To format references in your paper, there is an Add-in for Microsoft Word 2016 for Windows and Mac. This is called RefWorks Citation Manager. Users of earlier versions of word will use a Plug-in called either Write-N-Cite or ProQuest for Word, which is available for download in their RefWorks account.
Once installed you can link your Word program to your RefWorks database and insert formatted citations and bibliographies into your papers.
If your Write-N-Cite/ProQuest for Word disappears from your Word (Windows version), follow the instructions in this document.

If you are using a footnote style and you insert a previously used reference it will automatically add it as an in-text citation. To change this to a footnote:
If you move text with linked references so that the order of references has changed you need to reapply the output style in order for the references to appear properly in the new order.
If you are using Chicago Notes & Bibliography and have inserted your bibliography, Write-N-Cite will not let you edit your footnotes. To edit your footnotes you will have to remove the bibliography.
If the Write-N-Cite tab disappears from the ribbon in Word it may have been disabled. To reenable:
