Adding entries to the database
To add entries to the database:
- You can add records directly into the database using the lower portion of the window shown in
Creating a bibliographic database.
- Complete each of the fields as required. Use the Tab key to move between fields.
- It is best to use a unique name in the Short name field. This is used when inserting entries into documents.
- To complete the entry move to the last field and press Tab once more.
|| The Identifier column in the upper portion of the Bibliography Database window is labeled Short name in the lower portion of the window.
If your document requires [Author, date] style citations, use the Identifier (Short name) field of the database to record the information in the required format. If you are using a simple citation numbering system (e.g., ,,...), use a unique reference of some sort in the Identifier (Short name) field. Writer will auto-number entries based on the position within the document.
