CWYW makes it easy to insert citations and create reference lists in your Word document. If you need to amend, edit or delete these citations and/or references, it is important you follow the guidance below to ensure you don't run into any issues or problems. There are some small differences depending on whether you have EndNote Online or EndNote Desktop selected within your Word document - see further information under the switching EndNote accounts section above - and these are detailed in the guidance below.
To change the referencing style you can select an alternative from the drop down Style box under the EndNote tab in Word. This is the same whether using EndNote Online (as in the image below) or EndNote Desktop.
The change will be instant.
If you can't find the style you want in the Style drop down, check our FAQs section
You may need to edit a citation once it's been inserted in your document, for example to add page numbers for a direct quote or to remove the author's surname or the year published if you have already mentioned these in the body of your text. To make these changes you must use the 'Edit Citation(s)' option under the EndNote tab - if you try to make the changes manually in your text the changes will be over written by EndNote the next time you open your document.
There are slight differences in how you do this depending on whether you have your EndNote preference in Word set to Online or Desktop.
You can add information in the Prefix or Suffix fields, for instance 'See' in the prefix or page numbers in the suffix fields.
To add a page number:
Please note: do not use the Pages field for page numbers unless you know that your style (e.g. APA 7) uses this field. If you are unsure use the Suffix field.
If you make a mistake in your Word document and wish to delete an in-text citation or reference do not use the delete key in Word as normal. When you insert citations from EndNote you create a link between EndNote and Word which contains lots of computer coding. If you use the delete key some of this coding can be left behind and corrupt your document.
