You want to focus on writing the best paper you can, but you need to cite your sources and track those sources. Word 2010 can help.
In Word, you can create a list of sources by inserting citations. Word then uses those citations to create a bibliography or a list of works cited.
First, click the bibliography style that you need in the Style box.
Now, when you click Insert Citation and Add New Source, you can add the information for your source.
When you're ready, click Bibliography, and then click the option you want.
That's the basics, and here are five how-to tips:
Click your bibliography.
If it looks like this, click Update Citations and Bibliography.
If it looks like this, press F9.
When you click Add New Source, click the Edit button next to the Author field.
Now you can type author names and click Add for as many authors as you need.
Click Manage Sources and then click the Browse button to import new sources. Now you can browse to a new source file, or you can save your existing source file to a disk or server and move it to a new computer.
In that Style list, click APA Sixth Edition. (This is the style I see requested most often.)
You can find more information on APA and MLA styles at their websites.
If the format you need isn't in the list--or if an existing format has changed more recently than Word 2010, you can create your own format. This is more complicated than a quick tip, but we have instructions to walk you through it.
Note: When you build your bibliography or your list of works cited, you can't automatically sort the sources in a different order or group them in categories.
I hope this helps with your reports.

Hey I am cofused how to create a format.
Joannie, can you explain the difference between text boxes and frames and when to use frames?
Creating your own format isn't simple, but I included a link to the instructions. Your first best bet, however, is to check the list in the Style box (and to confirm that you've installed Service Pack 1 for Word 2010).
Generally, use text boxes.
You can use frames if the text inside needs to include any of the following: comments, footnotes or end notes, or the following field codes: AUTONUM, AUTONUMLGL, AUTONUMOUT, TC (Table of Contents Entry), TOC (Table of Contents), RD (Referenced Document), XE (Index Entry), TA (Table of Authorities Entry), and TOA (Table of Authority) fields.
I replaced Office 2007 with Office 2010 so I'd have an up to date version of Chicago Style in Word. Now I see Microsoft didn't bother to update to the 16th Edition. When will Microsoft fix this problem and offer an update?
Hello, I am writing a document, which contains several consequent citations, e.g., [1,2,3,4]. I cannot figure out how I could logically group them together that they'd be presented as [1-4]. Is there any way to produce multiple citations?
Why is copy function turned off when completing source manager?
Generally I already have bib. ref. in a doc. Much faster and more accurate to copy & paste into source manager. Feels like the middle ages when I have to copy my source to a sheet of paper to transfer it to source manager.
Is there any way to insert a citation from a dissertation or a thesis? Why is not there an option for these sources among "type of sources" on "insert a citation" section in Word 2010?
Do I have to create a format for them?
Thanks a lot in advance!
You can either use the Report format or create a custom format.
I am a bit late to the party, but hopefully the Word team or a document superstar can help. I always work on reports that have references to different reports from the same corporate author in the same year. I need to generate:
1. Citations in the form of (Company, 2010a) and (Company, 2010b), with the "a" and "b" dynamic based on position in the document.
2. The associated bibliography.
The bibliography feature has great potential to help reduce hair loss in tech editors, but is not quite there yet for the documents in my company and I am hoping there is something I can add to get it there.
