Tips for Using EndNote in Word
Use the Edit and Manage Citation command to make changes to citations in documents. Do NOT use the Delete or Backspace keys on the keyboard to remove the citations.
If you are using footnote styles, your word processor controls the numbering and placement of the footnote and EndNote controls the formatting. So you will first need to insert the footnote using your word processor, then insert the EndNote citation into that footnote.
Handling Corporate Authors
If you are using documents authored by an organisation or government department then you will need to format the author field in a different way. By adding a comma after the author EndNote will create your reference as it is written instead of moving the last word or Surname to the front.
ie: Charles Darwin University,
If the author has a comma within the title use a double comma to ensure the citation is added correctly.
ie: Department of Environment,, Northern Territory Government

Backup your library
There are two ways of backing up your library:
To use the 'Save a Copy' command to create an exact copy of your library. Here are the steps:
The new library does not open, it is simply saved to disk.
Note: The Save a Copy command creates a [library name].ENL file as well as a [library name].DATA folder for the new library, and copies all groups and attachments to it.
To use the Compressed Library command to save a copy of your library and .data folder together in a compressed file (.enlx) which can be restored later in EndNote.
From the File menu, select Compressed Library (.enlx) and then Create.
Select the folder or drive where you are saving which will then give you a Compressed EndNote Library (filename.enlx).

Organisation of authors
To include an acronym or abbreviation of an organisation's full name in APA in-text references using EndNote, please follow these steps.
In EndNote, input the organisation's full name in the Author field, adding a comma after the final word.

With your cursor placed in the relevant in-text citation, go to the EndNote ribbon and choose Edit & Manage Citations.
In the Edit Citation pane at the bottom of the pop up window, click the Formatting drop down arrow for options, and select Exclude Author. Follow the instructions below depending on how you want the in-text citation to present:

The citation will be:
Author (Year): having chosen Exclude Author in the Edit and Manage Citations window, only type AHRC in the Prefix field. In the Word document, manually type the author's name in full in the text before the (EndNote) in-text citation.
The citation will be (note: EndNote citation highlighted):
