Numbered citations and bibliography

[ Edited ]

Hello,

Ok, let me see if I can explain this properly:

I have created a new library. It could look like this:

   1. Abrahamsen, A.: blabla
   2. Nicholson, T: blabla
   3. Thompson, F: blabla

When I try to insert these citations into Word2008Mac from EndNote, they are assigned a number according to the place in the document. E.g. in my first paragraph I cite Thompson. Naturally, because Thompson so far is my only citation, the reference is [1]. However, when I later add Abrahamsen the reference is [2], not [1]. (Note that I have tried updating the refs.)

What I want is for the references to be numbered according to the alphabet, i.e. in the above example Abrahamsen SHOULD be [1] and Nicholson [2] because A appears first in the alphabet.

How do I do that?
 

I hope that I have made myself clear.


Hope to hear form you!

 

Best regards,

 

A med student.

 

PS I use mac OS X 10.5.3, newest version of Word2008Mac, newest version of EN

Re: Numbered citations and bibliography

Ok, I solved this issue by choosing Styles -> select another style -> medicine which suits my purpose.

 

But now I have another question: Is there a citation style like the one i describe in post 1 - but with [ ] instead of ( )?

 

(I have tried at least 15 styles without luck)

Re: Numbered citations and bibliography

The easiest way is to edit a style that is closest to what you want.  Save it as a new name, and change the ( ) to [ ] in the citation template.
