vancouver style not showing up in Word style list

May 18, 2009 at 1:30 AM

I recently downloaded the Vancouver style (vancover.XSL) and saved in the bibliography\style folder of my computer (C:\...\Program Files\Microsoft Office\Office12\Bibliography\Style ).   However, when looking at the folder, it does not seem to appear there at first glance.  I have to click on the "Compatibility files" button in order to see it.  When I open Microsoft Word and use my bibliography functions, it does not appear among the list of styles. I cannot seem to use it.  

Can you please help?

If the file is only visible under "Compatibility files", it means it is not really there but rather in a virtual store. Make sure you have elevated priviliges to actually put the file in the folder. That way it won't be sidetracked to a virtual store.

(Note that all changes in the Program Files directory, or its subdirectories, normally require administrator rights)
