Two (or more) works with same date

Now I have 2-3 works with the same date, say (Jones 2010). In my former bibliographical program, when a second work with the same date was added, it would automatically add a letter, e.g. 2010a, so that the reader would know exactly which work by Jones in 2010 is referred to. How do I do that in Endnote X5?

it is the “ambiguous” seeting in the output style chosen.  Which one have you settled on?  If you attach it to a reply, we can help get that setting “engaged” if you like and attach the updated version again?

Oh, but not to this forum, (no attachments allowed) you need to be posting these in the endnote forum.  Here is just for discussion of how the forums themselves work).  – go here  - or back to community and then to the endnote forums). 

For my bibliography, the style I use in the X5 program, I use a version of the Journal of Biblical Literature updated by Endnote techs. In Word 2010 I use the footnotesI use Tyndale (author-date). I have trouble imagining that every style would not use a way to automatically distinguish dates. I am uncertain how to attach my style file here.

You can either wait until the administrators move this to an Endnote forum and then you will see an “attachments” browse box below your reply window, or start over in the correct forum.  (suggest you wait, so we don’t get redundant requiests). 

I have several works by a single author with the same date. I want Endnote X5 to distinguish the datyes such as 2010, 2010a, etc.

Here is my Journal of Biblical Literature style revised by Endnote staff (renamed by me). However this format does nmot need to distinguish dates, since it calls for distinguishing information in footnotes. In the book I am writing now I use JBL style for bibliography (no need to differentiate dates); however  in the text I use Tyndale (author-date). Here I do have to distinguish between same dates.

so from Endnote, edit> output style, and under citations, “ambiguous Citations” tocl tje bpx tjat saus add a  letter after the year box, and select the, prefered letter format 2000a, b or 2000a, 2000b and then “Save” . 

Or you can use the attached version (open and save as - remove the word copy), but then you will need to change the output style to use this newly named output style.
