Thanks! This worked. This is really useful, I did not know about the fact that we can edit the default styles output by going to Edit → Output Styles → Edit APA 6th → Bibliography → Templates → Book Section. I write this in case somebody does not know the pathway (like I did)

I should add to this that there is a much more robust guide to modifying Styles and Reference Types than is found in the EndNote help file.
You can find the knowledge base article where the Style Guide can be downloaded from here...
This should provide good instruction for how to manipulate the style files.
I do hope this helps!

Actually it is to be like this:
Author. (Year)|. Title| (Translator, Trans.)|. In| Editor (Ed.),^(Eds.),| Book Title| (|Edition ed., Vol. Volume, pp. Pages|)|. Place Published|: Publisher|. (`Reprinted from:` Reprint Edition)|.
One of the reasons is that if it is like this: |. In |Editor (Ed.),^(Eds.),| then there will be two spaces between the "In" and the name of the article if there are no editors, and no spaces between the "in" and the editor.
However, if it is changed to this: In| Editor (Ed.),^(Eds.),| so in Endnote you have that little dot between the separator character and the Editor, there will not be two spaces between the "In" and the title of the article and you still have one space between the "In" and the editors.
Nevertheless, glad i found this forum and I was very frustrated with this.

I'm having the same issue with the JAMA output style. Many medical textbooks are written without an author identified for individual chapters. And so the required "In" is getting dropped here as well.
Can you possibly offer an updated output style for JAMA to correct this as well?

How do you want the bibliography entry to appear exactly and what reference type are you using for the record?
I see the difficulty -- having the "In: associated with book title in the absense of an editor complicates things. You might want to instead have an alternative ref type for books of this kind -- copy the book section to that template. If you don't use "Electronic Book Section", you might edit that one. and assign that ref type to the medical text chapters.
Assuming you want
Author|. Title|. In:*
Editor, ed^eds|. Translator, trans|. Book Title|. Vol Volume|. Edition ed|. Place Published|: Publisher; Year|ages|.
where the * is a placeholder for the "link adjacent" symbol/character which is a tiny diamond.
Tested and attached.

I can't thank you enough. This works perfect!
I was using book section, but will now use your suggestion of electronic book section using the modified bibliography entry.
I see the code on this website works with emotiocons, too
Very much appreciated!

APA format. If the authors of a textbook wrote the chapter I am citing, do I have to "In" and the author's names? Do I need to include the chapter title? See examples below.
