If you open a Word document and your references have been replaced by blocks of code (as image below) don't panic!

Image of blocks of code

Word has defaulted to showing you the field codes (computer coding behind each EndNote reference) instead of your formatted references.

To switch back click:

  • File > Options > Advanced
  • Under the Show Document Content heading untick the box Show field codes instead of their values
  • Click on OK

Your document should return to normal.
