Erroneous use of ADDIN!

Hi all,

I have an EndNote problem (I think) although I’ve never used EndNote. However, I suspect the person who created the source doc that I’m working in has. It seems that the last 100 pages of this particular document, which doesn’t even include a reference list, is all part of an ADDIN EN.REFLIST field. Everything. Basically, if I want to add a comment to a paragraph on page 130, because everything is included in a single field, the entire last 100 pages becomes highlighted as part of the comment box. It’s horrible! Is there some way for me to turn off the field but to keep all the text AND the formatting, because redoing all of this is just out of the question. As I said, I’ve never used EndNote, nor do I have access to the software. Anything you can tell me would be so helpful! Thanks.

Have you tried: 1) pressing Alt+F9; 2) checking if the “Show field codes instead of their values” setting in MS Word has been disabled (instructions below). 

If Alt+F9 and the show fiekd codes is disabled and the problem persists you might contact the author and ask the person to remove the EndNote field codes by converting it to plain text (see attached image) – or contact tech support.
