When automatic import is enabled how to I ensure the Abbreviated journal field is filled in

I have an abbreviated journal term list and my style is set to use the abbreviated journal name rather than the full. I am currently trying to figure out when I enable automatic import of references from a folder, how do I set up Endnote to make sure the abbreviated journal fields gets filled in?  Currently only the journal field gets automatically filled. I currently have to go into each reference I automatically imported and manually put in the abbreviated journal name.

I turn off automatic updating of the terms list, and delete the whole journal terms list and repopulate it with one endnote provides. There are great instructions in the knowledgebase on how to do this.  Then it doesn't matter what is in the record itself.  The output style settings will fix it.
