Customized Output Style Problem

Hi, 

 

I had to create a customized output style for a publication, which must include information on the original publication of a source that has been translated, reprinted, etc.

 

For example:

 

Eagleton, Terry (22001): Was ist Kultur? Eine Einführung. München: Beck. (orig. The Idea of Culture, Oxford: Blackwell Publishers Ltd., 2000).

 

The two in (22001) has been put in bold to indicate the edition. It should be superscript but had to be removed because it was invalid HTML code. Hope this makes sense.

 

The template I have created looks like this:

 

Author (|EditionYear): Title|.°Translated°by°Translator|. Edited°by°Series Editor|.°Number of Volumes°Bd|.°Band°Volume|,°Series Title|.°Place Published|:°Publisher.| (orig.°Original Publication,°Original Place of Publication:°Original Publisher,°Original EditionOriginal Year of Publication ).

 

Again 'Edition' and 'Original Edition' should be superscript and have been put in bold here instead.

 

It works mostly fine, i. e. whenever the information regarding the original publication between parenthesis is complete. However, if I only want to include the original year, as is the case mostly when it is just a reprint, the formatting breaks down:

 

Geertz, Clifford (22000): The Interpretation of Cultures: Selected Essays. New York: Basic Books. 1973).

 

As you can see the opening parenthesis and the text 'orig.' is missing before the year. I need someone more experienced with Endnot to help me fix my template so that it says (orig. 1973) or (orig. Anytown: Awesome Publisher, 2000) whenever part of the fields remain empty. I have experimented around with | and ° but I cannot seem to solve the problem. I've been stuck for weeks now and at my wits' end.

 

Where did I go wrong?

Re: Customized Output Style Problem

Here is a potential workaround:

 

As long as you plan to fill in one piece of information in the section.

 

orig.°Original Publication,°Original Place of Publication:°Original Publisher,°Original EditionOriginal Year of Publication

 

You would edit the style to be

 

|(|orig.°Original Publication,°Original Place of Publication:°Original Publisher,°Original EditionOriginal Year of Publication|)|

 

So the  ( ) will always show up in the bibliography.

Re: Customized Output Style Problem

That's it! I knew it would be something embarassingly simple like this. Now I can even do without the ° within the parentheses because the | takes care of the 'orig', too. 

 

THANK YOU!
