I use Endnote X4 on a Mac with Snow Leopard. At some point I created multiple libraries and I may have used both in a single document that has 215 notes at this point. Both libraries, let’s call them A and B, seem to have been updated with new items (but not always the same items I fear) around the time I was finishing the document. For example, Library A has an item added on July 29 and Aug 4th. Library B has other items added on July 25th. Both libraries refer to the same topic. I believe I may have also deleted some items from one of the libraries, Library A. I keep getting a message asking me if I want to empty the trash. I keep replying no (cancel) because I want to replace the deleted items but don’t know how. I can’t even find the trash location to do this.
So I have a major problem. I have to add some notes to the text and enter bibliographic references from one of these two libraries. I also have to delete some notes with references. But I don’t know which library I should use. I don’t know if all the items in one or the other or both libraries will match the Endnote refernces in my word document.
Is there a way to compare all the references in one library with another? Is there a way in Word (for Mac 2011) to find out which library was used?
I have a deadline for this so I’m hoping I can resolve this easily.
Thanks in advance for any help.
