I'm struggling to figure out how to have page numbers in my in-text citations when I need them but not when I dont. When i need to quote something, according to the referencing style i'm using which is Harvard I need to have the page number in the in-text citation eg 'Kelly, 2007, p.9'
However for most references i dont need the page number and it's displaying as 'Kelly, 2007, p.'
How do I get the 'p.' to only show if there is a page number actually filled in for that reference? I'm really hoping I dont have to go back and manaually change them all HELP

You want your citation to look like this, except that the * should be "link adjacent text" characters which look like tiny tiny diamonds in endnote, and are available from the "insert fields" drop down list. the p.^pp. will use the appropriate choice if you have one page or multiple pages. The | characters are added ensurance that the comma won't be included when there aren't any page numbers, and are called "force separation" in the insert fields dropdown, but you can also use the keyboard pipe symbol. (the link adjacent characters do not copy and paste to a message here, hence the need to give the long explanation!)

Thanks so much for your speedy response Leanne. My formatting seemed to already be what you had suggested unless i'm missing something subtle which is possible since i find this so confusing! Unfortunately it doesnt seem to rectify things. References where I dont actually need a page number and havent imnputted one, still show the p. except now its p.^pp (see attached pictures). I really appreciate your help if you have any further suggestions

Those characters don't look exactly the same as mine do. See image and I attach a copy of an output style (in a zip folder, because the forum won't allow style file attachment types!) with the right characters, Try opening it (it is in the zipped folder) in endnote and carefully copy and paste it into your citation template.

Have you saved the output style to a new name and then ensured that your word document is using the new one. You are still seeing a non-breaking space rather than the "link adjacent text" symbol I see on windows though.
