Hello folks,

Does anyone have any experience of using open source equivalents to endnote on MS word?

I tried using Jabref and BibDesk to compile references in MS word, but it doesn't seem to be possible to link them to Word, I mean, to get them to generate the reference you want in word automatically, using the code assigned to the reference. All you can do (I think) is copy the reference from Jabref or BibDesk and paste it into word - but that loses some of the reference, ie date. Also, if that's all you can do then it seems a bit pointless having the program. It would be easier just to copy and paste from another word document.

Am I doing something really stupid?

Any help greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.
