify (A or B) and click on EDIT. 5. IMMEDIATELY save the output style with a new name - i.e. Chicago (Jonbean's) 6. Click on  TEMPLATES under "Citation". 7. Click in the text book and insert left parenthesis. 8.  Click on INSERT FIELD and click on the first field to include (e.g. AUTHOR). This field will be inserted in the text box.  9. Add whatever punctuation  you need, such as commas, periods, and other fields. 10.  Insert the right parenthesis.     When you are all done, save the style.  Now use this style for inserting intext citations.

Citations in the body of the text cannot be formated differently for different reference types in Endnote.   I can't really think of a style that asks for that for an in-text citation, which usually refers the reader to a footnote or to a bibliography at the end?    Your best bet would be to copy formated, from a style that matches what you want in your source list and paste them in.

Emily,   I'll give that a try but will it cover all reference types??    As for purposes -- a review essay, for example, might discuss a number of recent books that deal with X topic: followed by a list in footnote style (not bib style). There are lots of other uses but that's an obvious one.   Right now, I'll think I'll use Zotero, although it's added work. I also use Zotero to keep a running list of material and then insert in Word in footnote style. (Endnote Web doesn't work nearly as well and is limited to subscription sites).

I just figured out how to do this (accidentally), and hoped it might be helpful to you or anyone else who wants to do this. There are two steps - first creating what I will call a "stealth citation" and second manually inserting the text you want in the visible citation. A "stealth citation" inserts the reference into your references/bibliography without any trace of it in the text. This could be dangerous if not used carefully! By removing both the author name and the year from the temporary citation, it will show up in your references even though you won't see anything in the text. For instance, instead of putting {Garner, 1974 #1189}, you can instead put {,#1189}. When this is formatted, there will be nothing indicating an in-text citation but it will be in your references. So double-check your references to make sure no extra stealths have appeared. Then you put the text you want in with the visible citation. This requires the use a character called the "acute accent" and looks like this "`" thing (remove quotation marks). It's the same key as the tilde key (~) except you don't press shift; it's normally the key to the left of the 1 key. It must be placed before the final semicolon. Let's say you want to see (Felfoldy & Garner, 1971; Handel & Imai, 1972; for a comprehensive review see Garner, 1974) as the final product. If done the normal way: {Felfoldy, 1971 #170; Handel, 1972 #659; for a comprehensive review see \Garner, 1974 #1147} Endnote would give you: (Felfoldy & Garner, 1971; for a comprehensive review see Garner, 1974; Handel & Imai, 1972) No good. So instead you do (note the use and placement of the acute accent): {Felfoldy, 1971 #170; Handel, 1972 #659`; for a comprehensive review see Garner, 1974} {,#1147} Now when you format you get: (Felfoldy & Garner, 1971; Handel & Imai, 1972; for a comprehensive review see Garner, 1974) And Garner (1974) will show up in your references! Tada! Sorry for the long and complicated explanation, but hopefully it helps...

Remember that any search now automatically incopporates any new matches into your library.    since newly entered references get the most recent record number, I would display the record number in your library view, sort on record number and then sort again, so the most recent are at the top.  These are probably the records you want to delete.

Jon, Once you have created the citation format in your modified output style, then take a look at the templates for Bibliography and Footnotes. You can copy/paste each of  the reference type templates in Footnotes into the corresponding reference type in the Bibliography template (one at a time), replacing the existing Bibliography reference type formats.  This will format your Bibliography that you need. Chicago 15 A has all major reference types defined in both Footnote and Bibliography - use their Footnote template as your starting point..

why not? This is a glaring deficiency that evidently harks back to Endnote's rather awkward interface. Perhaps it's time for a recode / overhaul?   I'd simply like to promote the 'label' field to the top of every reference window, so that I can put in my own code to keep track of paper copies. Since I can't do that, I have to manually remove ALL unwanted fields of EVERY reference type I wish to use just so that the 'label' field isn't right down at the bottom of the page. This is HORRIBLY inflexible and quite surprising for such a noteworthy program, especially since I can easily ammend the field order in the library window.   Other quibbles: the password requirements on your forum are unnecessarily stringent. I mean if it was a system logon then OK, it's good to have a secure password, but for a run of the mill forum? Get real endnote, that kind of security just isn't necessary to IMPOSE on all users.   Second, my verification email went straight into my gmail spam box. You might wanna sort that out.   Thanks for an otherwise good program, pity it's coded in such an inflexible way. Please let me know when a new edition emerges that behaves more like windows apps, not as a quirky throwback to previous editions. Thanks

What's even more annoying is that in edit->prefs->reference types you even state "the table cannot be used to reorder the fields in a reference window" which caused me to spend even longer looking for the menu / option that could allow me to reorder the fields. It would be better to have been honest, telling us it can't be done in this OR ANY OTHER menu, so don't waste your time trying:    "the table cannot be used to reorder the fields in a reference window, so don't even bother trying because you can't do it. No really, there's no way it can be done in this inflexible release"   If you've gone to the length of putting that note in the prefs, it suggests that we're not the only ones requesting the ability to change field ordering. In which case please listen to us!

Unfortunately, the solution posted above wasn't very helpful for me (although I appreciate the tip), because I have already done a lot of searches since updating to Endnote X2.  In my case, ordering by record number and looking at the latest records lists a bunch of new references, some of which I want to keep (those I had searched for) and others that were not desired.  Since I've done so many searches, it would be a real hassle for me to review each of the new references for relevance.  Plus, some of the new references have similar titles and I may not remember which reference I want to keep.     Here are a couple of solutions that I received from customer support and elsewhere in the forums.  I thought others might benefit as well from these nifty workarounds, until the EndNote development team releases a patch in the near future to turn the automatic search off.       To prevent this problem from occurring (I read this suggestion elsewhere in the forums):    Unless you don't mind deleting excess references upfront that are downloaded when you perform a search, try the following.  Create a dump library (new library that you will only use for searching).  When searching, open this library as well as your reference library (perhaps you can place your dump library at bottom of the EndNote window and reference library at top).  Use the dump library to search for new references.  Then drag the references you want from the search results in your dump library to your regular reference library.       If you are already piled higher and deeper (received this suggestion from customer support):   Here is one possible way [resolve this problem]. First create a new blank test library. Next, in your regular library click on File > Save a Copy to save a backup copy of your regular library. In your regular library go to the first group and click on Edit > Select All to select all the records in the group. Click on Edit > Copy and then go to the new library and click on Edit > Paste. Do that for each of the groups. When this is finished the test library will contain records that are in groups in your regular library. After that you can close your regular library and click on File > Import. For data file you can choose your regular library. Click on the arrow beside the import option window and choose EndNote Library. For duplicates choose Discard Duplicates. The imported tab will show the records that were not already in the database. These would be the records that are not part of a group in your regular library.     Hope this is helpful.

Hi, i have had this same problem, and believe that the corruption has been caused by using the backspace or delete key to remove unwanted Formatted citations (ok with unformatted citations). Apparently this is a no-no (see X1 User Manual p. 301).   I am working on a 250 page thesis with over 1000 citations, and received an error message something along the lines of Object deleted (not at the time i was deleteing citations, perhaps when instant formatting was scanning the doc). Long and the short of it, around 400 citations dissappeared from my Edit Citation dialogue box. They still appeared in the text as active , and i could still select 'Edit Citation', which would open the Edit Citation dialogue box, but the citation i had selected was no longer in the 'Citations in document list' and my tally of citations (bottom right) was down around 600!   It seems that when using Formatted citations, the correct way to remove them is using 'Edit Citation' and then clicking remove, so that all the code associated with the smart tag is correctly removed.   In the meantime, i have had to rebuild my document from backups, and no longer use the delete key. :-(

If you are receiving an "Invalid Class String" error when trying to use EndNote from within MS Word on Vista: First, go to the EndNote website and check the FAQ's for this error. There's at least one FAQ on this topic with several possible solutions. If that doesn't work, shut down MS Word and EndNote. Go to the Program Files location for Endnote. Right-click on the EndNote.exe program and select "Run as Administrator", just once. Once EndNote has run at least once as an Administrator, I suspect the class information in the registry is properly updated. After this, running as the current user should be fine. I've tried this and it solved my problem when all the suggestions up on the FAQ did not work.

For the Journal Abbreviations to work properly, you need a complete set of the journals and their abbreviations in the "journals terms list" in the library selected.  See  http://www.library.uq.edu.au/endnote/journal_terms.html and the Endnote FAQ at http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/Styles/faq5.asp.   To underline the Journal names, you need to edit the style to underline them in the Bibliography Template for Journal Ariticle.  Select the word "Journal" and then "ctrl+U" or click on the underlined U in the toolbar.

To get a list of Recommended readings (not necessarily cited?), separate from the cited sources (as footnotes)? Is that what you are trying to get? So Cite things in footnotes, and then -why not use a label or other custom field to put a specific "topic" in the records themselves, and then generate subject bibliographies using the "subject bibiography..." tool and paste them in the specific place in the text you want them to be. You might be able to do something similar using the groups of Endnote XI, but since I haven't upgraded to that, I can't suggest the best way to achieve what you are working toward. They will not be dynamic, but once you know what you want to list there, do you really care? You can later add another one (using the copy format) or generating a new list and replacing it. -- I guess I am happy I am in the sciences and not the humanities! With the subject route: This will generate a list or lists sorted by the selected subject which can be saved to a file. You can generate a document with several subjects listed separately, which you can copy and paste each section, into your document. Again be sure the Endnote program has the appropriate style selected so that it outputs the information in the specific format you are looking for. It really doesn't matter if it originates from the footnote syle or footnote/endnote style of Chicago.

I am a bit stumped too.  Did you modify/create a Book Chapter "reference type" in the Edit>preferences (I know, I forgot that part)?  Maybe it only recognizes the "title" field and then apply the capitalization preferences if it is appropriately named as a title field?

Angela,   Thanks for your reply. I have tried using the "Edit Citation" button in Word and have selected "Exclude Author" for the citation. However, as the reference is authorless (reference type "Statute"), the EndNote CWYW won't allow the in-text citation to be listed without the title of the work.   Is there a way to ensure that the title isn't included in the reference when the work is authorless under APA 5th?   Christopher Andrew Brkich, MEd Alumnus Fellow, University of Florida College of Education PO Box 117048 Gainesville, FL 32611

EBSCO is sending a file with the extension .ris to EndNote. EndNote is importing this using the RefMan (RIS) filter. Unfortunately you cannot interrupt that process and tell EndNote to change the text translation to Unicode (UTF8).   The only solution I can think of is to go to Windows Explorer, click on Tools>Folder Options, and then select the "File Types" tab. Select the RIS file type, and click on the Change button. Choose to open this file extension with WordPad.   Now when you directly export from EBSCO (and most other databases), the file of records will not go to EndNote. Instead it will open in WordPad. Save the file as a text file. Import it into EndNote using the RefMan (RIS) filter. On the Import dialog box, set the Text Translation as Unicode (UTF-8). The diacritics should import correctly now.   This is cumbersome, but it worked for me when I tested it.   If your references contain no diacritics, go back to Windows Explorer and set the File Type options so that the .ris files will open with Web Export Helper. They will then go direct to EndNote.

Thanks. Even if it isn't perfect it works for me. I can just try to collect all my exports in a folder and "save" it at the end of my EBSCO session. Then import it into Endnote. One more step than if it worked the way it's supposed to but only once in a session so not a problem. It does mean that I won't go switching back and forth depending on the presence of not of diacriticals. That would be cumbersome.   Dick Grant

Hi ordazza, I have exactly the same problem you do with word 2008 for Mac, installed with Leopard operating system. The only fix I've found so far is to minimize the document (it shrinks down to the dock) and then expand it. The menus then seem to operate normally.  It is an annoying thing to have to do with almost every single word document I open. I'm not sure if it is due to endnote or due to word itself.

  You can try to create an export filter to include the record number and then an import filter to insert the record number into the label field of the record.  Then you could format the paper and change the CWYW citation to use the label and send your colleague the exported file to import with a custom filter to insert the record number into the label field. whew....   However: If it were me, I would just suggest you create a reference list with the record numbers (edit a style to include the record number in the prefix) and then unformat the paper and unlink the bibliography.  (ON A COPY) -   Another idea is to have him find a colleague who uses  endnote9,X,X1 or X2 and borrow their computer temporarily!  - or maybe they could try the trial version of X2? http://endnote.com/endemo.asp

1) don't think so- although someone could write a word macro, if there were a clear identifier of the text you wanted to convert to another font color.  2) depends on version, but the travelling library could avoid the need to share libraries.  Recent versions of endnote have a "sendto" option which compresses the library and associated files for sharing.

Ozdazza,  I called endnote and received help on the phone with the installation of Word with OS X Leopard.  I ended up installing the current endnote version with Word 2004.  The tech advised me there was a patch needed for use with Word 2008 and that I might be happier with the 2004 version.  There were a number of workarounds required with the installation that we completed, and the online help vastly sped things up.   You might want to call endnote and obtain direct help.  If you receive a final solution regarding usage with Word 2008, please post to let us know what needs to be done.  I suspect that they are working to fix this bug and that it could happen at any time.  Until that officially occurs, then a tech might provide helpful support.

It sounds to me like you want one big bibliography, not separate bibliographies for each chapter.  Try unformating the references, delete the remnant bibliographies and then reformat the document.  You should end up with one big bibliography at the end.    To "unlink" the references, use the endnote tool in word that is called "remove field codes", or select all, ctrl+shift+f9 ON A COPY, this will remove any endnote information and make the Endnote unusable on the resulting document, but freezes things as they are.  This is what you would want to do, to ensure the maintenance of individual reference lists for each chapter prior to combining.

(No use asking Support in Japan, I learnt I knew more about the issue than their own specialized staff who in the end contact Thomson Reuters to get form replies).   Basically, it took a while, but finally I had Support get their "Product Management Group" to post on the Endnote website that the bug formally exists.   Thus now on http://www.endnote.com/support/CWYW_Word_2008.asp you will see written:   -------- Some users have reported that all the tools and menus in Word 2008 appear greyed out after installing the EndNote X1 CWYW patch for Word 2008. Switching the focus away from Word 2008, to the Finder or another program, and then returning to Word allows the toolbars to work. --------   Now that they formally admitted there was a bug, I asked Support to fix it pretty please. The response I got was:   -------- ... I highly recommend that you submit this as a request through our suggestions form: http://www.endnote.com/ensuggest.asp This goes directly to our Product Management Group and is the best way to make your voice heard when it comes to anything you may want to see included or changed in the software. -------   Since Support are on the 'inside' and know about this bug inside and out, I asked if they could put in the request. The response I got was:   ------ In order to see results, it would help if you as a consumer of our product were to contact our Product Management Group directly through the online form I indicated.  ------   I shook my head in disbelief. I have to put in a request for a new feature for a bug? That one is beyond me. Plus I felt like I was now dealing with one big government bureaucracy. Support not being able to make a request to their own Product Management Group to fix a bug is puzzling to say the least. Thomson Reuters seem to want us, the customer, to put in requests for new features that are actually bug fixes and not their very own Support team who know about the problem inside and out! Why do *I* have to go running around on the Thomson Reuters bureaucracy wheel?   So, basically I have given up on Endnote. I bought an excellent application made by a Mac programmer called "Bookends". It deals with the Word 2008 issue wonderfully using an apple script. There is another application designed also specifically for the Mac called Sente. It looks wonderful and seems to work for most people, but it did not work the way I wanted. I would give both a try.   If you guys would like to actually put in a request to the Product Development Team, I will chime in as well to add to the voices. My university has a site license for Endnote. But I am going to strongly insist they provide us with other real Mac alternatives like Bookends. Bookends is way much cheaper and they are not insisting that you fork out heaps of money for a minor upgrade like Endnotes does.   Let me know what you plan to do and we'll take it from there.   Cheers! :)   Darren Tokyo

I suggest you uninstall the trial version first, because the libraries are independent with the program. When you uninstall, they won't disappear. Or you can backup your libraries elsewhere. The choice will appear when you reinstall x2, fill in the code and then you'll get the full version.

the only way I can figure out how to achieve what you are looking for, is to create two custom fields which have the name the way you want it to appear.  Then with the appropriate link adjacent and separate characters with those and the punctuation, you can get those fields insteat of Author (which I would leave blank in the record) in the citation and Bibliography section.

When I start Endnote from the .exe file first, it starts okay, and I can go back and forth to MS Word.    If I try to start it by going into MS Word first I get various useless results, one of which is the Server Execution Failed message.   Hope that works for somebody else. It seems like there are all sorts of different results possible - sometimes I get that message, sometimes I get a message that looks like the Trial Version warning, but just flashes so I can't be sure, most times I get the hourglass for a few seconds to a minute, then it goes back into MS Word. One time it actually got into  the Endnote screen with no database displayed and locked the computer with 0% CPU use so that I had to use Task Manager to kill both Endnote and MS Word to get control again.   So far, if I start the server first, I just don't like the way it handles some of the references, as noted in a different thread. At this point the trial to purchase decision is iffy, but I will keep an partially open mind.

That is only one of several problems noted:   Aimone, J. Wiles, J. Gage, F.   becomes:   ASDF (Aimone, Wiles, & Gage, 2006)   Aimone, J., Wiles, J., & Gage, F. (2006). Potential role for adult neurogenesis in the encoding of time in new memories. Nature Neuroscience, 9(6), 723-727.    Note that 1) the author list is shortened to two names, 2) the bibliography entry has both the foreshortened list and incorrect placement of the initial for the second name.   I did check that I still had APA 5th selected.   I did find, after some messing around that if I insert the item without a format then format the bibliography to APA 5th in Word it come out:  ASDF (Aimone, Wiles, & Gage, 2006)   Aimone, J., Wiles, J., & Gage, F. (2006). Potential role for adult neurogenesis in the encoding of time in new memories. Nature Neuroscience, 9(6), 723-727.  subsequent citation was: LLLL (Aimone, et al., 2006)  which is all correct. Also I tried with six+ authors and got the correct first citation and reference as long as I formatted it after insertion. So the problem is in the  insertion interface either not using the selected format or having a differnt formatting guide. However, there is one anomaly to that idea - now the preview pane in Endnote shows the format that it will have in MS Word after I do the format step, where as before it was showing the format from the first case.   However, there are additional rules that apply when more author names are required to distinguish references, and a couple of sample cases, ended up with the citations being indistinguishable.   Another problem that I have noted is that for compilation books, where the editor becomes the primary author in the data fields, I can find no way to designate (Ed.) I did make it include (Ed.) as an additional author so that it is close.   If I try to fix those, Endnote immediately sets them back to the error.    I tried selecting the error item and using remove codes. All of the citations and references were changed to text and new citations went in tas the unformattd ({}) as text only, even though I still had APA 5th selected. (Which is how I found out about the fix to the shortened author list.)   So at this point, my workaround is:  1) Just do unformatted citations while I write.    2) When I am done,             save a copy,  so that I can do any further modifications             format the citations as APA 5th (closeta)             remove the field codes             fix the (relatively few) items that aren't handled properly             3) For any updates go back to the saved copy with the unformatted citations   Is there a simpler way?

Overall the feature set will be very similar to the EndNote X2 Windows version. We are targeting a few Macintosh-only features but these could still change - even at the last minute - so everyone will need to wait for the final release to see.   As for " ...compatible with word processors other than Microsoft Word?" - I presume this means "CWYW" support for other word processors. No - EndNote X2 for Macintosh will not include this feature. We hear many requests for "Apple Pages integration" which we would like to support but this is completely dependent on Apple. You might want to send a suggestion to them as I imagine it will be more meaningful from a customer than from us - http://www.apple.com/feedback/pages.html.   EndNote sales/pricing information is available here -  http://www.endnote.com/enpurchase.asp   Jason Rollins

This can be due to the output style you are using, or that you did not import the journal term lists, which link the abbreviations to the full titles.   To check the output style In EndNote Go to Edit > Output Styles >  Then if the style you are using shows up as "Edit stylename" click that, otherwise choose Open Style Manager, click on the style name and click Edit. In the left menu, click on Journal Names Select the button next to the Abbreviation you want (Abrev 1 has punctuation, 2 does not).   If the correct abbreviation is selected already, then the journal term list needs to be imported. To do this, In EndNote Go to Tools > Open Term Lists > Journal term List In the Terms tab, the journals will probably not have appropriate abbreviations, so select them all (control A on a windows machine) and click Delete term Then go to the  Lists tab Select Import list Find the list you need at C:\program Files\EndNote\term Lists Click Open   Hope this helps.

Hi, You need to strip the formatting out before copying it into Endnotes. Endnotes does not have this feature. What you probably need is a clipboard manager like Clipmate or the one from Donation Coder. These allow you to copy in plain text. You could also convert the html code by pasting it to your notepad program, or even Word can handle this if you know how to do it. The other thing you might do is use Google Scholar for your searches and in the setup to Google Scholar you can have import to Endnote links added to your search results. Import your entries from here  by clicking on the import to endnote link, rather than copy and paste them. You can also import using Library of Congress by using Endnotes connection feature, but this will just work for books mostly. Copying and pasting should be a last resort and if you do it you will have to follow one of my suggestions above.Good luck.

Highlite the entries from within the group folder not "all references" folder. If they are not contiguous, then use control click with the left mouse button. Right click to delete them from your group and find the "delete from group" command to do this in the right click (context menu). If you want them to be in another group, then highlite them in the same manner before removing them from the group you no longer want them in, and drag them to the new group with your mouse. Then you can always remove them from the first group using the method above. To remove them entirely from the library you must first go into the "all references" folder and delete them from there. You can't remove them from the whole library from within a custom group, unless they've changed this in X2, which I doubt.

1) Try to copy/paste one of the author names from a record that is being recognized to replace the author that is not being recognized.  This is usually the result of a subtle difference between the two.    2) Try to edit the Anoymous works part of the style you are using, to Use full title in place of author.

It doesn't matter what style is selected; they all have this same problem.  Very strange!  Oh -- and the problem gets even stranger when I put a space between the initials.  For example, if I change "Smith, J.D." to "Smith, J. D.," the Preview then reads "Smith, and D., J." ...!  I've also just noticed that the problem is identical with references in edited volumes:  not only does it do this to the author's name, but to the name of the volume editor, too.  The rest of the reference is fine, though, so whatever is going on, it's endemic to how X2 is handling names...  I really hope there's a solution out there because I was having issue with v7 and don't want to go back...!

Just on the off chance.  Check your Author tems list.  (Tools, open terms list) and make sure there isn't a , or other delimiter ticked on the lists tab?  If there is, maybe that is the problem?

I did stumble across the option of altering term lists (something I'd never done in v7), and saw the "delimiter" options.  For the Authors list, the comma box is indeed checked, but all the Delimiter options are greyed-out, so I can't un-check the comma one (or check any of the others, for that matter).  I figured that was some sort of default setting...are these options not supposed to be greyed-out for the Authors list...?

I think it is the author format that caused your problem.  Start Endnote X2 and try to edit your output style of bibliograghy and/or citations. Select menu: Edit--Bibliograghy--Author name, there are several display formats for authors' name and initials.  At the same time, check the settings of author lists.

No they shouldn't be greyed out... Perhaps (ON A COPY OF YOUR LIBRARY) you should throw away the Author term list, and create a new authors terms list and make sure the delimiters aren't set and then link that to your authors field.  Then you will need to update the list (to import your authors.    Let us know if works!

Replying to my own question! If at first you don't succeed... Going back into editing styles again, I realised that if using copy and paste, it is important not to paste apples on oranges..:-) - the conference paper reference type that I had copied from had used the field name Access Date - but the electronic article reference type has named the same field Date Accessed - as soon as I replaced Access Date with Date Accessed in the edited style the correct date appeared in the citation. Yippee! Sorry to waste the forum space - but who knows? - this may assist someone else.

No retrieval date is necessary for content that is not likely to be changed or updated, such as a journal article or book."

There is a network license available (at least we have one).    As for sharing libraries, once a library is open for writing, it is not available to other users, even if they don't have write access to it.  We solve the problem by having a read-only folder on our network which is written over by a script every night by a copy in a a read/write folder.

Okay, then are the endnote citations all in one - or are they in separate brackets with a space in between (but that wouldn't show up like you report, they would be in separate parentheses)?    Have you changed the citation, separator to a dash, rather than a comma or a semi-colon?  (but that doesn't recreate exactly what you are seeing either.  - I can't seem to get that sort of output... Wierd, are you sure that the document is being formated with the style you think it is?  (Check by manually reformatting and look at the style name)?    If that isn't it, can you attach the document and style you are using to a reply and maybe I  can look at it?  (add as attchments)?   and what version of word and endnote are you using and what system.

The username and password that you have is probably searching all the Proquest databases that your institution subscribes to.   It is possible for your institution to ask Proquest to segment the databases on their Z39.50 server. Then they will be issued individual usernames for each database. You use the same connection file, but the username that you input will determine which database is searched. See information on the Proquest website: http://www.proquest.com/techsupport/answers/pqc/pqc_ans_68.shtml   This is a good option for many of the Proquest databases, and much more useful than searching them all simultaneously. However it does not work well for the Dissertations and Theses database. The records do not import with the degree type or the university.   You would do better to search the Proquest Dissertations and Theses database on the web, and use the direct export facility to get the records into EndNote. This is easy and works well.

"Word Definition" is a standard reference type in EndNote X1 for Mac. I didn't create it.  (I'm running OSX 10.3.9 on a Powerbook G4, and I'm using EndNote X1 with Word 2004 for Mac.)   In EndNote 9, I used the webpage reference type and entered * The Oxford English Dictionary  * in the author field  and inserted the word in the title field. The Dictionary standard reference type in EndNote X1 is not the correct choice for a specific word. With the changes in EndNote X1, my references for words are no longer displaying correctly because the Webpage reference type has changed. So, I now have to change hundreds of reference entries so that they will correctly display bibliographic information. The quote marks around the words did not disappear in my EndNote 9 references for word definitions.   This is how EndNote displays my entry in the Word Definition reference window, which I entered as "university, n." in the word field:   "university, n. 1989 2nd ed. The Oxford English Dictionary: OED Online. Oxford University Press. 27 Aug. 2005  http://dictionary.oed.com/cgi/entry/50267851.    If the word does not have a suffix, such as "n" , then the entry will display with no problems. The closing quote marks do not disappear in this case:   "ideology". 1989 2nd ed. The Oxford English Dictionary: OED Online. Oxford University Press. 22 August 2006,  http://dictionary.oed.com/cgi/entry/50111233.   In the Word Definition standard EndNote reference type, the word appears in the author field in the Library window. Just a quirk of this particular reference type, I guess.The main problem for me is entering a word that has a suffix so it conforms to the field entry rules for author names so that the quote marks remain in place. The alternative is not to use quote marks, which creates a bibliographic entry that looks like this:   administrative, a. 1989 2nd ed. The Oxford English Dictionary: OED Online. Oxford University Press. 19 Feb. 2007, http://dictionary.oed.com.oca.ucsc.edu/cgi/entry/50002842.    Would a reader be confused by the entry above?  Is the author name format a bit ambiguous?    Thanks for any feedback on this,   --Renee

Sorry, I didn't see that in either my X2 or X for windows.    Since you have already worked thru the peculiarities of the Author field for your "words" why not put the quotes in the style for that reference type?    Otherwise, you can create a new record field and move the words from the "author" to the new field.  Select all the word records and then use the "change and move fields" which is under the references menu (of EndnoteX).

"Word Definition" is not a standard reference type in any Windows version of EndNote up to X2. It is unlikely that the Mac version would have a reference type which is not in the Windows version.   I checked the Mac version of the EndNote X1 manual from the EndNote website, and "Word Definition" is not in the list of "Reference Types and Fields".   Maybe you have inadvertently imported a Reference Type Table that some other user has modified?   If you go to Preferences>Reference Types, you can export your Reference Type Table and save it. Then you could revert to the EndNote defaults, and see if they work better for you. If not, you can reimport the Reference Type Table.

This is because of a setting in the output style. Go to EndNote, click on Edit>Output Styles>Edit "[Name of style]"   When the style edit window opens, go to the "Page Numbers" section.   I think you will find that "Show the full range of pages" is checked. You need to check "Don't change page numbers".   Close the edit window and save the changes.   But be aware that all the references in your EndNote library must have the full page range in the Pages field if they are to comply with the requirements of that style. EndNote will not longer do that for you.

You don't tell us which version of endnote, and if you have upgraded endnote in the interrum.  If is a recent version (9 or better) it shouldn't matter, as the refs should be in the travelling library.  But if it isn't working correctly, If you unformat and reformat a COPY of the manuscript (so you don't lose anything and can go back) and use the new library, Endnote should find the best match irrespective of the record number at least with Endnote9 and later.  Select the correct reference if there are more than one possible, continue for all the refs in the manuscript and save as a new file.  It should now be fixed.   It is just for these reasons, that I always have only one library with everything,which is backed up daily.

I would invest in a good thumbdrive rather than the travelling library feature.  When collaborating on one manuscript with colleagues, it can be a useful feature, however, for your own writing, you want one library which is stable.    If there are two versions of the library now, with some differences, import one library into the other, but be sure that you don't import duplicates (choose the "discard duplicates" or "import into duplicates library").    ON A COPY, unformat the paper and reformat it with the combined library.  A few references might come up, as they now have a different record number.  Select the match (this might give you a clue, if there are some duplicates remaining, so you should go back and delete them.)    If it still happens, inspect those references (edit citation) to see if they are pointing to different records in the libary, but are really duplicates.  If so, delete one of the records and unformat and reformat again.    The other time you might get full name/initial, is if they are two different references, but endnote also thinks they are different authors, and want the reader to know that.  If they are the same author, replace the first author, by copy and pasting the name from the other record.  Often there are subtle differences (an extra space or punctuation) which Endnote reads a differences.    Finally, whenever you use the Unformat command, you turn off CWYW.  If you want the word document to automatically format citations and references when you add  or delete them, you need to turn it on again thru the format citation dialogue box, on the "instant formating" tab.    good luck

One way  is to insert the text you want in the prefix of the citation, or as below in the unformated citation. You may have to edit the style, sort order to be order of appearance, so they don't get swapped.  Alternatively put the endnote references in as hidden text and type whatever you want as the reference.    {Bloggs, 2000 #2595; quoted in \Silf, 2005 #32}

I don't know the answer.  The formatting is supposed to be picked up from the Bibliography, and there aren't any commas before the "title" field there.  The help files actually use MLA as an example for the use of the Short Title in the situation you are encountering, and show it working, but in my quick tests, I couldn't get it to work either.  - I think this is a bug, unless there is some judicious use of link and separate characters which I couldn't identify.  I think you should ask tech support.  (My testing was done with EndnoteX2).

The "Prefix" and "Suffix" boxes only work with output styles configured to produce citations in the text (e.g. APA, Harvard, Chicago 15B). They won't work with output styles configured to produce references in footnotes (e.g. Chicago 15A).   The normal procedure is to type the prefix text in the footnote and then insert the reference using EndNote.

You could try this workaround...   When you have these ambiguous citations, use the Edit Citation function and check the Exclude Author box. Then go to the Prefix box, and type the author's surname, followed by a comma and a space, e.g. Woolf,   It's a bit tedious, but it seems to produce the correct output.

Hi Leanne,   At least I feel validated somehow that it's not just me! Will approach Tech Support as you suggest. The last time I used EndNote was a number of years ago (obviously a much earlier version), and I can't quite ditch the feeling that it used to work correctly back then. I even tried installing an earlier version (v.8, I think) but that didn't correct the problem.   Cheers Sam

Hi John,   That's a good tip, actually, thanks. Where possible I've reworded my writing to include the author in the body of the sentence, enabling me to exclude the author in the citation altogether, which means it is formatted correctly since no comma is required. Of course, it is not always desirable to do this.   I'm worried about one thing with your workaround. I'm still editing my document - it's my PhD thesis in draft. Say, I have only two of Woolf's texts referenced and then, through the editing stage, I delete one of them. Suddenly EndNote no longer disambiguates the references to Woolf by adding the Short Title. However, if I had already hard-coded the author name+comma+space in the prefix of those citations as you suggest, I end up with: (Woolf, 23), ie an erroneous comma.   Unless EndNote comes up with an automatic disambiguation that is correct, I fear I'm going to just have to be inserting the odd comma in the final version once field codes have been removed. Could be worse I suppose.   Thanks for your suggestion.   Sam

Hello,   I tried to export citation from JSTOR. As you may know it is supposed to work after hitting button "EndNote, Cite... (RIS file)". I used this one previously. It worked and asked if I wanted to open it with EndNote, if I remember right. But now suddenly it opens in Firefox & IE windows. When I saved it into desktop that opened page and opened it with EndNote, it asked me which filter I want to use. Since I've downloaded it from JSTOR, I used JSTOR but it didn't work. I need help with that magic button on JSTOR website. What should I do in order to use it?   I tried many options including uninstalling and re-installing my Endnote, IE, and Firefox, checking options in Endnote, IE, Firefox, and in Endnote. But I couldn't find solution. I know it worked before.   Right now I'm using Firefox 3, IE 7, EndNote 9 and Vista Home Premium. Previously just 2 months ago, I'd Firefox 2 (I assume), IE 7, EndNote 9, and XP.   Thanks,

As most of the journals I now submit to, create a PDF version, I haven't bothered striping the links for my recent submissions and have had no "loss" of references.    Other publishers specifically request that imbedded field links are removed.  You don't have to avoid using Endnote! You just need to eliminate the links before sumission.   Routinely, I use ctrl A (select all), shift+ctrl F9 (unlink fields) ON A COPY of the manuscript for submission.  Alternatively, use the Endnote "tool" to accomplish the same thing (the one with a little arrow pointing straight up.    Some publishers now actually prefer to have Endnote imbedded links, as they convert them somehow to create their html version of the online document.  So it is worth while to check on their preference.

"Out of the box" EndnoteX's Aquaculture journal style says that the Author Lists should list all Author names - as First Appearance and subsequent appearances which sounds pretty weird to me and is not what the Journal's instructions to authors says it should be!  - so if you already changed it to the more common, 3 or more, list one, then you might just have to unformat and reformat.  Make sure you also change both the first appearance and the subsequent appearances section of citation when you edit the style.    Don't change the bibliography section, which should show all authors.

The filter that EndNote uses for direct export from JSTOR is the filter called "RefMan (RIS)".   Also, I would check that your Internet cache is not full. That still causes problems with direct export from databases.

I think that, as long as you're using the modified output style, you're always going to have that problem with multiple citations.  The way to do this is not to modify the overall output style but to modify that particular in-text citation.  What you do is: 1. Insert your citation as normal, using the original output style for APA. 2. Once the citation is in your text, put your cursor inside the citation and then choose Tools--> EndNote--> Edit citation(s).  Or you can choose the Edit Citation(s) icon from the EndNote toolbar (the one with the pencil inside the brackets). 3. A dialog box showing the underlying codes and options for all your citations will come up.  As long as your cursor was in the citation you want, it will be referring to the right one.  Check the "Exclude Author" box.  Click Ok. 4. The citation that originally read, "Smith (Smith, 2008) said..." should now say "Smith (2008) said...".   Hope this helps! Mandi

I really think that Mandiose gave you the correct advice.  You are never going to get multiple citations to look correct using the approach you have outlined.  The only other way to achieve this and not mess up the multiple citations is to turn off CWYW and leave the default (Author, Year).  Now the inserted endnote citation will look like this {Author, Year #RECNO}.  Manually move the Author into your text, outside the bracket --Author et al  {, Year #RECNO} -- when you need those(and add the et al, if appropriate, or the Author1Surname and Author2Surname).  Leave multiple citations as they are.    The last alternative (using your current style setup) is to fix the Multiples by unlinking the fields ON A COPY and fixing them manually just before submitting.  the closing bracket is ommitted because that is what would happen in a normally formatted multiple reference.  It is replaced by the coma, in your case.  I assume you don't want it to appear as Author1 (Year), Author2 (Year) Author3 (Year)  ?

If the Choose Destination box is empty it sounds like the Web Export helper did not install correctly. The same thing happened to us with direct export and EBSCO, ScienceDirect and Proquest. To fix it go to Start/Settings/Control Panel/Add or Remove Programs. Highlight Endnote from the list and click on Change. Run the Repair. Then restart your computer.

No fixes in sight so far, but the problem has changes as solutions attempted. I have uninstalled EndNote X and installed a later version of EndNote X1 with the hope that the problems would go away. No such luck.  The same problem exists with regard to not being able to save files, but clicking on the EndNote tool bar now returns the error "The macro cannot be found or has been disabled because of your macro security settings".   I have found the various methods to remedy this situation, but none work to date.  This includes checking the templates and addins (EndNote Cwyw.dot is ticked) as well as the Macro security levels (Trust all installed addins and tremplates and also tried lowering security).   I suspect the next step may be to re-install MS Office 2003.

After uninstalling Endnote X1, I am able to open Word 2007 and edit, but whenever I try to close the program, it freezes. I looked into Word Options, and saw in the add-ins section: listed as an active application add-in is C:\Users\AppData\my username\Roaming\Endnote\Endnote Cwyw.dotm (type: Template). Cited as inactive applications are C;\Program Files\Common Files\Thomson ResearchSoft\Cwyw\Endnote Cwyw.dll (type: COM add-in) and C:\Users\AppData\my username\Roaming\Endnote\Endnote Cwyw.dotm (type: Template). Of course all those files (for both active and inactive application add-ins) are no longer there after a successful uninstallation (I used Endnote's own built-in uninstallation program).   How may I remove those add-ins manually? That might solve the 'freeze' problem? Thank you.

The output styles on the web site will not work with EndNote 7 or earlier.  The styles will work with all of the supported versions of EndNote.  You would need to locate a style with similar formatting requirements in EndNote 7 and modify the output style.  The other option would be to upgrade to a newer version of EndNote that can use the style.

Hi Jason, Thanx for the information on the upcoming update. So VGA support is included in X2? I don't have it installed, so I'm unable to confirm this. I have a Dell Axim x51v and I know that X1.01 was certainly not working correctly on it. So, the change to VGA support has been made? I'm getting mixed information from Thomson on this. According to a tech support email I received this isn't in the works for the near future! I'm confused. Will EN X2 run on a pocket pc with a VGA display, such as the Axim x51v?

You can only connect to library catalogues if the library has made its catalogue available on a Z39.50 server. Even if this is the case, they may restrict access to their own users.   NACSIS apparently has a Z39.50 server. See: http://www.nii.ac.jp/CAT-ILL/en/about/cat/z3950.html   You will have to approach them to have your IP address authorised. Then you will have to edit another EndNote connection file to insert the settings for the NACSIS Z39.50 gateway (unless someone else can supply you with this).   I can't find any indication that the National Diet Library is using a Z39.50 server, but someone else may have more information on this.

When you say - "...OpenURL gives me the access to both of them readily." - do you mean access to an HTML page that includes record information and also a link to a PDF full text of the article/file - OR - do you mean access directly to the PDF full text of the file/record? There is a very big difference between the two.   I think this is significant and can help to explain some of the confusion over the current implementation of the EndNote X2 Find Full Text feature.   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development

Yes - VGA support is included in EndNote X2 for PocketPCs. As for - "Will EN X2 run on a pocket pc ...such as the Axim x51v?" - We do not have access to every possible PocketPC device. On the VGA devices we tested, EndNote X2 worked fine.

Hi Jason   Unfortunately, for what will be such a popular feature, the help information provided by EndNote X2 for the Find full text feature is very casual.  When it fails, as it inevitably has, there is no information at all about how it works or how it can be configured to work better.    Your equally casual reply to check your Endnote web settings is not really helpful in this regard.  The product help doesn't mention anything about this feature being tied to Endnote web or OpenURL settings.  What we need is detailed information about how it is supposed to work.    In my case, I haven't yet been able to get the function to work at all.  I am using a trial version of EndNote X2.  The OpenURL preferences have been carried across from my working version (Endnote X) and the OpenURL links open to our SFX server page but I have had no luck with full text links from Highwire Press, Nature or Science.   Regards Patrick Condron University of Melbourne

Hi John   This is an extremely helpful coverage of the new features of EndNote X2.  Thankyou.    I am trying out various methods to get the Find full text feature to work and your suggestions are very useful.  I find that if you have an ISI base URL that relies upon Ezproxy access to ISI Web of Knowledge the full text feature can't make use of the ISI link to full text.    It is very frustrating that organisations do not realise that most of their users will be accessing through an Ezproxy mechanism.  It fouls up most alerting systems in terms of linking back to full text items and here it appears to be fouling up the use of the Find full text feature.   I did have a bit of success with a ScienceDirect item (Journal of Molecular Biology) (which I believe we ezproxy and have an IP range covering our entire campus) by moving the DOI number into the correct field.    I think there will need to be a lot more testing to find out how to get the best out of the Find full text feature which should be a real winner if we can get it to work.    Regards Patrick Condron University of Melbourne

If removing the Ezproxy string from the ISI Base URL would help, you should be able to do this easily. In EndNote, click on Edit>Preferences, and then go to the "Online" section.   In the ISI Base URL box, I presume you have a URL which includes your insitution's Ezproxy server. You can replace this with: http://gateway.isiknowledge.com/gateway/Gateway.cgi   Now when you export references from Web of Knowledge to EndNote, the ISI Base URL will just be a direct link to Web of Knowledge. This is fine if you only want to use it from a computer on campus. It may even work off campus, if you have a virtual personal network which maintains the institutional IP address.

The easiest way to speed up the load time of EndNote X2 is to edit the list of content files in the folders that your "Folder Location" Preferences point to [For example - C:\Program Files\EndNote X2\Styles, etc.]. If you only use a small subset of Connections, Filters, and Output Styles - as the vast majority of EndNote users do - simply move the files that you do not commonly use to a separate location. You can always move files back to the list.     Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development

I just downloaded the trial version of EndnoteX2 for Macintosh.  For me, the biggest draw to upgrade from X1, which I am currently running, is the fulltext feature.  Unfortunately the Mac version has the same problem as the Windows one -- it only downloads pdfs from a limited set of journals.  The program Papers manages to do this so much better, but it does not have nearly the functionality as Endnote.   Have the people at Thomson figured out this problem?  If not, it should be at the top of their priority list.

There are no specific "problems" with the Find Full Text feature - simply limitations to how fast/accurate it may be for a given set of bibliographic records. Much of this is dependent on access, connectivity, etc that we often have little control over. The feature is designed to improve with updates to some of the technologies used. Some of these will be included in the upcoming free patch.   To support the assertion that "...The program Papers manages to do this so much better..." - please send me a list of specific files you have tested along with all relevant details on your access rights and connectivity. I would like to have our internal team evaluate this as well.   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development />

In EndNote X2 you have several options to move and delete references from a Custom Group or from the whole library (All References).   To move references out of a Custom Group - but not from the whole library: - From within a Custom Group, select the reference(s) and choose "Clear" from the Edit menu - or hit the "Delete" key on your keyboard - you will see a prompt that notes that these records are being removed from the group but NOT your library   To move references out of a Custom Group AND from the whole library:  - From within a Custom Group, select the reference(s) and choose the "Move References to Trash" command from the right-click menu or from the References menu. They will be moved to the "Trash" - you will be asked to delete these completely when closing EndNote.   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development

I've long been critical of the fact that EndNote connection files don't allow users to make use of the full potential of the databases that they are searching. Unfortunately, nobody except librarians seems to care very much about this!   In EndNote, click on Edit>Connection Files>Edit "Library of Congress" (or open the Connection Manager and select Library of Congress).   When the edit window opens, click on "Search Attributes" on the left-hand side.   Go to the Keywords row in the search attributes. Make these changes:   In the Pos column, insert 1.   In the Str column, insert 1.   In the Tru column, insert 1.   Close the edit window, and save the changes when prompted.   Now establish the online search connection again. Select the Keywords field, and search for: monastic libraries europe (no quotation marks or dashes required). You should retrieve 9 results, the same as you would retrieve by searching for this subject heading in the web version of the LC catalogue.

Hi Jason   If you haven't already, it would be outstanding if you could investigate integrating the full text feature with an individual's proxy configuration so that you could download articles served from proxy servers.  I am thinking of a preferences tab for full text which allowed you to enter your institution's proxy server address and your login and password.  The request from EndNote for the full text would then use the proxy URL to check for access.    I don't know if this is even a possible thing to do with Ezproxy.     In our University situation, we have a complicated network arrangement where multiple organisations (from a contractual point of view with suppliers) including hospitals and research institutes share an IP network range with the University so we have very limited on campus IP recognition by full text providers and most things are served to authenticated users through Ezproxy.  It would also be good if the system was able to handle the Athens authentication system.   I have had success with using the full text system with a range of journals now and am astounded at the possibilities it presents.  I also wonder how it will be perceived from a copyright point of view, given many suppliers could provide multiple PDF downloads from their websites if they wanted this to be allowed but haven't and this system appears to allow unlimited downloads.   Regards Patrick Condron University of Melbourne

Jason,   I spent some time doing some testing, and I apologize that I am probably telling you things you already know.  If an Endnote record contains the DOI then all is well.  The problem comes from the fact that when I use ISI Current Contents Connect to download records from searches that I have done, most of them don't have the DOI directly in the record and then EndnoteX2 doesn't find the pdf.  If I manually add the DOI then it finds it, but this is too much work and negates the advantages of the fulltext feature.  I tried the same thing using the ISI WOS database and the records contain the DOI so there is no problem.  The problem is that if one wants to keep up in the literature, CC comes out sooner.  What I don't understand is why Current Contents doesn't contain the DOI.  If I go to the website of the journal of a record I find with CC, the DOI is there, but I don't want to have to do this every time.   Regarding the program papers, as a program it cannot be compared with Endnote, but it has the ability to use google scholar to search for pdf files.  This still takes a few clicks, but much fewer than looking up the DOI to add to Endnote. Of course this requires full institutional access rights to all major journals, which we have.   From my point of view, if Thomson Reuters adds the DOI to Current Contents records then all is solved for me, and I think it would make EndnoteX2 a much more powerful product.   Tom Rizzo />

I may add (might be helpful) to my problems with retrieving ACS papers and Environmental Health Perspectives, that EndNote is trying to connect to their websites (seen connections to either pubs.acs... or ehponline...servers doing netstat command) but pdf is not being downloaded. And i would say that it is not a matter of large library, because I created my library with 1 reference only (from ACS journals) and tried to get the full pdf of that but it wasn't working.

There is no questions that:   "...integrating the full text feature with an individual's proxy configuration so that you could download articles served from proxy servers...."   would be highly desirable for many users. Actually, better proxy support overall is a challenge we have been wrestling with for EndNote for quite a while. Admittedly, there are some newer and Macintosh-only applications that seem to have solved this problem better than EndNote has.   I will pass all of this on to the engineers and hope that we can work out something in the near future.   Jason Rollins

I am having the same experience, with Endnote X2, MS Word 2008 (up-to-date w/patches) and OSX 10.5.4.   I should point out that I also experienced the same problem when using Endnote X1 with the same configuration ? Word 2008 crashed every time I tried to make a footnote. So it could either be a problem inherent to Word 2008, or something that's carried over from X1 to X2.   I was hoping X2 might fix the problem.... no luck!   Back to Word 2004 + X1 for me.

It would be very helpful if someone could send me [email these directly to me] a sample library and Word document that is exhibiting this crashing problem - along with the crash log file and detailed steps on how to reproduce the crash.   Clearly, this is something we would like to try to address in the upcoming X2.01 patch but we need more details. Personally, I can not seem to reproduce this bug nor did it come up with any of our beta testers during the development of EndNote X2 for the Macintosh.   If anyone can spare a few minutes to send in more details, this could be a huge help.   Thanks,   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development />

I have exactly the same problem as JWill described here and also used re-formatting the library but to no avail. In my case I inserted an EndNote reference in a table but I was deleting sections in my report with many references as well, so not sure to which activity the problem relates.   I have Copy + Pasted the whole document into a new Word file but that doesn't solve the problem (although it reduced the size by 80%). I've checked Google and this seems to be a recognised error message related to Visual Basic.   Typically these problems arise close to deadlines, it would be great if I could get either an answer online or otherwise an email from Technical Support to resolve this problem.   Many thanks.

In the meantime, put Word into draft view, and the problem disappears. Not entirely satisfactory, but it does the job.......   Best,   Ian

As far as I can tell, EndNote has the following "policy" with regard to bugs:     1. Release a new version that is full of bugs and undocumented behavior.   2. Never release any intermediate ("point") versions that fix these bugs.   3. Release a new version that does fix most of the old bugs, while also introducing a ton of new problems.     Since these guys basically have a monopoly on bibliographic software, I guess we just have to live with it.

Leanne's posting was referring to author-date styles, like Harvard or APA.   If you are using a footnote style, I think the best option is to insert the original reference in the footnote. Then type in the footnote: ", quoted in " and insert the citing reference. The only problem is that you will get a full stop after the first reference. You can edit the Chicago 15A style in EndNote to remove the full stop at the end of the references in the footnotes, but this can create a few other problems (I think, for example, you would get some redundant spaces before page numbers in repeat citations).    Using the above procedure, you will get two references in the bibliography, one for each source. For the original source, you could insert text into a custom field in the reference in your library containing the full note: Quoted in John Smith, etc. Then you would have to edit the output style to add that field at the end of references in the bibliography.   EndNote has never coped well with footnote styles. I wish Thomson would put some work into improving this, but I guess the problems are too complex and the market too small.

Thank you, John! Your suggestions make good sense. I'll give them a try. Right now I have the original source listed in plain text before the citation of secondary source in my footnote. If I can't figure out how to customize my fields and edit the output style, I suppose I will just have to edit the bibliography manually, alas.   Thanks again, Lynn

Sounds like the DATA folder which is the siamese twin of your user friendly enl library wasn't copied to the new computer...starting with version 8 and all thereafter, for every library you create there is an automatically created/updated DATA folder labeled yourlibrarynameDATA folder..its purpose is to rebuild your library if it is corrupted.   Can you still go back to your old hard drive and find the DATA folder for the ENX1 library?  or perhaps it is on your new computer but in a different drive?  If you locate it, just move it to the drive with your enl file and all should be well..   If you can't locate the DATA folder contact EN tech support http://www.endnote.com/support/entechform.asp and ask if you have options for them to rebuild the library.   good luck, virginia

Me too. I have the same problem. And I have not soluted it. My OS is Vista with SP1 32bit version. Office 2007 was installed, and updated to SP1 later. After I installed Endnote X2, when I open a Word document as double click at the first time after I start up the OS, this error message shows "Windows cannot find file, please ......" . The Word will start up with a empty window, the document will not be opened. But when I open it 2nd time, it works well. I tried to repair the office using the Office Diagnostics, but days later, the problem will come back. Anyone help me to resolve it. THanks!

I have explored this problem further.  It definately does not occur with any documents when endnote is not enabled.  I have tried with several documents, both new for testing and old, and all print fine.  BUT, when I open the properties dialog in the print box, Vista essentially locks up.  I cannot select any other tabs or windows.   I am forced to Cntrl-Alt-Del and reboot.  Even the task manager is frozen so I cannot just disable word or endnote or the print dialog.   I will try this on another vista machine I guess.   Javaslinger

Virginia is correct. Since version 8 EndNote has been technically "unlimited" in file size or number of records. Admittedly, "unlimited" is a pretty hard number to verify but we routinely test internally with libraries with as many as half a million records with no issues. As with most other applications, EndNote's performance with large files will be substantially impacted by an individual computer's processor speed and available memory.   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development

Any upgrade leaves the libraries intact.  It is always prudent to save them somewhere outside of the program folders.  Be sure if you are moving files, that you take the Library itself and the Library.DATA folders too.

If you still have EndnoteX, the best thing to do is to Go to File> send to: compress library.  Save that file to your flash drive.  Don't delete the library from your hard drive though.   uninstall X and install X2.  Your existing libraries should still be where ever they were.  Your new version of Endnote X2 will probably remember most of the preference settings that are relevant including the default library.  You probably won't need the backup.    In fact, play with the new version a bit.  if you mess up your library, then you still have that back up.    There should be no problem opening the Endnote X version in X2.

Thank you John for once again sharing the wonderful Endnote work at University of Queensland. We also created instructions for collaboration with Endnote. The most interesting part of our project was interviewing various researchers to learn how they collaborate and how they use Endnote.

I have also encountered this error with Word 2008 and EndNote X1, but I have not been able to find a permanent solution.  http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/Install/faq1.asp helped for a bit, but before long the user started getting the error again.   We've noticed that the "Libraries used" tab on the Format Bibliography config screen contains an empty text box, even when one or more libraries are open in EndNote.  This problem also happens no matter which style or Word document format we're using.  However, the user's other system has no such problem.   Any suggestions?

I am using Endnote X.0.2    From where are you exporting references (Web of Knowledge from the text below)?   I think you need to change your security settings (or maybe can cirumvent by hold down the ctrl key?), because you don't want it to download the file, you want Endnote to open.  --- and then it asks what library you want to add the references to (Which gets a bit tedious each time).

Hi Leanne,   thanks for your reply! Makes sense to me, since I don't want to download anything. BUt my main obstacle is in that blasted   "To protect your security, IE blocked this site from downloading files to your computer."   message. I can't find any info on how to disable it. I have a feeling that once I do that I should be able to save.   As for why I'm exporting from Web of Science, I am doing a literature review and have to go through lists of possible articles. The fastest way I know to cull titles is to just tick off the marked list and then export the lot to my Endnotes. I can to this at uni, but not at home.   Greg

Elsewhere in the forum (http://forums.thomsonscientific.com/ts/board/message?board.id=en-general&message.id=122#M122) Jason noted In regard to - "Is there any limitation on the length of the name of the PDF file?" - EndNote does not have its own specific limit. However, the Windows operating system typically imposes a limit to the overall length of a file "path" to a maximum of 244-260 characters - depending on the exact conditions/version of the operating system. EndNote's attached files are impacted by this Windows limitation as are nearly all other files used on a Windows-based computer.   I would recommend moving the PDF / or the EndNote library (including .data folder) in question to a location that is not deeply nested in a set of folders and see if this resolves the issue.  So, it doesn't look like it is too long unless your library is deeply nested.  How are you attaching your PDFs (drag and drop to the item in the library list window, Add PDF?)  Do they not appear as an icon, or are they not accessible when you try to open them?  Are there folders appearing in the PDF folder of the DATA folder?

Thanks to everyone who has sent in information to help us track down this bug.   As we are looking into it, a temporary work around that seems to avoid the crash is to simply disable Word's autoformatting of hyperlinks.   The relevant option can be disabled by going to Word's - Word:Preferences:AutoCorrect:AutoFormat "as You Type" dialog and unchecking "Internet and network paths with hyperlinks".   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development

You want to turn off a CWYW preference from either the endnote word toolbar, EnPref, or the endnote toolbars, Endnote tools, "Cite while you write preferences" - and turn off "open endnote when word is opened".  Then  when you want endnote to open, just click on the EN  button, and it will open.    Look at some of the other options there and turn them off, or on as you prefer. For example, if you would rather NOT have CWYW as an automatic feature.  Once a new document has been created, this has no effect on that specific document, and is only applied to new word documents.  Turning it on and off on a previously created document is controlled thru the format bibliography menu.    New users will also want to go thru the Endnote preferences (in Endnote, Edit, Preferences), in particular to set the default library you want to open automatically, and just look at some of the other options available there.

Did you download the references from PubMed using the EndNote connection file? I think this is essential. Then you have the link back to PubMed in the URL field of each reference. I don't think it will work otherwise, unless you have a valid digital object identifier in the DOI field.   We initially had problems with the Find Full Text function. We discovered that this is because EndNote was detecting the Windows proxy settings on our PCs. Here we use a proxy on staff machines that requires us to authenticate when we access external websites. EndNote has no means of authenticating, so it was not able to send any requests to external servers.  The workaround to this was to clear the proxy settings. The easiest way to do this is in Internet Explorer. Click on Tools>Internet Options>Connections>LAN Settings, and then uncheck all boxes.

This sound like Windows issue and not an EndNote issue. I can't see how endnote could break a thumbnail unless a program was installed and redirected the usual word extensions to it self, and then was uninstalled.    I would assume if your patron try right clicking on the File's icon and choose open with (or double click on it and it asks what to open it with), select Microsoft word as the program and tick the box to say always open this file type with this program, it should reassociate the extension with word.    Alternatively, open my computer, select tools, folder options and go to the file type  tab.  sort on Extensions, and go down the the DOC, extension and see what it is associated with.  There are a series of extensions normally associated with Microsoft Word.  Click on Change button and associate it with Microsoft Word.    (using MS Word 2003, Window XP, Endnote X.0.2)

What do you mean "any"?  It will ask if any in the {curley brackets} if that is the selected EndNote temporary citation delimiter in Endnote preferences settings.  If you use those alot, then you can change the deliminter to  [square brackets], for example or some other pair of symbols.  (edit, preferences, "temporary citation").

Sorry missed the other part.--    Stephen van Evera, you need to enter it as "van Evera, Stephen" - it is the only way Endnote can figure out what is the surname and what is a first and middle name.  - and if you want van to not be used in the alphabetization, you need to add that to the preferences - sorting (don't use to sort).  It is always best to enter author names as surname, first name or initials.  Initials need to be separated by a space, or they will be truncated as if they were a first name, when the style requires initials.

Although the affiliation data appears on the web version of this record, they are not including that data in the record that they export to EndNote, ProCite and Reference Manager.   If the affiliation data was included in a field tagged: AD  - , then EndNote would import it into the Author Address field.

In our continued work on cost effective wastewater heavy metal removal agents and methods using local material, this study examines the interactions of chromium(III), copper(II), zinc(II), cadmium(II), mercury(II) and lead(II) cations with natural mixed clay minerals from Tundulu in Malawi using extended X-ray absorption fine structure (EXAFS) spectroscopy. The mixed clays were previously characterised and found to contain illite, low ordered kaolinite, mixed layer minerals and the non-clay mineral carbonate fluoroapatite with a mean pHPZC of 9.63. The EXAFS analyses provided qualitative evidence that oxygen atoms occupy the first coordination shells in all the studied central atoms. The metal species on the clay mineral surfaces seem to be adsorbates and/or precipitates of hydrolysis products. Chromium(III) forms a polynuclear hydrolysis complex on the mineral surface with Cr-O bond and Cr...Cr distances of 2.00 and 3.03 Å, respectively, which is indicative of a chain structure with edge sharing CrO6 octahedra. Copper(II) is bound to phosphate groups on the surface at low pH and has a first shell of coordinated oxygen atoms with Jahn-Teller distortion as revealed by different Cu-O bonds of 1.96 Å for the equatorial ones, at 2.30 and 2.65 Å for the axial oxygens, and a Cu-P distance at 3.29 Å is distinguished as well. Upon treatment at neutral pH copper(I) oxide seems to be the main precipitation product on the clay surface. At neutral pH zinc(II) forms also polynuclear hydrolysis complexes with Zn-O bond and Zn...Zn distances of 2.01 and 3.11 Å, respectively, which shows the presence of edge sharing ZnO4 tetrahedra. Cadmium(II) is adsorbed to the clay surfaces as a six-coordinated CdO6 complex in octahedral fashion, but it is not possible to distinguish if cadmium is hydrated or partly hydrolysed. Mercury(II) is present as linear O-Hg-O units but without any observable Hg...Hg distance at high pH showing that mercury(II) is hydrolysed but not present as mercury(II) oxide. At low pH, linear O-Hg-Hg-O units are present showing that mercury(II) is reduced to mercury(I). No precise chemical environment around the lead(II) could be obtained for the lead(II) treated clays due to formation of different hydrolysis structures with multiple coordination numbers by lead(II) salts on the mixed clays.

Sorry for your frustration.   The power of Endnote is that you can edit a style to suit the particular journal's requirements. It is, in fact, dangerous to assume that just because a journal style is available in Endnote, that it is exactly correct, as journals change their minds over time.   Editing a preexisting style is pretty easy, although it usually takes a bit of tweaking. When you open the style manager (from edit > output styles) you can view style previews, and try to pick one that is closest. Then "edit" it and save it as a new name. You might then have to open the manager again to select it and get it to display in your list. The PDF manual and help features of the program help with instruction on how to edit a style.   This is primarily a users' forum and it is really nice that the Endnote techs do drop in from time to time. But there is official tech support which is very good at responding, available from the http://www.endnote.com website. And there is also a style finder (albeit not very user friendly) and more importantly a place to request new styles at http://www.endnote.com/support/enstyles.asp.

If you have one or more formatted Word docs, you might be able to recover some of the references by exporting the travelling library from the Word docs into a new EndNote Library. Of course, you don't get keywords, abstracts etc. but still it is better than nothing.   I assume you don't have a copy of the Library stored somewhere else?   Sorry, no suggestions for where they've gone!

Has this been solved?   It has happened a few times here, sometimes we can fix by unformatting, saving as new doc then reformatting. Sometimes it seems to happen when the Word doc is too long i.e. someone has written a thesis as one Word doc not as chapters. Usually when we separate into chapters it resolved itself.   Would be interested in knowing what the solution was for you.   thanks

What version of Endnote?     Did you move the ENL file to a new place thus losing the .DATA folder?    Is the data folder still in existence and does it have anything in it?  You can reconstruct a library from the data folder.    see http://www.adeptscience.co.uk/kb/article/DABE

You can only set one default reference type. For connection files to library catalogues, this would normally be Book.   Most library catalogues don't contain many journal articles, although they often have audiovisual material, maps and theses.   To get the connection file to identify reference types which do not match the default, you edit the Templates within the connection file. If you open the Library of Congress connection file, and look at the first line(s) of the templates for Audiovisual Material, Map or Thesis, you will get some idea of how this is done. These rows at the top of the template which define the reference type are called Reference Type Tags. You will find more information on this in the "Filters" chapter in the EndNote manual.   Identifying journal articles might be difficult. You have to find some data in the journal article MARC records which is unique to journal articles. Perhaps they have a 773 tag? If so, your reference type tag might look something like:      773       `.`   This would tell EndNote that any references which had a period in the 773 field were Journal Articles. You can have more than one reference type tag in a template.

Here are some suggestions for improving the accuracy of the EndNote X2 Find Full Text feature:   - You should be IP authenticated to any premium full text resources that you might want EndNote to attempt to connect to.   - If you are associated with an institution that has access to ISI Web of Knowledge, create a free personalized account and log-in. If your institution does not have "custom journal links" set-up for  ISI Web of Knowledge, ask your librarian to do this - this is easy and free.   -  If you are associated with an institution that has access to EndNote Web, create a free account and log-in. Also be sure your account information is complete in the EndNote - Preferences - EndNote Web panel.   - If DOI information is available for the records you want EndNote to try to find full text for, be sure this is in the "DOI" field in the EndNote record.   Also, we are in the process of adding some improvements to the accuracy and performance of the EndNote Find Full Text feature for the upcoming X2.01 patch. So,it might be worth retrying some full text searches with the patch installed. We plan to have the patch available by the end of October.   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development />

John's suggestion is really the best option for the time being. Clearly, if EndNote would enable "Direct Export" files - from EBSCO - or anywhere else - to pick up the settings from the manual "Import" dialog - text translation, import option, etc., these problems would be solved automatically for everyone.   This is something that we have had on our "to do" list for some time and hope to finally get to very soon. This thread certainly serves as further justification for proritizing this enhancement.   Jason Rollins, EndNote Product Development

I think you need to remove the vertical bar after Retrieved from.   But you will have to ensure that you only have data in the Department/Division field of your references in cases where you wish to give a link to that organisation's website.   And don't forget that Department/Division is an author field, so the normal rules apply: put a comma at the end of a corporate name.

Now I can import my library records with more than one Reference Type. As John said, I follow ideas of LoC and for Journal Article and Conference Paper, I use tag 773. subfield $t as Journal or Conference Name and subfield $g as Volume, Issue no, Page no, etc. for Journal Article and Date, Location, Page no for Conference Paper. I use subfield $n for differentiation of whether Journal Article or Conference Paper and put in Connection Template first row. Then almost are working.   But at tag 773, subfield g, I entered page no for example pp. 34-40. But after imported to EndNote, "pp." is missing and only 34-40 is appeared. Other data such as "Vol. xx, No. xx", etc. are appeared.   Because our library index papers of our faculty members and students.    With much thanks

However, the Windows operating system typically imposes a limit to the overall length of a file "path" to a maximum of 244-260 characters - depending on the exact conditions/version of the operating system. EndNote's attached files are impacted by this Windows limitation as are nearly all other files used on a Windows-based computer."   As for methods for handling pdfs, there are various strategies.  Before attaching the pdfs to the corresponding entry in your EndNote library the pdf could be saved by:  1) truncating the title, 2) using author(s) last name and publication date, 3) combination of methods #1 and #2), 4) assigning the pdf the same number as the EndNote reference entry. If you have the full version of Adobe Acrobat (Standard or Professional), you can index each pdf using the full title, author names, subject, and keywords.  Then you can either attach the indexed pdfs to your EndNote library or keep them in a separate folder and use Windows or Acrobat's search capability to locate materials.   If you are new to EndNote, it may be best to keep your pdfs with the corresponding reference but you can search the archives for further messages which may help you decide what strategy best fits your needs.

This is likely caused by Endnote thinking that you have two authors with Cook as the surname and it needs to "disambugate" them.  If you are referencing two records with Cook as the author - and they are the same author, open both records and copy the author name and initials from one and replace the other with that version.  This is usually the result of some very subtle difference between the initials, spacing or some invisible character in one or the other of the author names.

Siva,   The EN X2 online manual has instructions for importing tab-delimited files.  Check the index under "Importing -- Tab-delimited files". You will have to specify a reference tytpe for each record. If you have only one type of reference, you can specify that type as default. Secondly, "all field names and reference type names in the file must be identical to those in EndNote. See the List of Reference Types for a listing of all of the reference types and field names."  Thirdly, you may wish to parse your "vol" field into volume and issue.  Your image shows volume and issue in the same column.   In my experience, converting spreadsheet or word processing files is never 100% successful. You may need to weight the time factor of trying to import your excel file versus finding the records  in an online database and importing them or using a connection database.   Good luck!  Emily

Journal templates in Endnote were implemented once upon a time, but didn't turn out to be very popular or used very often.  I suspect they aren't working on this area in development, but are reluctant to remove a feature that some users might expect in the upgrades.  I suspect the same is true of the Figure/Tables handling.    Just my opinion though!

Usually you don't want the text to appear in the record field, just the numbers, as different styles have different punctuation and font requirements for the output.  So I would suggest that Vol and No.  shoudn't be there and neither should the pp.

Though, I still can add authors, subject, title, etc. using document properties.   Do you have any idea or suggestion?   Thanks, Anar I misunderstood your prior message and gave you instructions on inserting information (author, title, subject, keywords) in the pdf instead of creating the index.  So here's how to create an index for a pdf:   1. Open the Acrobat pdf then go to the toolbar and select Advanced> Document Processing> Manage Embedded Index>.  2. When the "Manage Embedded Index" dialogue box appears, click the Embed Index> button.   To learn more about indexing, click the "Help" link on the Acrobat toolbar.  You'll find more information on creating pdf indexes (including batch processing) and searching pdfs.  (Very helpful in guiding the process and thinking about indexing pdfs.)   Please check your version of Adobe Acrobat as the indexing capability may limited to the professional version.

Thanks for the help. I was able to successfully import all my records into endnote.. There were few hiccups intially due to spelling mistakes in the field,then few due to the tab or extra spacing between the fields and then a few due to the paragraph mark in the first line was away by a few spaces(one needs to view the text file in word to confirm the location of tabs and paragraph marks). Then finally there was a problem due to a  line break within a cell in my excel sheets and end note considered it as two different records.So finally I removed those linebreaks within a cell and then I was ble to import alll   So to sum up if we have good excel sheets we can get good endnote libraries... Thanks once again for the help.   regards Sivanand Somasundaram

Further regarding two separate reference types to try to accommodate organisation names appearing/not appearing in the APA retrieval statement: This is not just an issue for Reports, but in fact with pretty much any reference type that is retrieved via the Internet. Personally I think the lack of any if-then syntax in EndNote output styles precludes EndNote coping well with the complexities of a referencing style such as APA.   I've had a bit of a play with using the Department/Division field, but can't see how it works if the reference doesn't have an organisation name in the retrieval statement (which is the commonest situation).   Apart from somewhat munting the URL field by including the organisation name within it, I still think this is the most practical solution - particularly if the EndNote user is only/mainly using APA. The template I suggested earlier works for both print and electronic reports without leaving a hanging "Retrieved from" statement. (By the way, the addition of database in the retrieval statement is there because we suggest this reference type for other formats that arise in APA).

I played around and found a workaround. However, the question how to display all information saved in one reference entry still remains open.   Workaround: Open: Tools -> Subject Bibliography -> click each of the entries and see what kind of data they show.   I did that and found that in "Sections" there was all my lost data. So I changed Edit-> Preferences -> Reference Types, and I added sections to all references, and then all the data was displayed. The problem was that I also had forgotten that I had saved the data in the Sections field.   So my question remains: How can all data be displayed that bekongs to one reference?

Thanx Leanne for your suggestion. Playing around with Reference Types helped me personally to find a messy workaround for my specific problem. I have described the workaround (by showing  Tools-> Subject Bibliography) see http://forums.thomsonscientific.com/ts/board/message?board.id=en-howto&thread.id=489   However, we still do not know how all data that has been saved for one reference can be displayed without the need to play around and try out severeal new fields. It MUST be possible!  This is a basic functionality of a database system, right? That is why I do not put the SOLVED mark on this question, okay?   cheers isabel

(|Year|.*Date|). Title| (|Type|*No.*ReportNumber|)|.*City|:*Institution.|.|*{Document Number)|*`Retrieved from`*Name of Database*`database.`|*`Retrieved from`*URL|*`Retrieved from`*Department/Division*URL2|   -- * indicates the Link Adjacent Text command

Thank you for your reply. But if you see in Library of Congress, Examples at below link, http://www.loc.gov/marc/bibliographic/bd773.html You will see there is page number p. Volume Vol. etc.. Therefore I also like to put the pp. or Vol. or No. etc.   Besides tag no. 773, which tag number and subfield, I should use to describe the Journal article volume, issue no, page no, etc? Our library is using US MARC 21 format. Though I put pp. xxx in tag 773, when I import from online connection, pp. is disappeared in EndNote.   Please kindly suggest me if you know it.

It sounds to me like CWYW has been turned off.  Have you tried manually "format bibliography"?    In X2 it is "instant formating" where, if CWYW is off, it says "turn on".  In some other versions it say "enable".    This can get turned off, if you unformat the references at some point, or sometimes it just gets turned off.    The other thing to check is which style is being used to format the paper, although I don't think there is any default options that would leave in the record number.    But - I just noticed this-- Is it really a regular parenthesis and not curley brackets?  If this was put in manually, Endnote may not be recognizing it as a endnote citation?  replace the (_) with {_}

OK, but I have the same original problem.  I have a fairly large document created by combining several smaller ones.  Each one was created using different EndNote Libraries (different co-authors).  So now the full document bibliography does not have the correct order.  It should be in the order the citations appear in the text, but it's not.  For example, the first citation in the document is not [1], instead it's [10].   The citation numbers do match up correctly to the Bibliography numbers.  But I can't get it to re-order properly.

But somewhere in the document there is a [1]?  It looks like the style you are using is perhaps alpha rather than the order cited?  What style are you using to format the document?  If you open that style for editing, how is the Sort order set in the Bibliography section?

Yes, there is a [1] in the document.  I'm using IEEE style in EndNote X2.  The Sort order is set to "Order of appearance", just as in your gif.  The ordering that comes out is close to order of appearance, but there are some significant departures from it.

Okay the other time I have seen this happen is if there are figure legends in text boxes with references.  Word (and subsequently Endnote) considers  these items at the front or first, and so the references imbedded in them, are counted first. This problem can be solved by using a frame instead of a text box. Text boxes are part of the "graphics layer", while frames are part of the "text layer". See http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/CWYW/faq21.asp for discussion and how to make the conversion.

The purpose of an EndNote filter or connection file is to import raw data: just the volume number, just the page numbers, etc.   EndNote has output styles that take that data, and add any necessary abbreviations (like v. or vol. or pp.) to produce references formatted in many bibliographic formats.   However, if you really want the EndNote connection file to import the pp. before the Pages, you probably need to edit your connection file. Open it for editing, and go to the "Field Editing" section. Select Field Editing for the Pages field. You should see that EndNote is removing abbreviations like "p."  Change those settings.

If the paragraph where the bibliography is inserted is formated as Bold, which might happen for example if you but the bolded "Reference" heading and then hit carriage return,  or if there is no paragraph symbol after the heading "References" which is bolded then the references might come out bolded.  If you select the whole of the references including paragraph symbols before and after the formatted references (just to be sure) and unbold everything and then reformat the paper, I think you will find that the appropriate bolding of specific sections will be restored.  Alternatively delete the bibliography and make sure there is a  paragraph after the title heading is not bolded and is not a "heading" papagraph type (body text or normal).    To see the paragraph symbols, you can click on the reverse P in the word toolbar, which is right in front of the % view box.

I use Word for Mac 2004, all Service Packs installed.   Can I do something additional to reduce CPU-Load on MS Word. The only thing I found was, leaving my references completely unformatted until the end of my work. On the other hand: I'm writing my thesis (phd), this will take me a year or so yet, and there will be a real big amount of references - what about program or document crashes, when I finally format the work (planned 250 pages) in the end?

I'm experiencing the same problem. I'm running Vista 64 Home Premium, Endnote X2 and Office 2007. The lag appears only when I try to use the process bar (switching applications, using the start menu, etc.) When I switch applications by clicking on their window there's no lag. I tried unchecking the two options in the Endnote tab in Word. That did not solve my problem. The lag is annoying and needs to be fixed desperately.   Eric

Well I can make one suggestion to you based on my own experience. Even though X2 was supposed to fix all the 64-bit problems, it seems to work even worse than X1. I uninstalled X2 and put X1 back on my 64-bit machine, THEN I unchecked the two options as it says in the workaround and now the lag is gone for the most part. So X2 is definitely defective and apparently created more problems than it fixed.   Where I'm still having the huge lag issue is when I open Outlook 2003. I know that Outlook opens Word in the background as its mail editor and, therefore, it opens the Endnote add-in with word. However, I doubled checked the CWYW options from the Endnote menu item in EndNote and the options are unchecked. But the lag is still there just like it was under Word before I unchecked the options. This just isn't going to work. I need to finish my PhD and I can't wait around for a year or two while Thomson figures this one out. Anyone have a suggestion for reference software other than RefWorks? That's my last resort but it may be the only one...
