I recently created DSI alert in OvidSP, in order to receive every week the newest references by email.
I encountered a problem when trying to import the text file in RefMan 10. I searched the internet and found a new filter: ovidweb.cap. I updated it, but it does not work: no references are imported from my text file into RefMan. Perhaps because of the version 10 of my RefMan software?
Here is the format of the text file:
Marquis BJ. Haynes CL.

The effects of co-culture of fibroblasts on mast cell exocytotic release
characteristics as evaluated by carbon-fiber microelectrode amperometry.
Biophysical Chemistry. 137(1):63-9, 2008 Sep.
In this work, carbon-fiber microelectrode amperometry (CFMA) is employed
to probe changes in the biophysical mechanism of exocytosis under varied
Has anyone got an idea to fix this?
I warmly thank you in advance for your help.
Try saving your results in the MEDLARS format, and complete reference (all fields). MEDLARS is a tagged format that looks something like the below.
PS --The filter I have from RefMan.com was a few years old and we had to make some updates so it would import some database results properly. Is there a more recent filter we can download?

Thank you. I’m going to try the medlars format. I hope that the import will be alright with the existing filter ?!
