Adding entries to the database

To add entries to the database:

  1. You can add records directly into the database using the lower portion of the window shown in Creating a bibliographic database.
  2. Complete each of the fields as required. Use the Tab key to move between fields.
  3. It is best to use a unique name in the Short name field. This is used when inserting entries into documents.
  4. To complete the entry move to the last field and press Tab once more.
Image:documentation_note.png 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., [1],[2],...), 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.
