Problem : "Insert Selected Citation(s)" button in Word 2007


Until now, I had no problem with the integration of Endnote X to word 2007 (XP system).

Today is different. I need help.

When I select a reference in my Endnote Library - like (Name, 2008) - and I use the “Insert Selected Citation(s)” button in Word, I obtain in my word document :

{Name, 2008#XXXX}

where XXXX is a number. 

And the complete reference of (Name, 2008) doesn’t appear in my bibliography section at the end of my document.

What’s this problem?

Thanks, Julien

It appears that you have Instant Formatting disabled.  Press Alt+3 in Word and click on “Instant Formatting”.  Here you would want to make sure that the button on the left says “Disable” and click OK.


When I insert a citation from Endnote to word 2007 the default format is (Name ####). How can I change this? For example, into Name (####).

Thanks a lot


It does not work for me, with word 2015
