Vancouver in-text citations as superscript

Mar 9, 2013 at 6:11 PM
This site has been great so far, glad to have a Vancouver XSL to use.

It's perfect except for the citations. I want them to appear superscript in-text. I read your FAQ workaround here:

However, as somewhat of an amateur, I don't know what to do with that macro (or even what a macro is)! I opened the XSL file in Visual Studio 2005, Wordpad etc but I really don't know what I'm doing (even after a lot og googling!)! Could you take me through it step-by-step how to alter the referencing style in word to allow Vancouver citations to appear superscript?

I realise it's a limitation of Word and this is the only workaround, but I just don't know how to go about it. I can superscript all the citations manually, but there are a lot of them!

Any help appreciated. Thanks.

For more information on how to use macros, check out the following excellent guide:

Thanks very much, I followed the guide and created a working macro! Much appreciated.

I had one more question, which isn't so important but I wondered if it could be done.

I want the in-text citations to appear immediately after the punctuation mark (period, comma) without a space, and without any spaces between the citations, so that citations aren't included in the word count.

Is there a macro for that? I couldn't see one in the FAQ or searching Google.

Yves, can you offer any advice in response to my other questions?

Thanks for the tutorial. I used the macro and worked well. Now I have the same problem as cannibalwombat. Can you help us again, Yves?

Hi everyone,
 I want to do the same to allow Vancouver citations to appear superscript, and I will be grateful if somebody share the .XSL file, with the modifications that you have made to get this objective, I don't have the enough knowledge to do it by  myself because I have never written a code with this Programming language.

I'm sorry, I tried to do it by myself and I got it, obviously with help of your comments and links.

Thank you
