We use modified author-date style references in which ambiguous references are labeled a, b, c, alphabetically by title. Never thought I’d have this question, but it might happen soon: What if I have more than 26 references with the same author and the same year? Can EndNote start from the beginning again using double suffixes (aa, bb, etc.) or some other disambiguation method?
This is a real possibility because we are working on a large report in which we cite many documents from just a few government agencies, and there are already multiple ambiguous records in my library. I did a dummy trial, inserting 50 records from my main library (all our own documents, Windward 2010) and found that after z, I got nonsense suffixes (tildes, vertical lines) or blank boxes.
I can’t find anything in my EndNote manual (version X2) about this. Am I in big trouble here?
