Endnote not recognizing previous endnote citations

Hi,

 

I received a Word 2013 document back from an editor that was originally created with Endnote 7 and using Track changes.  The changes were accepted and new comments made.  When I try to add a reference (as requested), it no longer recognized the previous endnote citations and simply creates a new list below the previous reference list and adds my new citation as [1] and not numbered accordingly among the prior pre-existing references.

 

Is there any way to re-recognize the previous references?

Offhand can think of 2 possible situations where this might occur:

 

1.  The Endnote citations and bibliography were accidentally  converted to plain text.  (Could you check  to see if the citations/bibliography  are still connected to Endnote - just place your cursor over a citation  and see if  changes color);

2.   If Track  Changes  was used  while the document  was in   "Final Show  Markup" mode  and with  CWYW  turned  on  this has the potential  of corrupting  existing  citation  field codes  during the updating process .

 

In both cases, the only  way to  reactivate  the prior references  is to reinsert them into the document.

Re: Endnote not recognizing previous endnote citations

Alternatively, I would try to convert your endnote citations to unformatted citations in the original document (after accepting the tracked changes) and then compare that document to the document you received back from the editor (after accepting their tracked changes, and who did obviously remove all fields)  - Then you need to go thru and accept the changes the editor made, but not accept any of the citations.  

 

Probably less tedious than reinserting all the citations.

What I did and worked for those word files that had more number of references recognized in my EndNote is as follow

1. In your word document, go to EndNote tap and click on "Update Citations and Bibliography". This action will show the number of recognized references in your EndNote library which is apparently fewer.

2. In your word document, go to EndNote tap and click on "Export to EndNote

3. Select "Export Traveling Library"

4. Choose "An existing EndNote library" and click OK

5. Done! Now you have the remaining references in your EndNote.

 

Hope it works for you!
