Importing from Endnote - PDFs not imported

3 posts in this topic

Hi Team,

 

I have many references with both endnote bibliographic data and associated .pdfs. I have been trying to import both together through the Data/FromOtherSources/Endnote wizard, and I think I am following the instructions/set up correctly from here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/procedures/exchange_data_between_nvivo_and_reference_management_tools.htm?rhsearch=endnote&rhsyns=%20#Understand_how_files_associated_with_references_are_handled and here: http://help-nv11.qsrinternational.com/desktop/concepts/about_document_and_pdf_sources.htm.

 

I have also checked the Endnote file location so these should be accessible but there's a possibility this is still not right.

 

It is important to my research that the attributes from the bibliographic data are attached to the external reference as well as the pdf so I can see how the issues and arguments in the field have developed over time.

 

Advice appreciated, I think/hope this is something simple I've missed as it looks like this is what the wizard is set up to do.

 

Cheers,

Elizabeth G

Thanks Andrew, this is a reasonable work around though quite time consuming and takes a bit of practice to get consistently right. I've found for small numbers of updated references it's easier to import a new internal (.pdf), classify it as a reference and link it to the relevant memo and external manually.

 

Cheers,
