First  it appears you have your temporary delimiters set to normal parentheses rather than curly parentheses, hence the second image you posted. 

 

Second, it maybe that it can't find your selected output style, or maybe autoformatting is off (but that isn't the case with the next image, as it is trying to update the citations).  

 

First change the temporary citation delimters either in the format bibliography menu (for this document only) or in the preferences (for all documents if that is where you changed it) to curly brackets.  

 

Once this happens, maybe the citation will also update.  Remember, the record numbers might not match if you retrieved the library from the travelling library.

Not the output style.  The temporary delimiters.  see 1st attached image (to adjust in word).  see your endnote preferences to adjust in Endnote desktop. 

 

But if that is what you are seeing, if you double click on the matching record it is finding, it should insert it according to your output style.

Really thanks i do that and it solve the problem of the attached jpg.

but the problem of (the record numbers  not match if you retrieved the library from the travelling library) not solved, so what can i do to use my document and add another citations and still have the same output style instead of {Singh, 2011 #1} for new added citations?

Sorry, but I think you will have to reattach all the citations to the new record numbers in your new library, once.

Endnote is pulling up the closest match in the views you are showing.  You just need to double click on the right one, once, going thru your manuscript, when endnote pulls up that window.
