I keep getting an error message “A COM exception has occurred. Command failed” when I try to update citations and bibliography in Word for Mac. I first got this message after editing the reference style I was using (removing the parentheses from in-text citations). I have tried using the original version of the reference style, removing all the comments from the Word document, restarting and even reinstalling both Word and EndNote. Nothing seems to work, I’m completely desperate! The document is about 85 pages long and has over 150 individual citations, so I cannot check the codes for all of them manually. Does anyone have any ideas as to what else could be causing this? Also, what are the implications of getting this error message - will I not be able to make any edits to my citations or?..
Thank you for any and all advice xx
