Problem
You previously worked with EndNote and now want to switch to Citavi. You would like to continue working on a document you created with EndNote using Citavi's Add-In for Word.

Solution
Depending on which edition of EndNote you were using, please follow the steps under A or B below.

A) EndNote Desktop
  1. Import your EndNote library into an empty Citavi project. Citavi retains the sequence numbers from your EndNote library. Importing into an empty project avoids conflicts that could occur with sequence numbers in an existing Citavi project.
  2. In the Word document, convert your EndNote fields to Citavi fields. On the Citavi ribbon click Convert > Convert EndNote fields to Citavi fields.
B) EndNote Basic (formerly EndNote Web)
  1. Export your EndNote library from EndNote Basic to a text file. On the Format tab, click Export references. Select EndNote Export and then click Save.
  2. Import the saved text file into an empty Citavi project. Citavi retains the sequence numbers from your EndNote library. Importing into an empty project avoids conflicts that could occur with sequence numbers  in an existing Citavi project.
  3. In the Word document, convert your EndNote field to Citavi fields: Convert > Convert EndNote fields to Citavi fields.
