I’ve added a citation to my Word document but I need to include the page number, how do I do this? Can I just type it in?
No,you can’t just type it in as the changes won’t be permanently stored and you may corrupt your Word document.
To edit citations you must use command options available in EN or Word - if you try to edit the body of the text in Word, the changes will not be permanently stored. Place your cursor in the reference to be amended then click on Edit and Manage Citations.
You can add information in the Prefix or Suffix fields, for instance 'See' in the prefix or page numbers in the suffix fields.
Please note: do not use the Pages field for page numbers, use the Suffix field to ensure they are displayed correctly.
Below is a video giving an overview of inserting and managing citations with Cite While You Write (CWYW), including how to add page numbers.
