Bibliography Order - User Def 1

Is it possible to order bibliographies by a "User Def 1" input from Reference Manager?


I am generating the bibliography through word and only have two "bibliography order" options (1) citation and (2) author/date/time.


In User Def 1 we list the reference document label. We need to be able to order the bibliography in alphabetical order of these label names.

Re: Bibliography Order - User Def 1

There is no way to do this through the Cite While You Write tools, but there is a workaround:


1. Go to the Tools menu > Change Database Sort Order.

2. Set the sort order to "User Def 1."

3. Click Sort.

4. Click OK and Close the Sort.

Note: You can also click on the heading for User Def 1 column to sort by that field.


You can now use the "Generate from Reference List" command to create a bibliography from your database. Check the items you need if you do not need your whole database. Click the Tools menu > Bibliography > Generate from Reference List. Here you can define additional settings and set the Destination to File. This will allow you to create a formatted bibliography in the order sorted by the database.
