Connection Files and Filters

EndNote uses import filters and connection files which are updated independently from EndNote's installed software. If you are having problems using a database in EndNote you may need to install a new filter or connection file.

Downloading and Installing Individual Filters

  • Right click on the import filter.
  • Save it the file. Now locate the file and double-click the filter file to open in EndNote.
  • In EndNote, click “File Menu” and choose “Save as”. Remove the word “copy” and click “Save”.
  • Click on “File Menu” and choose “Close Filter”.
