      Is Word 2007 compatible with EndNote Web?

      The short answer is Yes - Word 2007 is compatible with EndNote Web. You may find it comes up with a few error messages, but if you click OK in response to these, EndNote Web will work perfectly.

      Because of the way the new version of Word works, you no longer have the EndNote Web Toolbar. Instead, you have an extra tab called EndNote Web, which gives you access to all the functions which used to be on the toolbar.

      EndNote Web, LaTeX and BibTeX

      A number of people have asked whether EndNote Web is compatible with LaTeX and BibTeX. The answer is yes, and you will find some very helpful guides here

      Note: The guides on these pages refere to the full EndNote Desktop version of the software, rather than specifically to EndNote Web. However, much of the advice can still be used in EndNote Web.
