Modify a reference in Word

Hello,

I´m unsing Endnote X2 and I hope that someone can help me with my problem. I would like to refer to an endnote reference in my word text, but not always in the same way.

Normally it works like this:

Endnote is a helpful programm (Edwards & Jenkins, 2001).

Now I would like to use another stye as well, for exampe:

Edwards & Jenkins (2001) think that endnote is a helpful program.

Of course this should stay after the next actualization of the reference list as well. Is there a possibility to modify a reference like in my example without loosing the changes in the next acualization?

Thanks a lot for your help!

If you right click on the reference and choose “Edit Citation” from the menu that pops up, you should be able to tell endnote to exclude the author name for just that instance and it won’t revert when the bibliography is formatted. For version X2 you’ll need to type the author name manually in the sentence before the citation, but I think X5 is clever enough to put the author outside the bracketed date.
