If you have been using a referencing style which uses in-text citations and you wish to change to a footnote style (e.g. changing from Harvard at Newcastle to OSCOLA) you will find that your citations disappear. This is because footnotes cannot be automatically generated by EndNote - they have to be inserted within Word.

You can do this manually one-by-one in Word by clicking on References > Insert Footnote and then going to the EndNote tab and inserting a citation in the normal way. The video below demonstrates how this would work in practice. 

Alternatively, if you have many references and would prefer a quicker solution, you can use a Visual Basic Macro (VBM) which has been written for us by Bob Green, Adept Scientific. Contact us via Library Help and we will send you the VBM to change your EndNote in-text citations to footnotes automatically. Please ensure you make a back-up copy of your document before using the VBM.

If you need any more help please let us know.
