EndNote integration

I have EndNote 8 and recently loaded it on my new computer with windows XL and word 7.

Word 7 does not seem to see EndNote and I cannot find how to make them work together. The Word program has a very annoying ribbon at the top that makes it hard to find all of the old and useful items such as Tools, where in CWYW would be located. Word seems to want you to use their bibliography system but does not seem to be able to reach out to PubMed to pull in references.

Does anyone have an idea on how to fix what should be a simple problem?


Tool bar instructions are here: http://www.endnote.com/support/faqs/CWYW/faq43.asp

http://www.endnote.com/enword2k7.asp mentions some slight problems between the two programs.  Window XL you mean XP, which also shouldn’t be causing any problems.  I think the word 2007 interface does take some getting used to (but i have resisted the upgrade sticking with 2003). 

and you might want to read over this faq too: http://www.endnote.com/enword2k7.asp.

I would like to point out that Endnote 8 was not the most reliable build for Endnote, being the first after a major rebuild.  The newest version (currently X2 but X3 has been reported to be coming out in June) are much more reliable and have many new features.
