Microsoft Word 2010: On starting a new document cannot insert an academic citation

Dear Experts,
I am starting to use MS Word 2010 and love its new features for managing academic sources.

I now have about 15 academic sources that pop up if I click "Manage Sources".  Previously when I was editing my last document, I could click on "Insert Citation" and then a list of in-text references would pop up.  I could click on the one I wanted and then the correct in-text reference would appear at the cursor position like this (Smith 1997).

Then when I clicked on "Insert Bibliography" the bibliography would reflect only those documents that I cited in my article.  

Now that I have stared a new document I can see all my references there when I click "Manage Sources" but the option to insert them does not appear when I click "Insert Citation"

How do I fix this?

Dear Anyoneis,
I have looked at this article now and it does not deal with the situation I describe in my original problem.  I could of course completely re-enter all the reference information that is already in my source database to make my reference appear under "Insert Citation" but that would be a terrible waste of effort given that the data is clearly there when I click "manage sources".

best wishes,

Phil

What happens if you type a period and then use your Insert Citation command?

That does not help.

I have actually found the solution by trial and error.

What you have to do is to click "Manage Sources".  Then under "Master List" you click on one or more sources and then you click the "Copy Button" to move them to the "Current List".

What is the procedure when you answer your own question? Can I close the question or award the points to myself?

Good to know. Thanks.

I think you just close the question. But a moderator should be around shortly to confirm.
