Apa 6th Author First Name is Full, Not Initials

I am using Endnote 6th Edition. I have authors in the the following format (last, first) in the record. 


Aguinis, Herman
Gottfredson, Ryan K.
Joo, Harry


I have selected the Apa 6th edition style, which wants the first name as an inital, but EndNote includes the entire first name. The reference shows up as:


Aguinis, Herman, Gottfredson, Ryan K., & Joo, Harry. (2013). Best-Practice Recommendations for Defining, Identifying, and Handling Outliers. Organizational Research Methods, 16(2), 270-301. doi: 10.1177/1094428112470848


Obviously, the first name is not being initalized by EndNote. I have looked at editing the style, and played with 'Use initials only for primary authors with same name' and other settings but cannot seem to fix the problem.


Can someone suggest a solution?


Thank you.

Re: Apa 6th Author First Name is Full, Not Initials

Does Herman show up more than once in the document?  (once with initials, once full name?)
