How can one display a chronological reference number in the right hand pane of Endnote?

It would be very useful to have a reference number to be displayed, no matter how one sorts the library.

Has anyone managed to do this?

I got a reponse as below:

Using the API, you could create a plug-in that numbers the references to match the documents you’ve established in a custom field and display that field where appropriate.

Surely, it would be an enhanced feature and be very useful to manage the bibliographies.

We output the data to Word files and the Word files have a number for each reference but Endnote does not diplay the reference number.

Many thanks.
