Bibliography Sources Xml Editor

Before you can add a citation, a works cited list, or a bibliography, you must add a source to your document. A works cited list is a list of sources, usually placed at the end of a document, that you referred to (or "cited") in the document. A works cited list is different from a bibliography, which is a list of sources that you consulted when you created the document. After you add sources, you can automatically generate a works cited list or a bibliography based on that source information. Each time that you create a new source, the source information is saved on your computer. You can use the Source Manager to find and reuse any source that you have created, even sources in other documents.

Citations are parenthetical references that are placed inline with the text. Citations are different from footnotes and endnotes, which are placed at the bottom of the page or end of the document. The source information stored in the Citations tool or Source Manager can be used to create citations, a works cited list, or a bibliography. However, you cannot use the information in the Citations tool or the Source Manager to create footnotes or endnotes.

Hi rachetta,

Maybe, then there is a stability issue with your OS X setup or the Office installation itself.

Have you tried running Office under a 'Safe Boot' to see whether the problem persists? If it doesn't, the implication is that the problem is caused by a background program or service. If it does, you may need to repair your OS and/or reinstall Office. For reinstalling Office, see: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/2025907

Hi Paul,

AFAIK, Sources.xml is the only file used for the 'master' list. However, every cited reference in your dissertation should still be in that. You can add those back to the 'master' list from a given document's list via a macro like:
Sub SourcesRebuild() Dim oSrc As Source 'Don't throw an error if the source is already present On Error Resume Next For Each oSrc In ActiveDocument.Bibliography.Sources Application.Bibliography.Sources.Add oSrc.XML Next End Sub
For backup/restore purposes, you can also export the 'master' list to a new document from which it can later be restored, using macros like:
Sub SourcesExport() Dim oSrc As Source, StrSrc As String With ActiveDocument .Range.Text = vbNullString For Each oSrc In Application.Bibliography.Sources StrSrc = StrSrc & vbCr & oSrc.XML Next .Range.InsertAfter StrSrc .Paragraphs.First.Range.Delete End With End Sub Sub SourcesImport() Dim i As Long, StrSrc As String 'Don't throw an error if the source is already present On Error Resume Next With ActiveDocument For i = 0 To UBound(Split(.Range.Text, vbCr)) Application.Bibliography.Sources.Add Split(.Range.Text, vbCr)(i) Next End With End Sub
Writing the list to a document, instead of adding them to its bibliography or simply backing up Sources.xml, makes it easier to delete entries that are no longer needed before reimporting the list.
