Sorry for the mind-reading exercise!   Dragging a  citation from EN 
to a Word document (saved as rtf) produces a link  {Allik, 1970, 
Allik1970} in the rtf document.  When done editing the rtf, I choose 
"RTF Document Scan" in Endnote, point to the rtf file, and it 
produces a new (renamed) rtf file that has all of the citations 
sorted properly and formatted in any style defined in Endnote.   You 
do all the editing on the original rtf file containing just the 
links.  That way there is no problem when you later edit the document 
and perhaps insert more citations.

THIS feature is the only reason I keep EN around.   One more time 
after clarification: Does anyone know of a good workaround for this?
