Exchanging EndNote References with MS Access

Robert Gear of the University of California, San Francisco has made this guide and the associated MS Word macro code available freely for educational use on an as-is basis. There is no support provided. You could use similar principles to exchange data with a number of other programs such as spreadsheets should you want to.

EndNote References on a PDA

Currently (April 2004) only Palm PDAs can run PDA EndNote. I'm planning to use Robert Gear's Access export (above) together with abcDB, which enables you to use MS Access databases on your PDA, to be able to use my references on my PDA. If successful - and a limited trial has been, I'll write a short guide and put it up here. However, by then EndNote may be available on other PDAs! :-)

Information about abcDB is available from its manufacturer's (PocketSoft) website.
