cut authors in citation

Feb 8, 2014 at 1:16 AM
Hey, first of all, I've to say that you did a great job with BibWord.
And secondly, I need help. I want to make my own style from modified Harvard Anglia..

In citation, instead of [Mehdi, 2005] I need it to appear [Meh-05].
So the citation cutdown the name of the first outhor to the first three letters and cut the year to the last 2 digits.

Anyone can help me please? Thanks a bunch

Basically you want to use the tag rather than the name of the author in the citation. Microsoft automatically fills in the tag as 3 letters and 2 digits if I'm not mistaken, but you are free to put in there whatever you want.

Thank you for the reply. I've managed to put tag in the citation, but it seems that tag cannot received symbols.. I can't put the "-" in tag box.. Is it default from Microsoft Word? Can I modified it from the style xml? I'm not that good with the programming language, but I can't find anything in the code that get rid of the symbols in tag.. Perhaps you can help??
