More than One References Headings

Hi

 

i can not seem to save a word file with endote refereneces and then open the file and add new references to the existing ones, it always seem to open a new reference heading and start as if no references allready exist.

 

how do i add new references into the origional list of references i created???

Re: More than One References Headings

How are you creating the document?  What are your steps and workflow?

 

You can ctrl+Y to copy a formated version of the record or selected records in endnote, and  ctrl+V to paste them into the document.  

 

Or are you exporting them or creating a subject bibliography, which is always to a new document.

Re: More than One References Headings

Check the Endnote APA 6th output style file’s “Sections” setting to confirm it’s been set to “create a bibliography at the end of the document” – and not to generate a bibliography after each section. (See attached image.) [Go to the Endnote toolbar and select Edit >Output Styles >Edit APA 6th. In the APA 6th pop-up dialog box click “Sections”.]

Re: More than One References Headings

HI

 

My work flow is as follows

 

all references are stored in end note 

i am wiriting in word and using the plug in

i go to insert citations, pick the reference and it is automatically inserted

 

however when i open the word file again and follow the same method it creates a new reference section 

see image below.

 

 

I do not know how to find the section suggested, is it in word or on end note online?

how do i find this section to turn off the creation of new references each time?

 

thank you for the help so far.

 

Brian

Re: More than One References Headings

What output style are you using (This file name would be on the Endnote ribbon in word).

 

Is anyone else viewing this document in a different program?  

 

can you zip the word file up and attach the zipped file here?  (in the attachments box, choose file when you reply). If not, make a copy and in the directory view, change the file name to be .txt (it will warn you) and then attach that file (tell us what the extention was (.xdoc or .doc or something else).

You may be getting duplicate reference sections: 1) if you’ve been using section breaks in your document ; and 2) the Endnote APA 6 output style file’s “Sections” setting is set to generate a reference list for each section.

 

To check the output style file:

  1. In Endnote, go to the Endnote toolbar and select select Edit >Output Styles >Edit APA 6th. In the APA 6th pop-up dialog box click “Sections”.
  2. Confirm/change the setting to: Create a bibliography at the end of the document.
  3. Close the output style file’s dialog box. Any modifications made to the output style file will be saved as a new file with the word “Copy” added to the file name. So adjust the settings in MS Word to use the new Endnote output style file.

Re: More than One References Headings

Sorry, thought you’re using the desktop version of Endnote. If you’re using Endnote Basic you will not be able to access and modify the APA 6th output style file. Are you accessing Endnote Basic from a university network?

 

.odt is an Open Document Text file – are you using either Open office or Google Docs? Are you able to attach this file so we may see it?

Re: More than One References Headings

otd will erase endnote fields -- it is not compatible with word fields.  That is your problem.  you can not jump between word and open office formats or you will lose your fields.
