Converting Word Citations

The Microsoft® Word toolbar includes a References tab, where you can use commands to insert Microsoft Word footnote or endnote citations. These footnote and endnote citations are not used directly by EndNote's Cite While You Write feature (although you can insert an EndNote citation within a Word footnote). If you have citations already entered into Word, you can copy the reference information into your library and then convert the Word citations into EndNote Cite While You Write citations.

To export Word citations to your library:

  1. Open the Word document that contains the citations.
  2. On the EndNote tab, in the Tools group, select Export to EndNote Online and then Export Word Citations.

To export the Word master citation list to your library:

  1. Open the Word document that contains the citations.
  2. On the EndNote tab, in the Tools group, select Export to EndNote Online and then Export Word Master List.

To convert Word citations to EndNote citations within the document:

  1. Open the Word document that contains the citations.
  2. On the EndNote tab, in the Bibliography group, select Convert Citations and Bibliography and then Convert Word Citations to EndNote online.

Note

The Word citation conversion feature requires that your computer have the Microsoft .Net Framework installed.
