Correcting in-text citation mistakes
If you notice an error in an author's name (e.g. a spelling error) in your Word in-text citations, do not attempt to correct it directly in the document - this can disrupt the coding and corrupt your document.
Instead, do the following:
EndNote 20 Edit & Manage Citation(s) (0:50)
EndNote 20 removing citations (0:45)
