How to enter an edited book (as a whole, not a book section)?

Hi, I have been really struggling with quoting the whole edited book. I use APA style.

If I enter all the details as required in Endnote (choosing a book and writing editors where editors are named), then this is what I get in references:

Translocal China: Linkages, identities and the reimagining of space. (2006). London and New York: Routledge, Taylor and Francis Group.

NO EDITORS at all.

Moreover, this is what appears in text: (Translocal China: Linkages, identities and the reimagining of space, 2006)

Those version are incorrect as editors are supposed to be mentioned.

If I write editors as authors and add (eds) at the end,eds is perceived as E. (I guess a part of a name?) 

If I write (eds) as a new line in endnote, it is treated as a new surname.

I am really stuck! Please, help!

there is a reference type called Edited Book and you should use that. It has a field called “editors” rather than “authors”.  

You shouldn’t have to specify the ed. parts as they are produced by the output style itself.  the attached record would be formated as

Furth, M., & Greaves, M. (Eds.). (1989). Molecular Diagnostics of Human Cancer. Cold Spring Harbor, NY: Cold Spring Harbor Laboratory Press.
