   Deleting a formatted citation 

      It is absolutely essential to use the Edit & Manage Citation(s) command to remove an unwanted citation, rather than backspace
     or delete keys. All associated EndNote field codes will be safely deleted from your document. To safely delete a formatted citation:

  • In Word, highlight the citation you want to delete.
  • From the EndNote tab, click the Edit & Manage Citation(s) button. In the Edit & Manage Citations dialog, ensure that the citation you want to delete is highlighted. If the citation is part of a multiple citation, make sure you select just the citation you want to delete.
  • From the Edit Reference menu, click Remove Citation.
  • Click OK.
