GettinG Started Guide - Chapter 4: entering a reference
c. for the third author, enter:
de Young, John Robert, Jr.
The ﬁrst comma separates the last and ﬁrst name. The second comma is
inserted before sufﬁx text to make it clear that it is not part of the
author’s name for manipulation of name order or stripping to initials
Sufﬁx text will always print after the other information for this author.
d. for the fourth author’s name, enter:
University of California,, Berkeley
Corporate author names are entered with a following comma, so they
will not be manipulated like personal author names. In this case, the
corporate author name has a comma within the name. We inserted two
commas to allow for correct formatting. The ﬁrst comma makes it clear
that text up to that point should not be manipulated. The second
comma indicates that there is no ﬁrst name, yet includes sufﬁx text
4. Press Tab to accept the author name and move to the Year ﬁeld. Type “2006”

No extra punctuation (such as parentheses around the year) is entered into the
reference. endNote adds the necessary punctuation to the references when it
creates a bibliography.
Note that you can enter up to 64 k of text into the Abstract and Notes ﬁelds,
which amounts to 10-12 pages of text.
6. Attach a Pdf ﬁle to the reference. You can attach almost any type of ﬁle to the
file Attachments ﬁeld of a reference.
Scroll to the file Attachments ﬁeld, and from the References menu,
select file Attachments > Attach file to display a ﬁle dialog. on the ﬁle dialog:
a. Navigate to the folder Program files\endNote X7.
b. Notice the check box titled “Copy this ﬁle to the default ﬁle attachment
folder and create a relative link”. make sure that you select this box so that
endNote will make a copy of the ﬁle to store with the library.
That way, the attached ﬁle is always available to you, even
when you move the library.
c. Highlight the ﬁle titled endnoteX7Winhelp.pdf.
d. Click open to insert the ﬁle into the file Attachments ﬁeld.
A ﬁle icon will appear in the ﬁeld.
You can attach up to 45 different ﬁles to a single reference. double-click
the ﬁle icon to open the ﬁle with the default program for the ﬁle type.
