Datafiles created with earlier versions of Citation are automatically converted when you open them.

Before you convert your datafile to the new Citation format, we suggest that you copy the datafile to the folder with your Citation files.

To convert a datafile to Citation format

  1. Click the Open Datafile button on the Citation Toolbar. Citation will display the Open Datafile dialog.
  2. Enter the name of the datafile to be converted, then click OK.
As it is converting the datafile, Citation will attempt to determine which form should be used to display records. Those records for which Citation cannot make a certain determination will be put into Full Record forms.

You can use the Change Form feature to assign the proper forms for these records.
