  5. For “Change,” select “Replace whole field with.”
  6. The the box provided, enter the information you would like to be included in that field.’
  7. Click OK to make the replacement.
  8. Click the References menu and select “Show All References.”

Hello!! I need to change “https” to “http” on URL field on 700 references because with “https” it looks weird on the word document, and I dont want to do it one by one, do you know how to do it automatically? Thanks!


In the library view in Endnote, you can first search for the records you want to perform this search and replace and have those records “showing”.  – (remember this can’t be undone, so you may want to back up your library by compressing it to an enlx file, or copying the library and associated .DATA folder to a new location).  

Under Edit (in the windows version) there is a Search /Replace option (ctrl+R) where you can put https: and replace with http: (uncheck word match) and select the appropriate field (URL).
