Years missing when I import from Web of Knowledge to EndnoteX2


My problem is this:

When I upload a number of references from Web of Knowledge I find that for many the ‘year’ is empty. Now, I am conducting a meta-analysis which results in many results to manually inputing the year is both time consuming and error prone.

Is there a solution to this? Has anyone had the same problem? Is there a web of knowledge filter that I can download which will be of assistance? Is there something I can do in WOK to solve this?

Thanks Ben.


There is a problem with all versions of EndNote pre X3. A programming glitch cause only 19## and 200# to be recognised as years. There is an update for X2 which will fix your problem, you can find details in this FAQ:
